Tissue Summary: s-shaped body (TS21-TS27)
s-shaped body Description
The comma-shaped body elongates, folds and acquires an S shape. The S-shaped nephron, connected to the ureteric tip via a renal connecting tubule, has differentiated into additional molecular regions and can be further subdivided into proximal, medial and distal segments.

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.
