Term Information

Accession
GO:0030183
Name
B cell differentiation
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
B lymphocyte differentiation, B-cell differentiation, B-lymphocyte differentiation, B cell development
Alternate IDs
GO:0042115
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: GO_REF:0000022, GOC:mah
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'.
