The process by which this segmentation occurs may be similar to other aspects of development, such as the limb or neural tube, for which segmentation occurs along various axes. The Notch group of signaling molecules has been implicated in directing segmentation of the nephron. 133 Thus, Notch signaling occurs between adjacent cells, in contrast to signaling by secreted growth factors, which may occur at a distance from the growth factor–expressing cells. The cleaved portion of the Notch cytoplasmic domain translocates to the nucleus, where it has a role in directing gene expression.

Two other prominent members of the BMP family, Bmp2 and Bmp4, also have significant roles in formation of the collecting system,111,115-116 which were more difficult to decipher because mouse embryos carrying mutations in these factors die too early to identify an effect on kidney development. 115,116 In further study of the role of Bmp2, researchers used a constitutively active form of the Bmp2 receptor, activin receptor–like kinase-3 (ALK3), specifically expressed in the derivatives of the ureteric bud.

These experiments showed that the induction of the mesenchymal-to-epithelial transformation within the mesenchyme required the presence of an inducing agent, provided 14 Section I Normal Structure and Function by the ureteric bud. The embryonic neural tube was able to substitute for the epithelial bud, and experiments involving the placement of the inducing agent on the opposite side of a porous filter from the mesenchyme provided information about the degree of contact required between them. A large series of experiments with the organ culture provided information about the timing of appearance of different proteins normally observed during the induction of nephrons, as well as the time intervals that were crucial in maintaining contact between the inducing agent and the mesenchyme to obtain induction of tubules.
