Term Detail
MP term:abnormal podocyte morphology
Synonym: abnormal glomerular epithelial cells
Synonym: abnormal podocytes
Synonym: abnormal visceral epithelial cell
MP id: MP:0005326
Definition: any structural anomaly of a modified epithelial cell of the visceral layer of the Bowman capsule in the renal corpuscle; it has a small perikaryon and a number of primary and secondary foot processes that interdigitate with those of other podocytes and are attached to the outer surface of the glomerular capillary basement membrane
