Example text

Various factors whose deletions result in renal agenesis are involved in transactivation of GDNF. Secreted GDNF binds to the Ret-GFRα1 receptor complex and activates ureteric budding and branching. A GDNF-independent pathway mediated by Wt1 also exists, but the precise mechanism remains to be clarified. 81-84 These findings may indicate that Eya1 is a gene involved in early commitment of this group of cells to the metanephric lineage. 67,68 Eya1 is expressed in the Six1−/− mesenchyme, which suggests that Eya1 is upstream of Six1.

99 In contrast, Wnt9b, which is expressed in the entire ureteric bud except the very tips, appears to be the vital molecule expressed by the bud that induces the mesenchyme. In the absence of Wnt9b, the bud merges from the wolffian duct and invades the mesenchyme, which condenses around the bud, but pretubular aggregates do not form, and the mesenchymal-to-epithelial transformation does not occur. No further branching of the bud is observed. 101 The role of Wnt signaling has been studied in vitro by exposure of isolated metanephric mesenchyme to fibroblast cultures transfected with Wnt-expressing DNA vectors.

87 In Pax2−/− embryos, Eya1, Six1, and Sal1 are expressed,67 which suggests that the Eya1/Six1 pathway is not downstream but may be upstream of Pax2. 90 The HOX genes are conserved in all metazoans and specify positional information along the body axis. Hox11 paralogs include HoxA11, HoxC11, and HoxD11. 91 Of interest in these mutant mice is that the formation of condensing metanephric mesenchyme and the expression of Eya1, Pax2, and Wt1 remain unperturbed, which suggests that Hox11 is not upstream of these factors.
