Tissue Summary: visceral epithelium (TS21-TS28)
visceral epithelium description
The visceral epithelium, also called the podocyte layer, is the inner epithelium of the renal corpuscle in direct contact with the blood capillaries of the glomerulus. The podocytes, cells specialised in blood filtration, form this epithelium.

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.

|Tdrd5||MGI:2684949||visceral epithelium of maturing renal corpuscle (EMAPA:27967)||TS23||maturing renal corpuscle (EMAPA:27943)||GUDMAP:9106||Thiagarajan et al. (2011)|
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.
