Name: ciliary transition zone
Synonyms: cilial transition zone, cilium transition zone, connecting cilium
Definition: A region of the cilium between the basal body and proximal segment that is characterized by Y-shaped assemblages that connect axonemal microtubules to the ciliary membrane. The ciliary transition zone appears to function as a gate that controls ciliary membrane composition and separates the cytosol from the ciliary plasm.
