Descriptor segmento inicial del axón
Entry term(s) cono axonal
zona de activación axonal
Scope note: Primer segmento del axón que conecta los segmentos distales axonales con el CUERPO CELULAR de la neurona en la región del cono axonal. El segmento inicial del axón no se encuentra protegido por la VAINA DE MIELINA y tiene propiedades críticas para el crecimiento axonal. El segmento inicial del axón y el cono axonal forman una zona activadora axonal.

Scope note: First segment of axon that connects distal axon segments to the neuronal CELL BODY at the axon hillock region. The axon initial segment is not protected by the MYELIN SHEATH and has properties critical for axonal growth. The axon initial segment and the axon hillock form an axonal trigger zone.
