Capsule outer layer – dense CT fibroblasts and collagen inner layer – myofibroblasts. External Links Notice – The dynamic nature urogehital the internet may mean that some of these listed links may no longer function. The endothelial cell coats the inner surface of the capillary wall and is followed by the three layers of the glomerular basement membrane GBM.

Detrusor Muscle The adult detrusor muscle consists of three layers of smooth involuntary muscle fibres. The slit-diaphram can be discerned in between the foot processs. In humans, this very rudimentary kidney forms very early at the level of the neck. This page was last modified on 30 Augustat Can be described anatomically by its 4 layers from inside outward: Google Translate – select your language from the list shown below this will open a new external page.

PubMed Barry Brenner capillary loop – C stage The third stage in nephron development between weeks. In humans, the urethral length differs between the sexes male longer, female shorter.

Podocytes form the visceral layer of Bowman’s capsule and are at the filtration barrier between capillary blood and the nephron tubular system and function to ultrafiltrate blood, and support glomerular capillary pressures. Named after Caspar Friedrich Wolffa German scientist and early embryology researcher and is said to have established the doctrine of germ layers.


They develop from the ureteric bud and are lined by a transitional epithelium with an outer muscular wall. The ureter is composed of three layers: If the link no longer works search the web with the link text or name.

Renal System Histology – Embryology

It is rapidly replaced by the mesonephros, intermediate stage kidney, differentiating in mesoderm beneath. Cytoplasm form a fenestrated epithelium around the fenestrated capillaries of the glomerulus. Renal System Histology From Embryology. Nephron Functional unit of kidney Humans up to 1 million Filtration of waste from blood Endocrine Blood pressure regulation.

V – S – C – M diabetes insipidus – The disorder is related to the hormone antidiuretic hormone ADH, also called vasopressin its synthesis, secretion, receptors and signaling pathway. In females this duct degenerates some remnants may remain associated in broad ligament. Muscular – the detrusor muscle is the muscle of the urinary bladder wall.

Submucosa – connects the muscular layer with the mucous layer. Brenner hypothesis – a clinical hypothesis that states, individuals with a congenital reduction in nephron number have a much greater likelihood of developing adult hypertension and subsequent renal failure.

This is non-familial and is produced by atresia of a ureter and is always unilateral. The differentiation of podocytes involves the formation of cellular foot processes and then the slit membrane.

Renal System Histology

Note that while the smooth muscle fibre layer organisation is described as longitudinal or circular, this is only a general organisation of fibre direction, and is better described as a “spiral” organisation.


The adult ureter is a thick-walled muscular tube, 25 – 30 cm in length, running from the kidney to the urinary bladder. The outer layer is the parietal layer. Wilm’s tumour Bowman’s capsule – capsula glomeruli, glomerular capsule Surrounds the glomerulus within the nephron histolgoi a vascular and urinary pole and is the beginning of the tubular component. In males, the mesonephric tubules go on to form the ducts of the testis.

V – S – C – M mesangial cells – Cells in the nephron glomerulus that form the connective tissue giving structural support to podocytes and vessels. Anatomically can be described in two parts the abdominal part pars abdominalis and pelvic part pars pelvina.

The rests are further characterised by the time of generation leading to different anatomical kidney locations: Moodle – Virtual Slides requires Moodle log in. This leads to a grossly dilated renal pelvis causing extensive renal damage before birth. This forms the kidney of primitive fish and lower vertebrates. Kidney development occurs within the intermediate mesoderm interacting with endoderm.

In females, these degenerate. Privacy policy About Embryology Disclaimers. V – S – C – M urinary – Term used to describe all components of the kidney system including the bladder, ureters and urethra.

A few mesonephric tubules remain as efferent ductules in the male and vestigial remnants in the female.
