Term Information [More information on astrocyte differentiation]

Accession
GO:0048708
Name
astrocyte differentiation
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
None
Definition
The process in which a relatively unspecialized cell acquires the specialized features of an astrocyte. An astrocyte is the most abundant type of glial cell. Astrocytes provide support for neurons and regulate the environment in which they function. Source: GOC:vp, PMID:15139015
