schwann cell development Gene Set

Dataset GO Biological Process Annotations
Category structural or functional annotations
Type biological process
Description The process aimed at the progression of a Schwann cell over time, from initial commitment of the cell to a specific fate, to the fully functional differentiated cell. Schwann cells are found in the peripheral nervous system, where they insulate neurons and axons, and regulate the environment in which neurons function. (Gene Ontology, GO_0014044)
