Tissue Summary: comma-shaped body (TS20-TS27)
comma-shaped body description
The renal vesicle grows and differentiates further and changes morphology. The proximal portion elongates and a cleft appears, giving it a comma shape. The comma-shaped body is a transitional nephron stage and is subdivided into connecting segment and distal and proximal segments (upper and lower limb respectively).

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.

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.
