Term Information [More information on relaxation of smooth muscle]

Accession
GO:0044557
Name
relaxation of smooth muscle
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
smooth muscle relaxation
Definition
A process in which the extent of smooth muscle contraction is reduced. Smooth muscle differs from striated muscle in the much higher actin/myosin ratio, the absence of conspicuous sarcomeres and the ability to contract to a much smaller fraction of its resting length. Source: GOC:jl
