presynaptic cytoskeletal matrix assembled at active zones Gene Set

Dataset GO Cellular Component Annotations
Category structural or functional annotations
Type cellular component
Description The specialized cytoskeletal matrix assembled at the active zones of the presynaptic nerve terminal. The cytoskeletal matrix is a proteinaceous structure involved in organizing synaptic events such as immobilisation or translocation of synaptic vesicles, and assembling active zone components. The cytomatrix protein exclusively assembled at active zones, is thought to form a molecular scaffold that organizes neurotransmitter release sites. (Gene Ontology, GO_0048788)
