Blast transformation

(Science: haematology) The morphological and biochemical changes in lymphocytes, both B and t, on exposure to antigen or to a mitogen. The cells appear to move from G0 to G1 stage of the cell cycle. They usually enlarge and proceed to s phase and mitosis later. The process probably involves receptor cross linking on the plasma membrane.
