Term Information

Accession
GO:0050931
Name
pigment cell differentiation
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
chromatophore differentiation, pigmented cell differentiation
Alternate IDs
GO:0043357, GO:0043358
Definition
The process in which a relatively unspecialized cell acquires the specialized features of a pigmented cell, such as a melanocyte. Source: GOC:dgh
Comment
Note that the chromatophore mentioned here is distinct from the pigment bearing structure found in certain photosynthetic bacteria and cyanobacteria. It is also different from the plant chromoplast, which is also sometimes called a chromatophore.
