Term Information [More information on stereocilium]

Accession
GO:0032420
Name
stereocilium
Ontology
cellular_component
Synonyms
None
Definition
An actin-based protrusion from the apical surface of auditory and vestibular hair cells and of neuromast cells. These protrusions are supported by a bundle of cross-linked actin filaments (an actin cable), oriented such that the plus (barbed) ends are at the tip of the protrusion, capped by a tip complex which bridges to the plasma. Bundles of stereocilia act as mechanosensory organelles. Source: GOC:ecd, PMID:15661519, PMID:7840137
