Term Information [More information on axon initial segment]

Accession
GO:0043194
Name
axon initial segment
Ontology
cellular_component
Synonyms
initial segment
Definition
Portion of the axon proximal to the neuronal cell body, at the level of the axon hillock. The action potentials that propagate along the axon are generated at the level of this initial segment. Source: GOC:sl, PMID:21551097, PMID:1754851, GOC:nln
