Accession:GO:0002319 term browser browse the term
Definition:The process in which a B cell acquires the specialized features of a memory B cell. Memory B cells are cells that can respond rapidly to antigen re-exposure by production of high-affinity antibody.
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'.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: memory B-lymphocyte differentiation
 related_synonym: memory B cell development
