Term Information

Accession
GO:0030437
Name
ascospore formation
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
ascospore biosynthesis, spore formation, sporulation
Alternate IDs
GO:0007151
Definition
The process in which cells that are products of meiosis acquire the specialized features of ascospores. Ascospores are generally found in clusters of four or eight spores within a single mother cell, the ascus, and are characteristic of the ascomycete fungi (phylum Ascomycota). Source: GOC:mcc, GOC:mah, GOC:di, PMID:16339736
Comment
Note that ascospores and asci are separate biological structures. The ascus is the structure that contain the ascospores, but the development of the ascus is a different process than the formation of the ascospores themselves; for instance, some mutations affect sporulation without affecting ascus development. For this reason, GO:0030437 ascospore formation and GO:0075317 ascus development are different terms and are not linked.
