Term Information [More information on axon terminus]

Accession
GO:0043679
Name
axon terminus
Ontology
cellular_component
Synonyms
axon terminal, nerve ending, axon terminal specialization, motor endplate
Definition
Terminal inflated portion of the axon, containing the specialized apparatus necessary to release neurotransmitters. The axon terminus is considered to be the whole region of thickening and the terminal button is a specialized region of it. Source: GOC:dph, GOC:jl
