Term Information [More information on desmosome assembly]

Accession
GO:0002159
Name
desmosome assembly
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
None
Definition
A cellular process that results in the aggregation, arrangement and bonding together of a set of components to form a desmosome. A desmosome is a patch-like intercellular junction found in vertebrate tissues, consisting of parallel zones of two cell membranes, separated by an space of 25-35 nm, and having dense fibrillar plaques in the subjacent cytoplasm.

Comment
Desmosomes link two cells together; hemidesmosomes attach one cell to the extracellular matrix.
