A capillary tuft which forms a close network with the visceral epithelium (podocytes) and the mesangium to form the filtration barrier and is surrounded by Bowman's capsule in nephrons of the vertebrate kidney[GO]. [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glomerulus MP : 0005325 ]

external ontology notes
  • ZFA - The multi-tissue structure where the glomerular basement membrane supported by mesonephric podocytes filters blood from the glomerular capillaries. GUDMAP: 'Together, the Bowman's capsule and the glomerulus comprise the definitive renal corpuscle.' - here the glomerulus is part of the capsule?
