Constructing kidney-like tissues from cells based on programs for organ development: toward a method of in vitro tissue engineering of the kidney.

Abstract

The plausibility of constructing vascularized three-dimensional (3D) kidney tissue from cells was investigated. The kidney develops from mutual inductive interactions between cells of the ureteric bud (UB), derived from the Wolffian duct (WD), and the metanephric mesenchyme (MM). We found that isolated MMs were capable of inducing branching morphogenesis of… (More)
