GO term:axoneme
Synonym: ciliary axoneme
Synonym: cilium axoneme
Synonym: flagellar axoneme
Synonym: flagellum axoneme
GO id:GO:0005930
Alternate id: GO:0035086, GO:0035085
Definition:The bundle of microtubules and associated proteins that forms the core of cilia (also called flagella) in eukaryotic cells and is responsible for their movements.
CommentsNote that cilia and eukaryotic flagella are deemed to be equivalent. In Diplomonads species such as Giardia, the axoneme may extend intracellularly up to 5um away from the plane of the plasma membrane.
Number of paths to term: 18
