Development of the kidney serves as a paradigm to understand the mechanisms underlying the formation of an organ. The first sign of kidney development is the interaction between two tissues derived from the intermediate mesoderm, the metanephrogenic mesenchyme and the nephric duct. Many of the genes that play a crucial role in early kidney development, such… CONTINUE READING
