Term Information [More information on myoblast fusion]

Accession
GO:0007520
Name
myoblast fusion
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
None
Definition
A process in which non-proliferating myoblasts fuse to existing fibers or to myotubes to form new fibers. A myoblast is a mononucleate cell type that, by fusion with other myoblasts, gives rise to the myotubes that eventually develop into skeletal muscle fibers. Source: GOC:mtg_muscle, CL:0000056
