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). For more information about these ontologies, see the MGI Publications Page at http://www.informatics.jax.org/mgihome/other/publications.shtml.

Term:abnormal peritubular myoid cell morphology
go back to main search page
Accession:MP:0006420 term browser browse the term
Definition:any structural anomaly of the flattened smooth myoepithelial cells of mesodermal origin that lie just outside the basal lamina of the seminiferous tubule
Comment:During testis cord differentiation, PTM cells surround the testis cord, separating it from the peritubular space and contributing to the production of the basal lamina.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: abnormal PTM cells;   abnormal peritubular contractile cells
