As mentioned previously, Eya1 mutants fail to form metanephric mesenchyme. 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.

Together, these results suggest that Bmp2-ALK3 signaling functions to limit UB branching at the earliest stages of branching morphogenesis but is required for further branching of the ureteric bud. Of interest is that postnatal mice with ALK3 deficiency restricted to the UB lineage (Alk3UB−/−) exhibit a dysplastic renal phenotype characterized by hypoplasia of the renal medulla, a decreased number of medullary collecting ducts, and abnormal expression of β-catenin. 122 in vitro, α3β1 integrin appears to have a role both in cell-matrix and cell-cell interaction,123 but the latter role has not been verified in vivo, although α3β1 integrin is expressed basolaterally in developing tubules, which is consistent with both roles.

Cut, members of the Wingless pathway) that have been shown to play major roles in mammalian kidney development. 312 The pronephros, which is only the first of three stages of kidney development in mammals, is the final and only kidney of jawless fish, whereas the mesonephros is the definitive kidney in amphibians. The pronephros found in larval-stage zebrafish ­consists of two tubules connected to a fused, single, midline ­glomerulus. 63 These features enable investigators to use both forward and reverse genetic screens in zebrafish, and several laboratories are currently performing knockdown screens of mammalian homologs in zebrafish and genomewide mutagenesis screens to study renal function.
