Abstract

To determine the importance of fibroblast growth factor receptors (fgfrs) 1 and 2 in the metanephric mesenchyme, we generated conditional knockout mice (fgfrMes-/-).Fgfr1Mes-/- andfgfr2Mes-/- mice develop normal-appearing kidneys. Deletion of both receptors (fgfr1/2 Mes-/-) results in renal aplasia.Fgfr1/2Mes-/- mice develop a ureteric bud (and occasionally an ectopic bud) that does not elongate or branch, and the mice do not develop an obvious metanephric mesenchyme. By in situ hybridization, regions of mutant mesenchyme near the ureteric bud(s) expressEya1 andSix1, but notSix2,Sall1, orPax2, while the ureteric bud expressesRet andPax2 normally. Abnormally high rates of apoptosis and relatively low rates of proliferation are present in mutant mesenchyme dorsal to the mutant ureteric bud at embryonic day (E) 10.5, while mutant ureteric bud tissues undergo high rates of apoptosis by E11.5. Thus,fgfr1 andfgfr2 together are critical for normal formation of metanephric mesenchyme. While the ureteric bud(s) initiates, it does not elongate or branch infgfr1/2Mes-/- mice. In metanephric mesenchymal rudiments,fgfr1 andfgfr2 appear to function downstream ofEya1 andSix1, but upstream ofSix2,Sall1, andPax2. Finally, this is the first example of renal aplasia in a conditional knockout model.
