Term Information [More information on postsynaptic membrane]

Accession
GO:0045211
Name
postsynaptic membrane
Ontology
cellular_component
Synonyms
post-synaptic membrane
Definition
A specialized area of membrane facing the presynaptic membrane on the tip of the nerve ending and separated from it by a minute cleft (the synaptic cleft). Neurotransmitters cross the synaptic cleft and transmit the signal to the postsynaptic membrane. Source: ISBN:0198506732
