Mucosa – mucus layer a transitional epithelium layer formed into folds rugae. A few mesonephric tubules remain as efferent ductules in the male and vestigial remnants in the female. 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. Named in after Sir William Bowman — an English surgeon and anatomist.

This forms the kidney of primitive fish and lower vertebrates. In males, the mesonephric tubules go on to form the ducts of the testis.

This section of notes gives an overview mainly of adult renal histology, see also Renal System Development notes.


The rests are further characterised by the time of generation leading to different anatomical kidney locations: Muscular – the detrusor muscle is the muscle of the urinary bladder wall.

Submucosa – connects the muscular layer with the mucous layer. This page was last modified on 30 Augustat Wilm’s tumour Bowman’s capsule – capsula glomeruli, glomerular capsule Surrounds the glomerulus within the nephron with a vascular and urinary pole and is the beginning of the tubular component.

It is rapidly replaced by the mesonephros, intermediate stage kidney, differentiating in mesoderm beneath.

The differentiation of podocytes involves the formation of cellular foot processes and then the slit membrane. 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.

The ureter is composed of three layers: Named after Caspar Friedrich Wolffa German scientist and early embryology researcher and is said to have established the doctrine of germ layers. Privacy policy About Embryology Disclaimers. In humans, the urethral length differs between the hidtologi male longer, female shorter.

Region also in close contact with the efferent and afferent arterioles of the glomerulus and involved in sodium chloride regulation. The intermediate mesonephros develops and disappears with the exception of its duct, the mesonephric ductwhich will form the male reproductive duct system.

The slit-diaphram can be discerned in between the foot processs. Links to any external commercial sites are provided for information purposes only and should never be considered an endorsement. The endothelial cell coats the inner surface of the capillary wall and is followed by the three layers of the glomerular basement membrane GBM.


Serous – the superior or abdominal surfaces and the lateral” surfaces of the bladder are covered by visceral peritoneum, the serous membrane serosa of the abdominal cavity, consisting of mesthelium and elastic fibrous connective tissue.

Transmission electron micrscopy of a mouse glomerular capillary revealing the structural composition of the glomerulus. In humans, this very rudimentary kidney forms very early at the level of the neck.

PubMed Barry Brenner capillary loop – C stage The third stage in nephron development between weeks. Mouse renal podocyte EM [1].

On the outside of the capillary, the foot processes FP cover a major part of the glomerular basement membrane GBM circumference.

Capsule outer layer – dense CT fibroblasts and collagen inner layer – myofibroblasts. In females, these degenerate. UNSW Embryology is provided as an educational resource with no clinical information or commercial affiliation.

The outer layer is the parietal layer. 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.
