Term Information [More information on sperm flagellum]

Accession
GO:0036126
Name
sperm flagellum
Ontology
cellular_component
Synonyms
sperm cilium, sperm tail
Definition
A microtubule-based flagellum (or cilium) that is part of a sperm, a mature male germ cell that develops from a spermatid. Source: PMID:8441407, GOC:sart, GOC:cilia
Comment
Note that cilia and eukaryotic flagella are deemed to be equivalent. In this case community usage is always 'flagellum', hence the primary term name, but the cilium parentage is deliberate.
