Model Sox9 Lung Development

Mesenchymal Sox9-expressing cells in the development of the tracheal cartilage rings, which in turn induce proper tracheal epithelium differentiation and lymphatic system development.

Sox9 acts downstream of Tbx4/5.

Sox9 feeds back negatively on Tbx4 and Tbx5 in the tracheal mesenchyme. Cartilage ring formation requires functional Sox9 expression in the tracheal mesenchyme. Lack of cartilage rings induce altered tracheal epithelium differentiation (increased Clara cells, and decreased basal and goblet cells) and defective development of tracheal vasculature structures.
