asymmetric synapse Gene Set

Dataset GO Cellular Component Annotations
Category structural or functional annotations
Type cellular component
Description A type of synapse occurring between an axon and a dendritic spine or dendritic shaft. Asymmetric synapses, the most abundant synapse type in the central nervous system, involve axons that contain predominantly spherical vesicles and contain a thickened postsynaptic density.
