Term Detail
MP term:abnormal renal glomerulus basement membrane morphology
Synonym: abnormal GBM morphology
Synonym: abnormal glomerular basement membrane morphology
Synonym: abnormal glomerulus basement membrane morphology
Synonym: abnormal kidney glomerulus basement membrane morphology
MP id: MP:0011348
Definition: any structural anomaly of the layer of extracellular matrix that lies between the endothelium of the glomerular capillaries and the podocytes of the inner or visceral layer of the Bowman capsule; it is a fusion of the endothelial cell and podocyte basal laminas and acts as a physical barrier and an ion-selective filter
