Term Detail
GO term:T cell homeostasis
Synonym: T-cell homeostasis
Synonym: T lymphocyte homeostasis
Synonym: T-lymphocyte homeostasis
GO id:GO:0043029
Definition:The process of regulating the proliferation and elimination of T cells such that the total number of T cells within a whole or part of an organism is stable over time in the absence of an outside stimulus.
CommentsNote that this term represents the return of T cell levels to stable numbers following an immune response as well as the proliferation and elimination of T cells required to maintain stable numbers in the absence of an outside stimulus.
Number of paths to term: 2
