CLINICAL MEASUREMENT - ANNOTATIONS

The Clinical Measurement Ontology (CMO), Measurement Methods Ontology (MMO), and Experimental Condition Ontology (XCO) are currently being developed at the Rat Genome Database. For more information about these vocabularies please see Shimoyama et al. Three ontologies to define phenotype measurement data. Front Genet. 2012;3:87.

Definition:A calculated measurement in which the area occupied by renal protein casts is divided by the total, combined area of the outer stripe of the kidney outer medulla and the kidney cortex, and the result presented as a ratio, fraction, quotient or percentage. Renal protein casts are gelled proteins precipitated in the renal tubules and molded to the tubular lumen. The medulla outer stripe is the section of the renal medula adjacent to the renal cortex and contains portions of the nephron, including the straight proximal tubules, and portions of the loops of henle and outer medullary collecting ducts.
Synonyms:related_synonym: percent area of renal protein casting
