CROSS-SPECIES ANATOMY - ANNOTATIONS

The Basic subset of the UBERON integrated, cross-species anatomy ontology is downloaded weekly from http://berkeleybop.org/ontologies/uberon/basic.obo. For more information about this ontology see the "About" page on the UBERON website at http://uberon.github.io/about.html.

Term:capsule

Accession:UBERON:0003893 term browser browse the term
Definition:A cover or envelope partly or wholly surrounding a structure. Examples: egg shell, articular capsules, renal capsules[WP].
Comment:see also: protective structure surrounding some species of bacteria and fungi. Note that FMA has classes such as Articular capsule that are not subtypes of Capsule (which is undefined in FMA). GO has 'capsule' which is a fungal structure, and 'external encapsulating structure' which is restricted to cells
Synonyms:xref: EHDAA:4739;   EHDAA:9061;   FMA:85272;   Wikipedia:Capsule_(anatomy);   galen:Capsule
