GO term:dorsal/ventral axis specification
Synonym: dorsal/ventral axis determination
Synonym: dorsal-ventral axis specification
Synonym: dorsoventral axis specification
GO id:GO:0009950
Definition:The establishment, maintenance and elaboration of the dorsal/ventral axis. The dorsal/ventral axis is defined by a line that runs orthogonal to both the anterior/posterior and left/right axes. The dorsal end is defined by the upper or back side of an organism. The ventral end is defined by the lower or front side of an organism.
Number of paths to term: 16
