GO:0050931 pigment cell differentiation

Term Information

ID GO:0050931
Name pigment cell differentiation
Ontology Biological Process
Definition The process in which a relatively unspecialized cell acquires the specialized features of a pigmented cell, such as a melanocyte.
Comment Note that the chromatophore mentioned here is distinct from the pigment bearing structure found in certain photosynthetic bacteria and cyanobacteria. It is also different from the plant chromoplast, which is also sometimes called a chromatophore.
Secondary IDs GO:0043357 GO:0043358
