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: vascular cord
Definition: The primordial vasculature that will develop into blood vessels by the process of tubulogenesis. The vascular cord is composed of angioblast or vascular endothelial cells in a solid linear mass called a cord. The cord then undergoes tubulogenesis to form the lumen of the vessels.

Name: Notch signaling pathway
Synonyms: N signaling pathway, N signalling pathway, Notch receptor signaling pathway, Notch receptor signalling pathway, Notch signalling pathway, Notch-receptor signaling pathway, Notch-receptor signalling pathway
Definition: A series of molecular signals initiated by the binding of an extracellular ligand to the receptor Notch on the surface of a target cell, and ending with regulation of a downstream cellular process, e.g. transcription.
