Phenotype: CaP motoneuron axon present in fewer numbers in organism, abnormal
Note: This statement combines anatomy and/or ontology terms with phenotype quality terms to create a complete phenotype (EQ) statement. For detailed information on individual terms, click the hyperlinked term name.
Name: CaP motoneuron
Synonyms: CAP motoneurons, caudal primary motoneuron
Definition: A primary motor neuron part of the spinal cord. The CaP motoneuron is found within 1 soma diameter of the ventral root. The axon of the CaP motoneuron extends ventrally from the ventral root, within the space between the notochord and the medial surface of the axial muscles. Below the notochord, the axon extends within the ventral median septum to the ventral edge of the axial muscles, where it turns dorsally and laterally to project over the lateral surface of the axial muscles.
Ontology: Anatomy Ontology [ZFA:0009243]
Name: axon
Synonyms:
Definition: The long process of a neuron that conducts nerve impulses, usually away from the cell body to the terminals and varicosities, which are sites of storage and release of neurotransmitter.
Ontology: GO: Cellular Component [GO:0030424]   QuickGO   AmiGO
Name: present in fewer numbers in organism
Synonyms: decreased, decreased amount, decreased number, reduced, subnumerary
Definition: An amount which is relatively low.
