Tissue Summary: pelvic ganglion (TS20-TS28)
pelvic ganglion description
The pelvic ganglia provide autonomic innervation to the organs of the genitourinary system and lower bowel and are comprised of both sympathetic and parasympathetic neurons. In the mouse they are paired, morphologically discrete, major ganglia in the pelvic region positioned on either side of the urethra where the urethra enters the bladder neck. The pelvic ganglia are derived from the sacral neural crest progenitors that migrate ventrally from the level of somites X-Y ventrally into the urogenital sinus where they form aggregates between the hind gut and the urogenital sinus during organogenesis. In the GUDMAP database, the pelvic ganglia are considered part of the genitourinary system, although some of the sympathetic and parasympathetic neurons project instead to the lower bowel.

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
