Term Information [More information on outer acrosomal membrane]

Accession
GO:0002081
Name
outer acrosomal membrane
Ontology
cellular_component
Synonyms
None
Definition
The acrosomal membrane region that underlies the plasma membrane of the sperm. This membrane fuses with the sperm plasma membrane as part of the acrosome reaction. Source: GOC:dph, PMID:8936405
Comment
Note that this term is not a descendant of 'organelle outer membrane ; GO:0031968' because the outer acrosomal membrane is a portion of the acrosomal membrane; the latter is a single lipid bilayer.
