    Macrophages restrict the nephrogenic field and promote endothelial connections during kidney development

    David AD Munro et al.
    Embryonic macrophages encourage early kidney development, interact with developing renal blood vessels, are enriched for mRNAs linked to vascular development, and promote endothelial cross-connections.

    Spatiotemporal dynamics and heterogeneity of renal lymphatics in mammalian development and cystic kidney disease

    Daniyal J Jafree et al.
    Three-dimensional imaging was used to identify structural and quantitative features of developing lymphatics in the kidneys of mice, humans and in a genetic mouse model of polycystic kidney disease.

    R-spondin signalling is essential for the maintenance and differentiation of mouse nephron progenitors

    Valerie PI Vidal et al.
    In the developing kidney, secreted molecules of the R-spondin family control progenitor cell proliferation and nephron formation by permitting WNT/β-catenin signalling.

    Branching morphogenesis in the developing kidney is not impacted by nephron formation or integration

    Kieran M Short et al.
    Analysing developing mouse kidneys demonstrates nephron formation does not significantly impact branching morphogenesis of the ureteric bud, suggesting this process is distinct from branching in organs like the mammary gland.

    Kinesin superfamily protein Kif26b links Wnt5a-Ror signaling to the control of cell and tissue behaviors in vertebrates

    Michael W Susman et al.
    Kif26b, a new component of the evolutionarily conserved Wnt5a-Ror signaling pathway, is controlled by regulated proteolysis and plays crucial roles in mediating vertebrate embryonic tissue morphogenesis.

    Integrated β-catenin, BMP, PTEN, and Notch signalling patterns the nephron

    Nils O Lindström et al.
    The patterning of the nephron is driven by a gradient in the activity of β-catenin and further defined by a network of BMP, PTEN and NOTCH signalling.

    Prostaglandin signaling regulates nephron segment patterning of renal progenitors during zebrafish kidney development

    Shahram Jevin Poureetezadi et al.
    Prostaglandin synthesis and PGE2 receptor activity are essential for mediating segmentation of renal progenitors during pronephros formation in the zebrafish.

    Wnt11 directs nephron progenitor polarity and motile behavior ultimately determining nephron endowment

    Lori L O'Brien et al.
    Wnt11 maintains nephron progenitor niche integrity during kidney development through its modulation of cellular dynamics.

    Generation of an expandable intermediate mesoderm restricted progenitor cell line from human pluripotent stem cells

    Nathan Kumar et al.
    An expandable cell population derived from human pluripotent stem cells exhibits properties of mesoderm and is restricted to differentiate into derivatives of intermediate mesoderm.

    A β-catenin-driven switch in TCF/LEF transcription factor binding to DNA target sites promotes commitment of mammalian nephron progenitor cells

    Qiuyu Guo et al.
    β-Catenin-mediated expansion of nephron progenitors is independent of direct β-catenin/chromatin engagement, while progenitor induction proceeds with a β-catenin-driven switch of repressive TCFL1/TCFL2 to activating TCF7/LEF1 factors on transcriptionally poised enhancers.
