Name: pronephric duct
Synonyms: pronephric ducts
Definition: Duct of the embryonic kidney, present bilaterally ventral to the somites and leading to the cloacal chamber. Wingert et al. have suggested that the pronephric duct as described traditionally may consist of subregions which are analogous to portions of the tubule segment of mammalian and other fish nephrons.

Name: epithelial cilium movement involved in extracellular fluid movement
Synonyms: cilium movement involved in fluid flow, epithelial cilium beating
Definition: The directed, self-propelled movement of cilia of epithelial cells. Depending on the type of cell, there may be one or many cilia per cell. This movement is usually coordinated between many epithelial cells, and serves to move extracellular fluid.
