Term Information [More information on iridophore differentiation]

Accession
GO:0050935
Name
iridophore differentiation
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
iridophore cell differentiation
Definition
The process in which a relatively unspecialized cell acquires the specialized features of an iridophore. Iridophores are pigment cells derived from the neural crest. They contain guanidine or other purine crystals deposited in stacks called reflecting platets or iridisomes. This gives them a silver, gold, or iridescent appearance.
