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.

Definition:The microvilli-covered surface of simple cuboidal epithelium and simple columnar epithelium cells found in certain locations of the body; mainly in the small an large intestines and kidneys.
Comment:Note - this anatomical structure differs from the cellular component GO_0005903 brush border (defined as: the dense covering of microvilli on the apical surface of a epithelial cells in tissues such as the intestine, kidney, and choroid plexus; the microvilli aid absorption by increasing the surface area of the cell).
Synonyms:related_synonym: brush border;   brush border membrane
