Tissue Summary: cap mesenchyme (TS19-TS28)
cap mesenchyme Description
Condensed mesenchymal cells located around the tips of the ureteric bud tree. A complex communication between the tip and these cells will induce the cap mesenchyme which begins nephrogenesis.

In Situ Data
Validated Anchor/Marker Genes
Anchor genes are defined as genes whose expression is restricted to one temporospatial anatomical compartment. These have been selected by microarray analyses followed by validation using section in-situ hybridisation.
Currently no defined anchor genes for this component
Marker genes are defined as genes which display a regional or enriched expression pattern and may be useful in identifying one or more particular temporospatial compartment(s). These have been selected by microarray analyses followed by validation using section in-situ hybridisation.
