Term Detail
GO term:extrinsic component of membrane
Synonym: extrinsic to membrane
Synonym: peripheral membrane protein
GO id:GO:0019898
Alternate id: GO:0030396
Definition:The component of a membrane consisting of gene products and protein complexes that are loosely bound to one of its surfaces, but not integrated into the hydrophobic region.
CommentsNote that proteins extrinsic to membranes can be removed by treatments that do not disrupt the membrane, such as salt solutions.
