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: lateral crista
Synonyms: lateral crista ampullaris, lateral cristae, lateral semicircular canal sensory patch, lateral semicircular canal sensory patches, lc, medial crista
Definition: Patch of thickened, pseudostratified epithelium that is associated with the lateral semicircular canal. It consists of regular arrays of sensory hair cells interspersed with supporting cells. The lateral crista has its own characteristic shape and polarity pattern. (See Anatomical Atlas entry for sensory patches of the ear by T. Whitfield.)
Ontology: Anatomy Ontology [ZFA:0000166]
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.
