Nephron Development

The morphological events and localization of renal progenitors occurring during nephron development in the adult human kidney.

Mesenchymal cells near the tips of the branching ureteric bud undergo epithelial transition and differentiate through a series of forms made up of renal progenitors (red)

  • a - condensed aggregate forms
  • b - renal vesicle forms
  • c - S-shaped body (red), renal progenitors are localised, at this stage podocyte-committed progenitors (red + blue) as well as tubular-committed progenitors (orange) can already be seen.
  • d - mature nephron, renal progenitors (red), podocyte-committed progenitors (red + blue), as well as tubular-committed progenitors (orange) are distributed along the nephron.
  • e - glomerulus, renal progenitors (red) are localized at the urinary pole of the Bowman capsule. Podocyte-committed progenitors (red + blue) localize along the Bowman capsule.
