Term Detail
GO term:postsynaptic density
Synonym: neuronal postsynaptic density
Synonym: post synaptic density
Synonym: post-synaptic density
GO id:GO:0014069
Alternate id: GO:0097483, GO:0097481
Definition:An electron dense network of proteins within and adjacent to the postsynaptic membrane in asymetric synapses. Its major components include neurotransmitter receptors and the proteins that spatially and functionally organize them such as anchoring and scaffolding molecules, signaling enzymes and cytoskeletal components.
Number of paths to term: 11
