Dataset MPO Gene-Phenotype Associations
Category disease or phenotype associations
Type phenotype
Description reduction in the number of the corpuscular, organoid structures composed of PNECs, found as distinctive innervated clusters only within intrapulmonary airways, where they appear concentrated at airway branch points; NEBs reach from the basement membrane to the airway lumen and are thought to function as oxygen sensors (Mammalian Phenotype Ontology, MP_0010920)
