Subcellular locations Results

Subcellular location
Apical cell membrane

The fraction of the cell membrane at the apical end of the cell, which faces the outside world or the lumen of the cavity.

Category: Cellular component

Apicolateral cell membrane

The fraction of the cell membrane at the apical end of the lateral plasma membrane of the cell.

Category: Cellular component

Basal cell membrane

The basal cell membrane is the fraction of the plasma membrane at the basal side of the cell, which faces the underlying connective tissue.

Category: Cellular component

Basolateral cell membrane

The basolateral cell membrane is the fraction of the plasma membrane at the basolateral side of the cell, which faces adjacent cells and the underlying connective tissue.

Category: Cellular component

Cell membrane

The cell membrane is the selectively permeable membrane which separates the cytoplasm from its surroundings. Known as the cell inner membrane in prokaryotes with 2 membranes.

Category: Cellular component

Host apical cell membrane

The fraction of the host cell membrane at the apical end of the host cell, which faces the outside world or the lumen of the host cavity.

Category: Cellular component

Host basolateral cell membrane

The fraction of the host cell membrane at the basolateral side of the cell, which faces adjacent host cells and the underlying host connective tissue.

Category: Cellular component

Host cell membrane

The host cell membrane is the selectively permeable membrane which separates the host cytoplasm from its surroundings. Known as the host cell inner membrane in prokaryotes with 2 membranes.

Category: Cellular component

Host presynaptic cell membrane

In a host chemical synapse, the host presynaptic membrane is the cell membrane of an axon terminal that faces the receiving cell. The postsynaptic membrane is separated from the presynaptic membrane by the synaptic cleft.

Category: Cellular component

Lateral cell membrane

The portion of the plasma membrane at the lateral side of the cell.

Category: Cellular component

Postsynaptic cell membrane

In a chemical synapse, specialized area of the membrane that receives a signal (binds neurotransmitter) from the presynaptic cell and responds via depolarization or hyperpolarization. The postsynaptic membrane is separated from the presynaptic membrane by the synaptic cleft.

Category: Cellular component

Presynaptic cell membrane

In a chemical synapse, the presynaptic membrane is the cell membrane of an axon terminal that faces the receiving cell. The postsynaptic membrane is separated from the presynaptic membrane by the synaptic cleft.

Category: Cellular component

Synaptic cell membrane

A specialized area of membrane on either the presynaptic or the postsynaptic side of a synapse, the junction between a nerve fiber of one neuron and another neuron or muscle fiber or glial cell.

Category: Cellular component

Target cell membrane

The target cell membrane is the selectively permeable membrane which separates the target cell cytoplasm from its surroundings. This term is used to describe a toxin located to the cell membrane of a target cell.
