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 seminal vesicle development
go back to main search page
Accession:MP:0013317 term browser browse the term
Definition:aberrant or incomplete differentiation of either of the paired sac-like glandular structures situated posterolateral to the urinary bladder in the male and functioning as part of the reproductive system; seminal vesicles develop from the segments of the Wolffian ducts immediately adjacent to the urogenital sinus
Comment:The seminal vesicles are present as branched organs in many mammals including mice and humans. However, the seminal vesicles are completely absent from some mammals including monotremes, marsupials, carnivores, and cetaceans. In addition, the seminal vesicles in some mammals such as the guinea-pig are present as unbranched tubular glands.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: abnormal gonecyst development;   abnormal seminal gland development;   gonecyst dysgenesis;   seminal gland dysgenesis;   seminal vesicle dysgenesis
