Mouse cloacal septation
Time-line of normal cloacal partitioning in the mouse.
- E10 - the ventral part of the cloaca (cl) extends rostrally to give rise to the embryonic urogenital sinus and the primordium of the bladder (bl).
- E12 - Bmp7 expression appears in the dorsal genital mesenchyme (gm).
- E14 - Bmp7 expression in the URM shifts to the ventral portion of the genital tubercle (dashed arrow).
blue - Domains of Bmp7 expression in the urorectal mesenchyme (URM), urethral plate (up), and genital ectoderm (ge).
green - Cloacal endoderm.
rectum (r) and anus (an) urethra (ur) cloacal membrane (clm).
