synaptic vesicle endocytosis Gene Set

Dataset GO Biological Process Annotations
Category structural or functional annotations
Type biological process
Description An endocytosis process that results in the invagination of the axonal plasma membrane to create a membrane-bounded vesicle. This process takes up excess membrane that would otherwise accumulate at the presynaptic terminal due to fusion of vesicle membranes during neurotransmitter release. The vesicles created may subsequently be used for neurotransmitter storage and release. (Gene Ontology, GO_0048488)
