Term Detail
GO term:basement membrane
GO id:GO:0005604
Definition:A thin layer of dense material found in various animal tissues interposed between the cells and the adjacent connective tissue. It consists of the basal lamina plus an associated layer of reticulin fibers.
CommentsNote that this term has no relationship to 'membrane ; GO:0016020' because the basement membrane is not a lipid bilayer.
Number of paths to term: 8
