Term Information

Accession
GO:0046632
Name
alpha-beta T cell differentiation
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
alpha-beta T lymphocyte differentiation, alpha-beta T-cell differentiation, alpha-beta T-lymphocyte differentiation, alpha-beta T cell development
Alternate IDs
None
Definition
The process in which a precursor cell type acquires the specialized features of an alpha-beta T cell. An alpha-beta T cell is a T cell that expresses an alpha-beta T cell receptor complex. Source: CL:0000789, GOC:ai
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'.
