antigen transcytosis by m cells in mucosal-associated lymphoid tissue Gene Set

Dataset GO Biological Process Annotations
Category structural or functional annotations
Type biological process
Description The process of antigen transcytosis carried out by M cells in the mucosal-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT). Transcytosis is the process of the directed movement of endocytosed material through the cell and its exocytosis from the plasma membrane at the opposite side. M cells are specialized epithelia cells with a microfold structure that are adept at moving antigens from the gut lumen to antigen presenting cells in the MALT. (Gene Ontology, GO_0002412)
