Term Information [More information on dendritic cell differentiation]

Accession
GO:0097028
Name
dendritic cell differentiation
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
None
Definition
The process in which a precursor cell type acquires the specialized features of a dendritic cell. A dendritic cell is a leukocyte of dendritic lineage specialized in the uptake, processing, and transport of antigens to lymph nodes for the purpose of stimulating an immune response via T cell activation. Source: CL:0000451, GOC:pr
Comment
Note that immunologists typically use the word 'maturation' to refer to dendritic cells undergoing the process that GO describes as 'cell differentiation'.
