MAMMALIAN PHENOTYPE - ANNOTATIONS

The Mouse Adult Gross Anatomy Ontology and Mammalian Phenotype Ontology are downloaded weekly from the Mouse Genome Informatics databases at Jackson Laboratories (ftp://ftp.informatics.jax.org/pub/reports/index.html).

Accession:MP:0000675 term browser browse the term
Definition:any structural anomaly of the coiled tubular glands situated on the digits and footpads of the paws of rodents, and both in the histologically thick skin of the palmar and plantar surfaces and in the thin skin that covers most of the rest of the body in humans; in mice these are the only sweat glands present
Comment:The palmar and plantar eccrine glands of rodents are thought to provide enhanced tactile sensitivity rather than serving the thermoregulatory role ascribed to eccrine glands of the thin skin in humans.
Synonyms:narrow_synonym: abnormal palmar eccrine gland morphology;   abnormal palmar eccrine glands;   abnormal palmar sweat gland morphology;   abnormal palmar sweat glands;   palmar eccrine gland dysplasia
