Tissue Summary: urothelium of bladder (TS22-TS28)
urothelium of bladder Description
The inner layer of the bladder, in contact with the urine, is composed of urothelial cells. These cells form a multi-layered epithelium, called a urothelium, impermeable to the urine and able to adapt to the tension changes of the bladder.

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.
