What is the name of the component outlined in red in the image, that seats the head of the brake cable?

Criggie - The one on the opposite STI to the one in the picture came without the white plastic ends. Cable can still be seated with just the middle part of the cable hook, but not as intended.– user34810Nov 1, 2017 at 20:31
This part is officially called "cable hook" and "cable hook unit" in Shimano docs. See attached image (I won't link it because the PDF is not hosted by Shimano) and this document (page 7).
It is indeed called a Cable Hook, and can be bought here: https://www.sjscycles.co.uk/gear-spares/shimano-str700-cable-hook-unit-6cu-9805/
Good finding. Do you have any affiliation or association with that site? If so, SE rules require you to say so clearly.– Criggie ♦Oct 24, 2017 at 18:43
@Criggie No affiliation at all. I have shopped there a few times, they are my go-to shop for obscure bike parts. Oct 26, 2017 at 7:40
