Accession:GO:0031507 term browser browse the term
Definition:An epigenetic gene silencing mechanism that involves the assembly of chromatin into heterochromatin, resulting in a chromatin conformation refractory to transcription. This process starts with heterochromatin nucleation, its spreading, and ends with heterochromatin boundary formation.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: chromatin silencing;   chromatin-mediated silencing;   establishment of heterochromatin architecture;   heterochromatin formation;   transcriptional gene silencing
 narrow_synonym: establishment of heterochromatin architecture involved in chromatin silencing at centromere outer repeat region;   establishment of heterochromatin architecture involved in chromatin silencing at pericentric region;   heterochromatin assembly involved in chromatin silencing at centromere outer repeat region;   heterochromatin assembly involved in chromatin silencing at pericentric region;   heterochromatin formation involved in chromatin silencing at centromere outer repeat region;   heterochromatin formation involved in chromatin silencing at pericentric region
 broad_synonym: TGS;   heterochromatin maintenance
 related_synonym: establishment of chromatin silencing;   establishment of heterochromatic silencing;   heterochromatic silencing;   heterochromatin assembly involved in chromatin silencing;   heterochromatin formation involved in chromatin silencing
 alt_id: GO:0006342;   GO:0006343;   GO:0016440;   GO:0070869;   GO:1904497
