sensitized cell

sen·si·tized cell

1. a cell that has been exposed to antigen and activated.
2. a small, "committed," cell derived, by division and differentiation, from a resting lymphocyte;
3. a cell, including a bacterial cell, which has combined with specific antibody to form a complex capable of reacting with complement components.

(sen'si-tīzd sel)
1. A cell that has combined with antibody to form a complex capable of reacting with complement components.
2. A small, "committed," cell derived, by division and differentiation, from a transformed lymphocyte.
3. A cell that has been either exposed to antigen or opsonized with antibodies and/or complement.
