GO term:cartilage development
Synonym: cartilage biogenesis
Synonym: cartilage biosynthesis
Synonym: cartilage formation
Synonym: chondrogenesis
GO id:GO:0051216
Definition:The process whose specific outcome is the progression of the cartilage over time, from its formation to the mature structure. Cartilage is a connective tissue dominated by extracellular matrix containing collagen type II and large amounts of proteoglycan, particularly chondroitin sulfate.
Number of paths to term: 12
