Term Information

Accession
GO:0002329
Name
pre-B cell differentiation
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
pre-B lymphocyte differentiation, pre-B cell development
Alternate IDs
None
Definition
The process in which a precursor cell type acquires the specialized features of a pre-B cell. Pre-B cells follow the pro-B cell stage of immature B cell differentiation and undergo rearrangement of heavy chain V, D, and J gene segments. Source: ISBN:0781735149, GOC:jal
Comment
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'.
