Term Detail
GO term:penile erection
GO id:GO:0043084
Definition:The hardening, enlarging and rising of the penis which often occurs in the sexually aroused male and enables sexual intercourse. Achieved by increased inflow of blood into the vessels of erectile tissue, and decreased outflow.
Number of paths to term: 10
