Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

A cell turning into more specialized one in form and function is known as cell differentiation.

The process brings following changes to the cell:

change in size

change in shape

change in their response

change in their activity

However there is generally no change in the sequence of dna.

For example zygote it changes from single cell to embryo to fetus.

 There are some cells which can differentiate into many cell types. They are called pluripotent.

While totipotent are the ones who differentiate into all cell types.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
