Origin of mesonephros
Examples from the Web for mesonephros
The pronephros is distinguished from the mesonephros by developmental as well as structural features.
The differentiation of a posterior section of the mesonephros into a special gland foreshadowing the metanephros of the Amniota.
The anterior portion of the mesonephros is much reduced in size in correlation with the fact that it has lost its renal function.
While the lumen is gradually being formed, the segmental tubes of the mesonephros become established.
The mesonephros of the larva disappears, and a fresh posterior part is formed.
