Term Detail
GO term:neuronal cell body
Synonym: neuronal cell soma
Synonym: neuron cell body
GO id:GO:0043025
Definition:The portion of a neuron that includes the nucleus, but excludes cell projections such as axons and dendrites.
CommentsNote that 'cell body' and 'cell soma' are not used in the literature for cells that lack projections, nor for some cells (e.g. yeast with mating projections) that do have projections.
Number of paths to term: 6
