Term Detail
GO term:myoblast fusion
GO id:GO:0007520
Definition:A process in which non-proliferating myoblasts fuse to existing fibers or to myotubes to form new fibers. A myoblast is a mononucleate cell type that, by fusion with other myoblasts, gives rise to the myotubes that eventually develop into skeletal muscle fibers.
Number of paths to term: 14
