Term Information [More information on engulfment of apoptotic cell]

Accession
GO:0043652
Name
engulfment of apoptotic cell
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
engulfment of apoptotic cell corpse, engulfment of cell corpse
Definition
The removal of the apoptotic cell by phagocytosis, by a neighboring cell or by a phagocyte. Source: GOC:rk, PMID:15536015
Comment
This term should be used to annotate gene products from the engulfing cell that facilitate phagocytosis of apoptotic cells. It should not be mistaken with GO:0070782 'phosphatidylserine exposure on apoptotic cell surface', a process occurring in apoptotic cells that acts as a signal for engulfing cells. If gene products involved in such instances of phosphatidylserine exposure are shown to have a positive effect on engulfment, they may be annotated to GO:1901076 'positive regulation of engulfment of apoptotic cell'.
