For the Mouse gene set with the same name, see GOBP_ASTROCYTE_DIFFERENTIATION

Standard name GOBP_ASTROCYTE_DIFFERENTIATION
Systematic name M13469
Brief description The process in which a relatively unspecialized cell acquires the specialized features of an astrocyte. An astrocyte is the most abundant type of glial cell. Astrocytes provide support for neurons and regulate the environment in which they function. [GOC:vp, PMID:15139015]
