Synonyms
alt. id: GO:0035085, GO:0035086
ciliary axoneme, cilium axoneme, flagellar axoneme, flagellum axoneme
Definition
The bundle of microtubules and associated proteins that forms the core of cilia (also called flagella) in eukaryotic cells and is responsible for their movements. Source: ISBN:0198547684, GOC:bf, GOC:cilia
Comment
Note that cilia and eukaryotic flagella are deemed to be equivalent. In Diplomonads species such as Giardia, the axoneme may extend intracellularly up to 5um away from the plane of the plasma membrane.
