Term Information [More information on leukocyte differentiation]

Accession
GO:0002521
Name
leukocyte differentiation
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
immune cell differentiation, leucocyte differentiation
Definition
The process in which a relatively unspecialized hemopoietic precursor cell acquires the specialized features of a leukocyte. A leukocyte is an achromatic cell of the myeloid or lymphoid lineages capable of ameboid movement, found in blood or other tissue. Source: CL:0000738, PMID:16551264, GOC:add
