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).

Term:abnormal prostate gland anterior lobe morphology

Accession:MP:0001163 term browser browse the term
Definition:any structural anomaly of the rodent prostate lobe that appears as a thin tubular structure, attached to the lesser curvature of the paired seminal vesicles
Comment:In rodents, the prostate gland consists of three lobes, the anterior prostate (AP; also known as the coagulating gland), the dorsolateral prostate (DLP), and the ventral prostate (VP). These lobes are arranged circumferentially around the urethra and display characteristic patterns of ductal branching and protein secretion (PMID:3308446). In contrast, the adult human prostate lacks discernible lobular organization and, instead, completely envelops the urethra at the base of the bladder (PMID:3308446).
Synonyms:exact_synonym: abnormal AP morphology;   abnormal CG morphology;   abnormal anterior prostate morphology;   abnormal coagulating gland morphology
