From Biology-Online Dictionary
noun, plural: neoantigens
A newly expressed antigen on tumor cells or cells infected with oncoviruses.
The antigen is produced in the tumor cells, and found usually on the cell surface where it acts as a signal that the cell has to be destroyed before the cell proliferates or metastasize.
