skeletal muscle tissue development Gene Set

Dataset GO Biological Process Annotations
Category structural or functional annotations
Type biological process
Description The developmental sequence of events leading to the formation of adult skeletal muscle tissue. The main events are: the fusion of myoblasts to form myotubes that increase in size by further fusion to them of myoblasts, the formation of myofibrils within their cytoplasm and the establishment of functional neuromuscular junctions with motor neurons. At this stage they can be regarded as mature muscle fibers. (Gene Ontology, GO_0007519)
