renal vesicle Description
The pretubular aggregate enlarges and begins to differentiate into the renal vesicle; an immature epithelial nephron structure with a central lumen and partial basement membrane, the first recognised structural nephron stage.

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.

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.
