Quick Reference

A relatively dense and thickened region of presynaptic membrane within a synapse where synaptic vesicles fuse with the membrane to release neurotransmitter from the neuron into the synaptic cleft. Active zones contain specific proteins (see SNARE), are highly structured, and appear darker than neighbouring regions on electron microscopy.
