Accession:GO:0035147 term browser browse the term
Definition:Fusing of specific tracheal branches in an open tracheal system to branches from neighboring hemisegments to form a continuous tracheal network. Branch fusion is mediated by individual cells at the tip of each branch, which contact a similar cell and undergo a coordinated series of morphogenetic events that create a bicellular fusion joint.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: tracheal branch fusion
 only_in_taxon: NCBITaxon:33317 ! Protostomia
