Tissue Summary: metanephric mesenchyme (TS17-TS19)
metanephric mesenchyme Description
The metanephric mesenchyme is located dorsal and immediately adjacent to the caudal end of the nephric (or Wolffian) duct. During development, through the process of nephrogenesis, this mesenchyme will give rise to the nephrons of the metanephros.

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.
