This was associated with enhanced apoptotic deletion of renal mesenchymal precursors, and an altered spectrum of gene expression, at the start of metanephrogenesis. In humans, the equivalent developmental timeframe would be 5–7 weeks gestation, and this might represent a critical window when kidney morphogenesis might be affected by dietary influences. The most powerful in vivo experiments, however, alter the expression of metanephric molecules by genetic engineering using transgenic animal technology.

The first patent capillaries are evident around the stalk of the ureteric bud, when it has branched once or twice and capillaries later appear in the glomerular crevices of the S-shaped bodies (9). The primitive multilayered visceral glomerular epithelium subsequently forms a monolayer of podocytes, which abut glomerular capillary loops. At 9–10 weeks’ human gestation, the most mature nephrons, located toward the center of the metanephros, are the first to acquire capillary loops and a patent Bowman’s space.

Bars: 120 mm in (a) 30 mm in (b) 10 mm in (c). (Loughna S, Hardman P, Landels E et al. A molecular and genetic analysis of renal glomerular capillary development. ) Embryology are enhanced by addition of VEGF or ANGPT1, or by growth in a hypoxic atmosphere (117–119). Indeed, the contention that the developing kidney is ‘‘hypoxic’’ in vivo is supported by the observation that it expresses high levels of hypoxia-inducible factor proteins, which are normally down-regulated postnatally in healthy kidneys (120).
