Term Detail
GO term:caveola
Synonym: caveolae
Synonym: caveolar membrane
GO id:GO:0005901
Alternate id: GO:0016599
Definition:A membrane raft that forms small pit, depression, or invagination that communicates with the outside of a cell and extends inward, indenting the cytoplasm and the cell membrane. Examples include any of the minute pits or incuppings of the cell membrane formed during pinocytosis. Such caveolae may be pinched off to form free vesicles within the cytoplasm.
Number of paths to term: 27
