GO:0042734 presynaptic membrane

Term Information

ID GO:0042734
Name presynaptic membrane
Ontology Cellular Component
Definition A specialized area of membrane of the axon terminal that faces the plasma membrane of the neuron or muscle fiber with which the axon terminal establishes a synaptic junction; many synaptic junctions exhibit structural presynaptic characteristics, such as conical, electron-dense internal protrusions, that distinguish it from the remainder of the axon plasma membrane.
