Definition English:   Morphologic alteration of small B LYMPHOCYTES or T LYMPHOCYTES in culture into large blast-like cells able to synthesize DNA and RNA and to divide mitotically. It is induced by INTERLEUKINS; MITOGENS such as PHYTOHEMAGGLUTININS, and by specific ANTIGENS. It may also occur in vivo as in GRAFT REJECTION. 
Indexing Annotation English:   lymphocyte transformation test goes here but do not index under specific agent inducing transformation unless particularly discussed; do not use for neoplastic transformation of lymphocytes ( = CELL TRANSFORMATION, NEOPLASTIC) or viral transformation of lymphocytes ( = CELL TRANSFORMATION, VIRAL); blast transformation in chronic myelogenous leukemia does not go here: index BLAST CRISIS; DF: LYMPHOCYTE TRANSFORM
See Related English:   Blast Crisis
 
History Note English:   2003 (1969); for BLAST TRANSFORMATION use BLAST CRISIS 1987-1992
