Term Information [More information on lateral inhibition]

Accession
GO:0046331
Name
lateral inhibition
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
None
Definition
Signaling between cells of equivalent developmental potential that results in these cells adopting different developmental fates. An example is the suppression by cells with a particular fate of the adoption of the same fate by surrounding cells. Source: GOC:kmv, GOC:bf
