Accession
GO:0007269
Name
neurotransmitter secretion
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
neurotransmitter release, neurotransmitter secretory pathway
Alternate IDs
GO:0010554
Definition
The regulated release of neurotransmitter from the presynapse into the synaptic cleft via calcium-regulated exocytosis during synaptic transmission. Source: GOC:dph
Comment
A neurotransmitter is any of a group of substances that are released on excitation from the axon terminal of a presynaptic neuron of the central or peripheral nervous system and travel across the synaptic cleft to either excite or inhibit the target cell. Among the many substances that have the properties of a neurotransmitter are acetylcholine, noradrenaline, adrenaline, dopamine, glycine, gamma-aminobutyrate, glutamic acid, substance P, enkephalins, endorphins and serotonin.
