go back to main search page
Accession:GO:0003168 term browser browse the term
Definition:The process in which a relatively unspecialized cell acquires the specialized structural and/or functional features of a Purkinje myocyte (also known as cardiac Purkinje fiber cell). These cells are specialized cardiomyocytes that receive signals from the bundle of His and innervate the ventricular cardiac muscle.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: cardiac Purkinje fiber cell differentiation
