Term Detail
GO term:adaptive immune response
Synonym: acquired immune response
GO id:GO:0002250
Definition:An immune response based on directed amplification of specific receptors for antigen produced through a somatic diversification process, and allowing for enhanced response to subsequent exposures to the same antigen (immunological memory).
CommentsThis term was added by GO_REF:0000022.
Number of paths to term: 2
