Mouse Bladder Tissue - 40x

Mouse Bladder Tissue

The digital image above is a reconstruction of thick optical sections of mouse bladder tissue imaged at 40x. In addition to the detrusor muscle layer, the bladder wall features both mucosa and submucosa strata. The submucosa consists of loose connective tissue and elastic fibers. Within this layer, blood vessels, nerves, and in some areas, glands, can be found. In contrast, the mucosa, which is impervious to urine, does not contain any blood vessels or lymphatic vessels. The mucosa of the bladder is continuous with that of the urethra and the ureters.
