The lining of the majority of the urethral groove is believed to form from the urethral plate (which subsequently separates from the surface to form all but the most distal part of the penile urethra), and is endodermal. However, its most distal part (in the region of the glans penis) is formed from an ectodermal ingrowth. (moreā€¦)
