Term Information [More information on retinal pigment epithelium development]

Accession
GO:0003406
Name
retinal pigment epithelium development
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
RPE development
Definition
The progression of the retinal pigment epithelium over time, from its initial formation to the mature structure. The retinal pigment epithelium is the melanin-containing layer of cells between the retina and the choroid that absorbs scattered and reflected light and removes waste products produced by the photoreceptor cells.
