The process whose specific outcome is the progression of the endocrine pancreas over time, from its formation to the mature structure. The endocrine pancreas is made up of islet cells that produce insulin, glucagon and somatostatin. A biological process whose specific outcome is the progression of a cell over time from an initial condition to a later condition. The process whose specific outcome is the progression of the cell over time, from its formation to the mature structure. Cell development does not include the steps involved in committing a cell to a specific fate. The process whereby relatively unspecialized cells acquire specialized structural and functional features of a pancreatic E cell. A pancreatic E cell is a cell in the pancreas that secretes ghrelin. The process whereby relatively unspecialized cells, e.g. embryonic or regenerative cells, acquire specialized structural and/or functional features that characterize the cells, tissues, or organs of the mature organism or some other relatively stable phase of the organism's life history. Differentiation includes the processes involved in commitment of a cell to a specific fate and its subsequent development to the mature state. The process whose specific outcome is the progression of a pancreatic E cell over time, from its formation to the mature structure.
