The ureteric bud branches and nephrons were imaged by fluorescence microscope.
Embryologically, duplication occurs when two separate ureteric buds arise from a single Wolffian duct (mesonephric duct).
Winyard and Feather (22) found BCL2 immunoreactivity at mesenchymal condensates of fetal kidney, negative staining at ureteric bud braches, and ectopic staining at dysplastic primitive ducts, but negative staining at surrounding collar cells.
The findings demonstrate for the first time that pluripotent stem cells (PSCs)--cells capable of differentiating into the many cells and tissue types that make up the body--can made to develop into cells similar to those found in the ureteric bud, an early developmental structure of the kidneys, and then be further differentiated into three-dimensional structures in organ cultures.
The Salk findings demonstrate for the first time that pluripotent stem cells (PSCs)-cells capable of differentiating into the many cells and tissue types that make up the body- can made to develop into cells similar to those found in the ureteric bud, an early developmental structure of the kidneys, and then be further differentiated into three-dimensional structures in organ cultures.
