Term Information [More information on ciliary rootlet]

Accession
GO:0035253
Name
ciliary rootlet
Ontology
cellular_component
Synonyms
cilial rootlet, cilium rootlet
Definition
A cytoskeleton-like structure, originating from the basal body at the proximal end of a cilium, and extending proximally toward the cell nucleus. Rootlets are typically 80-100 nm in diameter and contain cross striae distributed at regular intervals of approximately 55-70 nm. Source: GOC:cilia, PMID:12427867
