Tissue Summary: mesonephros of female (TS20-TS23)
mesonephros of female description
The female mesonephros is composed mainly of mesonephric mesenchyme with numerous mesonephric tubules, either connected to the nephric duct (cranial) or not (caudal). At around 12.5 dpc the paramesonephric duct (or Mullerian duct) arises at the rostral tip of the mesonephros and extends caudally along the nephric duct during development. In females the nephric duct and mesonephric tubules degenerate, and the paramesonephric duct gives rise to the oviducts, uterus and upper part of the vagina.

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.
