Term Information [More information on epithelial tube morphogenesis]

Accession
GO:0060562
Name
epithelial tube morphogenesis
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
None
Definition
The process in which the anatomical structures of a tube are generated and organized from an epithelium. Epithelial tubes transport gases, liquids and cells from one site to another and form the basic structure of many organs and tissues, with tube shape and organization varying from the single-celled excretory organ in Caenorhabditis elegans to the branching trees of the mammalian kidney and insect tracheal system.
