GO term:axon terminus
Synonym: axon terminal
Synonym: axon terminal specialization
Synonym: motor endplate
Synonym: nerve ending
GO id:GO:0043679
Definition:Terminal inflated portion of the axon, containing the specialized apparatus necessary to release neurotransmitters. The axon terminus is considered to be the whole region of thickening and the terminal button is a specialized region of it.
