active zone
Site of transmitter release on presynaptic terminal at chemical synapses. At the neuromuscular junction active zones are located directly across the synaptic cleft from clusters of acetylcholine receptors. Evidence from conotoxin binding studies suggests that presynaptic calcium channelsare exclusively localized at active zones.
