Term Information

Accession
GO:0014069
Name
postsynaptic density
Ontology
cellular_component
Synonyms
neuronal postsynaptic density, post synaptic density, post-synaptic density, postsynaptic density of dendrite
Alternate IDs
GO:0097483, GO:0097481
Definition
An electron dense network of proteins within and adjacent to the postsynaptic membrane of an asymmetric, neuron-neuron synapse. Its major components include neurotransmitter receptors and the proteins that spatially and functionally organize them such as anchoring and scaffolding molecules, signaling enzymes and cytoskeletal components.
