Note: This page represents a term created by the combination ("post-composition") of two ontology terms. For more information on the individual terms, click the hyperlinked name.
Name: Kupffer's vesicle
Synonyms: ciliated organ of asymmetry
Definition: Small but distinctive epithelial sac containing fluid, located midventrally posterior to the yolk cell or its extension, and transiently present during most of the segmentation period. Kupffer's vesicle has been compared to the mouse embryonic node.
Ontology: Anatomy Ontology [ZFA:0000001]
Name: cilium assembly
Synonyms: ciliogenesis, 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.
