Term Detail
GO term:cell communication
GO id:GO:0007154
Definition:Any process that mediates interactions between a cell and its surroundings. Encompasses interactions such as signaling or attachment between one cell and another cell, between a cell and an extracellular matrix, or between a cell and any other aspect of its environment.
Number of paths to term: 1
