Senior study author Juan Carlos Izpisua Belmonte, a professor in Salk's Gene Expression Laboratory and holder of the Roger Guillemin Chair said that they have developed a simple and efficient method that allows for the differentiation of human stem cells into well-organized 3D structures of the ureteric bud (UB), which later develops into the collecting duct system.
In the developing kidney, GATA3 is expressed in the ureteric bud along the branching process that gives rise to the collecting system of the definitive kidney, as well as in the glomerular mesangium and adjacent endocapillary cells.
The kidney derives from the nephric ridge of the intermediate mesoderm where the pro-nephric duct elongates to form the Wolffian duct, which in turn gives rise to the ureteric bud and sets the stage for condensation of metanephric mesenchyme and mesynchemal-to-epithelial cell transition.
GDNF stimulates ureteric bud outgrowth and enhances survival of ureteric bud cells in vitro.
