Requires attention:

id: UBERON:0005910 ! transitional epithelium
name: transitional epithelium
def: "Multilaminar epithelium, which of consists of more than one layer of epithelial cells, in contact with a basement membrane, that can undergo distention and contraction without losing its integrity and consistency. Examples: urothelium.[FMA]" [FMA:63914, Wikipedia:Transitional_epithelium, FMA:FMA]

name: urothelium
def: "The urothelium is the epithelial tissue layer that lines much of the urinary tract, including the renal pelvis, the ureters, the bladder, and parts of the urethra." [Wikipedia:Urothelium]
comment: consider merging with transitional epithelium. MA uses the label 'urothelium' exclusively. FMA uses 'transitional epithelium' and has 'urothelium' as a sibling. FMA also lists 'urothelium' as the only example of 'transitional epithelium'
