Term Information [More information on tendon cell differentiation]

Accession
GO:0035990
Name
tendon cell differentiation
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
muscle attachment cell differentiation, tenocyte differentiation
Definition
The process in which a relatively unspecialized cell acquires the specialized features of a tendon cell. Tendon cell are elongated fibrocytes in which the cytoplasm is stretched between the collagen fibres of the tendon. Tendon cells have a central cell nucleus with a prominent nucleolus, a well-developed rough endoplasmic reticulum, and are responsible for synthesis and turnover of tendon fibres and ground substance.
