Term Information [More information on tetraspanin-enriched microdomain]

Accession
GO:0097197
Name
tetraspanin-enriched microdomain
Ontology
cellular_component
Synonyms
TEM, membrane tetraspanin-enriched microdomain
Definition
A pre-organized unit composed either of adhesion molecules (mainly integrins and members of the Ig superfamily), signaling receptors and/or enzyme-enriched plasma membrane domains that compartmentalizes cellular processes. Tetraspanin-enriched microdomains might be specially suited for the regulation of avidity of adhesion receptors and the compartmentalization of enzymatic activities.
