Example text

127 In embryos deficient in either Slit2 or Robo2, the UB are ectopic, as in the FoxC1 mutant. 127) The domain of GDNF expression is expanded anteriorly in the absence of either Slit2 or Robo2. 128 The expression of Pax2, Eya1, and FoxC1, all thought to regulate GDNF expression, was not dramatically different in the absence of Slit2 or Robo2, which suggests that Slit/Robo signaling was not upstream of these genes. It is possible that Slit/Robo signaling is regulating the point of ureteric bud outgrowth by regulating the GDNF expression domain downstream of Pax2 or Eya1.

The kidneys of Pod1-KO mice contain vascular anomalies and absence of pericyte differentiation that were not reported in FoxD1-mutant mice. These differences might result from the broader domain of Pod1 expression, 20 Section I Normal Structure and Function A B C D FIGURE 1-11 Developing glomeruli stained with an antibody to the green fluorescent protein (GFP). Control glomerulus from a wild-type mouse. 5 days post coitum. All endothelial cells express the GFP protein that is expressed under control of the endogenous Flk1/VEGFR-2 promoter.

As previously noted, a distinction between induction by the ureteric bud and induction by the neural tube is that the bud stimulates both proliferation and mesenchymal-toepithelial transformation, whereas the neural tube, or Wnt4 expression by fibroblasts, stimulates only differentiation, without significant proliferation. On the other hand, both the classical neural tube experiment and the Wnt-expressing fibroblast experiment seemingly bypass a step normally observed in kidney development: formation of the pretubular aggregate inferior to the tips of the bud.
