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 a white adipocyte, an animal connective tissue cell involved in energy storage. White adipocytes have cytoplasmic lipids arranged in a unique vacuole. (Gene Ontology, GO_0050872)
