GO:0016081 synaptic vesicle docking

Term Information

ID GO:0016081
Name synaptic vesicle docking
Ontology Biological Process
Definition The initial (indirect) attachment of a synaptic vesicle membrane to the presynaptic active zone membrane, mediated by proteins protruding from the membrane and proteins of the presynaptic active zone cytoplasmic component. Synaptic vesicle tethering is the first step in this process.
PMID:15217342
Comment Although this process can occur outside of synaptic transmission, by convention we treat it as a part of synaptic transmission (dos, pvn, fk synapse project 2015).
