Name: neuromast hair cell
Synonyms: neuromast hair cells
Definition: Neuromast hair cell is a hair cell that acts as a sensory receptor of the neuromast; it is morphologically polarized as a result of the relative position of the single kinocilium and the clusters of stereocilia on its apical surface.

Name: cilium assembly
Synonyms: ciliogenesis, cilium assembly, cilium biogenesis, cilium formation, cilium morphogenesis, cilium organization, microtubule-based flagellum assembly
Definition: The assembly of a cilium, a specialized eukaryotic organelle that consists of a filiform extrusion of the cell surface. Each cilium is bounded by an extrusion of the cytoplasmic membrane, and contains a regular longitudinal array of microtubules, anchored basally in a centriole.
