connected anatomical structure

The Planarian Anatomoy Ontology (PLANA) is a collection of terms curated from the literature and other organism anatomy ontologies to describe anatomical features, life cycle stages and developmental processes in the regenerative flatworm Schmidtea mediterranea. The latest version of the PLANA Ontology is available through the Open Biological and Biomedical Ontology Foundry (OBO) . PLANA Ontology terms are searchable at the EMBL-EBI Ontology Lookup Service (OLS) and the PLANA Ontology Terms Page.

The Overview Section is populated with infomration from the OLS.




Planarian Anatomy Ontology Term Overview


NAME:

  connected anatomical structure


DEFINITON:

  Material anatomical entity that is a single connected structure with inherent 3D shape generated by coordinated expression of the organism's own genome.


TERM ID:

  CARO:0000003


ABOUT THIS TERM:

  connected anatomical structure "is a" material anatomical entity


  , native cell, cellular organism, extraembryonic structure, multicellular anatomical structure, cell, cell part and cellular organisms "is a" connected anatomical structure


COMMENTS:

Note that the definition does not say 'generated exclusively by the co-ordinated expression of the organism's own genome', so this is still valid for cases where normal morphogenesis requires the actions of a facultative symbiont, or some looser dependency such as the a requirement for the presence of gut flora for normal gut development.
