metanephric collecting duct development Gene Set

Dataset GO Biological Process Annotations
Category structural or functional annotations
Type biological process
Description The process whose specific outcome is the progression of a collecting duct in the metanephros over time, from its formation to the mature structure. The collecting duct responds to vasopressin and aldosterone to regulate water, electrolyte and acid-base balance. The collecting duct is the final common path through which urine flows before entering the ureter and then emptying into the bladder. (Gene Ontology, GO_0072205)
