Tissue Summary: prostate gland (TS24-TS28)
prostate gland description
The prostate gland develops from the urethral epithelium in the anterior pelvic urethra. The adult mouse prostate is positioned at the bladder-urethra junction an surrounds the prostatic urethra and ejaculaory ducts. Unlike the human prostate which is bounded distally by a thick fibromuscular capsule and divided into anatomical zones, the mouse prostate is subdivided into four bilaterally symmetrical regions (historically known as lobes); anterior, dorsal, lateral and ventral. The prostate gland differentiates from numerous epithelial prostate buds, which develop from the cloacal endoderm-derived epithelium in distinct locations.

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.
