amacrine cell differentiation Gene Set

Dataset GO Biological Process Annotations
Category structural or functional annotations
Type biological process
Description The process in which a relatively unspecialized cell acquires specialized features of an amacrine cell, an interneuron generated in the inner nuclear layer (INL) of the vertebrate retina. Amacrine cells integrate, modulate, and interpose a temporal domain in the visual message presented to the retinal ganglion cells, with which they synapse in the inner plexiform layer. Amacrine cells lack large axons. (Gene Ontology, GO_0035881)
