|Development of the Trigone Region of the Urinary Bladder
The dorsal bladder region bounded by the 2 ureters and the urethra form the region known as the trigone. The classical embryology description of the origin of this region was from the mesonephric duct (Wolffian duct), as shown in this animation. The current understanding is that the region is entirely endoderm in origin.
More recent mouse studies suggest that this bladder region is endodermal and not mesodermal in origin. Using a similar mouse model, this trigone embryonic region appears to contain most of the bladder progenitor cells. Any mesonephric duct (Wolffian duct) located in the mouse trigone region appears to be developmentally lost by apoptosis.
In contrast, the prostatic central zone, seminal vesicle, and ejaculatory ducts all originate from the mesonephric duct (Wolffian duct).
