satellite cell asymmetric division

id: GO:0014833
name: satellite cell asymmetric division
namespace: biological_process
type: go
obsolete: False

Description: The asymmetric division of a satellite cell that occurs when a satellite cell divides to produce two daughter cells, one of which is destined to differentiate and the other to be a quiescent cell that restocks the satellite cell pool. Satellite cells are quiescent adult muscle stem cells that become activated to divide and differentiate in response to muscle damage.
