Term Information [More information on Schwann cell differentiation]

Accession
GO:0014037
Name
Schwann cell differentiation
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
None
Definition
The process in which a relatively unspecialized cell acquires the specialized features of a Schwann cell. Schwann cells are found in the peripheral nervous system, where they insulate neurons and axons, and regulate the environment in which neurons function. Source: GOC:ef
