DAG for GO:0032420id: GO:0032420

name: stereocilium
namespace: cellular_component
def: "An actin-based protrusion from the apical surface of auditory and vestibular hair cells and of neuromast cells. These protrusions are supported by a bundle of cross-linked actin filaments (an actin cable), oriented such that the plus (barbed) ends are at the tip of the protrusion, capped by a tip complex which bridges to the plasma. Bundles of stereocilia act as mechanosensory organelles." [GOC:ecd, PMID:15661519, PMID:7840137]
