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:decreased trachea gland number
go back to main search page
Accession:MP:0013495 term browser browse the term
Definition:fewer than normal numbers of the tubuloacinar seromucous glands which are principally located in the submucosa of the trachea, open into the tracheal lumen through short ducts, and secrete mucus, lysozyme, defensins, and other agents that help protect the lungs from particles and infectious agents; in the mouse, they are restricted to the upper trachea, more specifically to the regions between the first few cartilage rings, with the precise distribution depending on genetic background
Synonyms:exact_synonym: decreased glandula trachealis number;   decreased glandulae tracheales number;   decreased trachea submucosal gland number;   decreased tracheal gland number;   reduced glandula trachealis number;   reduced glandulae tracheales number;   reduced trachea submucosal gland number;   reduced tracheal gland number
