Tissue Summary: ureter (TS20-TS28)
The ureter is an epithelial lined tube which drains the urine from the metanephros, where it is produced, into the bladder, where it is stored before excretion. It is composed of an inner urothelium surrounded by smooth muscle and interstitial, mesenchymal support cells.

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.
Currently no defined marker genes for this component
