Cell Polarity definition: Orientation of intracellular structures especially with respect to the apical and basolateral domains of the plasma membrane. Polarized cells must direct proteins from the Golgi apparatus to the appropriate domain since tight junctions prevent proteins from diffusing between the two domains.
cellular polarity definition: characteristic cellular asymmetry at the morphologic or functional level, especially involving the cell membrane; e.g., animal-vegetal polarity in ova, axons and dendrites in neurons, unidirectional absorption by polarized epithelia; do not confuse with MEMBRANE POTENTIAL.
Polarity definition: The positive or negative direction of an electrical, acoustical, or magnetic force.
molecular polarity definition: polarization caused by the asymmetric nature of certain molecules or crystal structures.
establishment or maintenance of cell polarity definition: Any cellular process that results in the specification, formation or maintenance of anisotropic intracellular organization or cell growth patterns. [GOC:mah]
establishment or maintenance of neuroblast polarity definition: Any cellular process that results in the specification, formation or maintenance of the apicobasal polarity of a neuroblast cell, a progenitor of the central nervous system. [GOC:bf, GOC:mah, GOC:mtg_sensu]
establishment of neuroblast polarity definition: The specification and formation of the apicobasal polarity of a neuroblast cell, a progenitor of the central nervous system. [GOC:bf, GOC:mtg_sensu]
maintenance of neuroblast polarity definition: The maintenance of the apicobasal polarity of a neuroblast cell, a progenitor of the central nervous system. [GOC:bf, GOC:mtg_sensu]
establishment of cell polarity definition: The specification and formation of anisotropic intracellular organization or cell growth patterns. [GOC:mah]
maintenance of cell polarity definition: The maintenance of established anisotropic intracellular organization or cell growth patterns. [GOC:mah]
