Term:cell differentiation

Accession:GO:0030154 term browser browse the term
Definition:The process in which relatively unspecialized cells, e.g. embryonic or regenerative cells, acquire specialized structural and/or functional features that characterize the cells, tissues, or organs of the mature organism or some other relatively stable phase of the organism's life history. Differentiation includes the processes involved in commitment of a cell to a specific fate and its subsequent development to the mature state.
Synonyms:xref: Wikipedia:Cellular_differentiation
