Term Information [More information on B cell differentiation]

Accession
GO:0030183
Name
B cell differentiation
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
alt. id: GO:0042115
B lymphocyte differentiation, B-cell differentiation, B-lymphocyte differentiation, B cell development
Definition
The process in which a precursor cell type acquires the specialized features of a B cell. A B cell is a lymphocyte of B lineage with the phenotype CD19-positive and capable of B cell mediated immunity. Source: GOC:mah, GOC:mtg_15nov05, GO_REF:0000022
Comment
This term was improved by GO_REF:0000022. It was moved. Note that immunologists typically use the word 'development' to refer to cells of B or T cell lineages undergoing the process that GO describes as 'cell differentiation'.
