MAMMALIAN PHENOTYPE - ANNOTATIONS

The Mouse Adult Gross Anatomy Ontology and Mammalian Phenotype Ontology are downloaded weekly from the Mouse Genome Informatics databases at Jackson Laboratories (ftp://ftp.informatics.jax.org/pub/reports/index.html).

Term:abnormal testis cord formation
go back to main search page
Accession:MP:0006418 term browser browse the term
Definition:any structural anomaly in the formation of the attachments derived from the primordial seminiferous cords that differentiate into seminiferous tubules in adolescence; defective testis cord formation is most likely to reflect abnormal function of either Sertoli cells or peritubular myoid (PTM) cells which normally cooperate to deposit a layer of basal lamina that defines the edges of individual testis cords
Synonyms:exact_synonym: abnormal seminiferous cords;   abnormal testis cords
 narrow_synonym: defective testis cord formation;   impaired testis cord differentiation;   incomplete testis cord development
