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). For more information about these ontologies, see the MGI Publications Page at http://www.informatics.jax.org/mgihome/other/publications.shtml.

Term:abnormal ultimobranchial body morphology

Accession:MP:0003955 term browser browse the term
Definition:any structural anomaly of the outpocketing of the caudal-most branchial pouch of the embryo (interpreted as a fifth pouch in human or as the ventral component of the fourth pouch in mouse) that fuses with the thyroid diverticulum, ultimately giving rise to calcitonin-producing parafollicular cells (aka C-cells) which function in calcium homeostasis; in most mammals, these parafollicular cells fully disperse with the endodermally derived follicular cells of the thyroid by birth
Synonyms:exact_synonym: abnormal corpus ultimopharyngeum morphology;   abnormal postbranchial body morphology;   abnormal telobranchial body morphology;   abnormal telopharyngeal body morphology;   abnormal ultimobranchial gland morphology;   abnormal ultimopharyngeal body morphology;   abnormal ultimopharyngeal gland morphology
