Metanephric mesenchyme gives rise to both the epithelial cells of the nephron and the stromal cells of the mature kidney. The function of the stroma. in kidney morphogenesis is poorly understood. We have generated mice with a null mutation in the Winged Helix (WH) transcription factor BF-2 to examine its function during development. BF-2 expression within… CONTINUE READING
