The process whereby relatively unspecialized cells acquire specialized structural and/or functional features that characterize the mesangial cells of the kidney as it progresses from its formation to the mature state. The process whereby relatively unspecialized cells acquire specialized structural and/or functional features that characterize the glomerular mesangial cells of the kidney as it progresses from its formation to the mature state. The process whose specific outcome is the progression of a glomerular mesangial cell in the metanephros over time, from its formation to the mature structure. The process whose specific outcome is the progression of a mesangial cell in the kidney over time, from its formation to the mature structure. The process whose specific outcome is the progression of the cell over time, from its formation to the mature structure. Cell development does not include the steps involved in committing a cell to a specific fate. The process whose specific outcome is the progression of a glomerular mesangial cell in the kidney over time, from its formation to the mature structure. The process whose specific outcome is the progression of the glomerular mesangium over time, from its formation to the mature structure. The glomerular mesangium is the thin membrane connective tissue composed of mesangial cells, which helps to support the capillary loops in a renal glomerulus.
