Term Information [More information on osteoclast differentiation]

Accession
GO:0030316
Name
osteoclast differentiation
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
osteoclast cell differentiation
Definition
The process in which a relatively unspecialized monocyte acquires the specialized features of an osteoclast. An osteoclast is a specialized phagocytic cell associated with the absorption and removal of the mineralized matrix of bone tissue. Source: PMID:12161749, GOC:add, ISBN:0781735149, CL:0000092
