cell fate commitment involved in pattern specification Gene Set

Dataset GO Biological Process Annotations
Category structural or functional annotations
Type biological process
Description The commitment of cells to specific cell fates and their capacity to differentiate into particular kinds of cells within a field of cells that will exhibit a certain pattern of differentiation. Positional information is established through protein signals that emanate from a localized source within a developmental field resulting in specification of a cell type. Those signals are then interpreted in a cell-autonomous manner resulting in the determination of the cell type. (Gene Ontology, GO_0060581)
