Term Information

Accession
GO:0030217
Name
T cell differentiation
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
T lymphocyte differentiation, T-cell differentiation, T-lymphocyte differentiation, T cell development
Alternate IDs
GO:0042112, GO:0046652
Definition
The process in which a precursor cell type acquires characteristics of a more mature T-cell. A T cell is a type of lymphocyte whose definin characteristic is the expression of a T cell receptor complex. Source: GO_REF:0000022, GOC:mah, GOC:jid
Comment
Note that the term 'thymocyte differentiation' was merged into this term because thymocytes are T cells, and thus the term was essentially redundant. 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'.
