Ontology Biological Process
Definition The process in which a relatively unspecialized cell acquires the specialized features of a natural killer cell.
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'.
