renal system 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 the renal system over time, from its formation to the mature structure. The renal system maintains fluid balance and contributes to electrolyte balance, acid/base balance, and disposal of nitrogenous waste products. In humans, the renal system comprises a pair of kidneys, a pair of ureters, urinary bladder, urethra, sphincter muscle and associated blood vessels. (Gene Ontology, GO_0072001)
