Isl1 mediates mesenchymal expansion in the developing external genitalia via regulation of Bmp4, Fgf10 and Wnt5a.

Hum Mol Genet 2018 01;27(1):107-119

Department of Orofacial Sciences, University of California, San Francisco, CA 94143, USA.

Genital malformations are among the most common human birth defects, and both genetic and environmental factors can contribute to these malformations. Development of the external genitalia in mammals relies on complex signaling networks, and disruption of these signaling pathways can lead to genital defects. Islet-1 (ISL1), a member of the LIM/Homeobox family of transcription factors, has been identified as a major susceptibility gene for classic bladder exstrophy in humans, a common form of the bladder exstrophy-epispadias complex (BEEC), and is implicated in a role in urinary tract development.

Kangsun Yun

J Vis Exp 2017 10 12(128). Epub 2017 Oct 12.

Cancer and Developmental Biology Laboratory, National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health;

Urinary tract junction obstruction defects are congenital anomalies inducing hydronephrosis and hydroureter. Murine urinary tract junction obstruction defects can be assessed by tracking methylene blue dye flow within the urinary system. Methylene blue dye is injected into the renal pelvis of perinatal embryonic kidneys and dye flow is monitored from the renal pelvis of the kidney through the ureter and into the bladder lumen after applying hydrostatic pressure.

Med Oncol 2017 Aug 19;34(8):143. Epub 2017 Jul 19.

Department of Oncology, National Taiwan University Hospital, Taipei City, Taiwan.

Although current staging workups could differentiate most patients with operable from inoperable advanced gastric cancers, there are still some patients with low-volume peritoneal carcinomatosis, defined as only metastasis with multiple subcentimeter lesions in peritoneum, receiving unnecessary open-close procedures. The computed tomography (CT) of the patients with unresectable advanced gastric cancer harboring low-volume peritoneal carcinomatosis was retrospectively identified and then thoroughly reviewed by two independent radiologists unaware of the peritoneal carcinomatosis status. Of the 798 patients with newly diagnosed gastric cancer between January 2007 and December 2010, 52 patients harboring advanced gastric cancer with low-volume peritoneal carcinomatosis receiving surgery with curative intent were identified.

BMP4 uses several different effector pathways to regulate proliferation and differentiation in the epithelial and mesenchymal tissue compartments of the developing mouse ureter.

Hum Mol Genet 2017 09;26(18):3553-3563

Institut für Molekularbiologie, OE5250, Medizinische Hochschule Hannover, 30625 Hannover, Germany.

Heterozygous loss of Bmp4 results both in humans and mice in severe malformation of the urinary tract. These defects have at least partially been attributed to loss of expression of Bmp4 in the ureteric mesenchyme, yet the cellular and molecular function of this signal as well as its effector pathways in this tissue have remained incompletely resolved. Here, we show that mice with a conditional deletion of Bmp4 in the ureteric mesenchyme exhibited hydroureter and hydronephrosis at newborn stages due to functional and physical ureter obstruction.

Hum Mol Genet 2017 05;26(9):1716-1731

Department of Human Genetics.

Congenital anomalies of the kidneys and urinary tract (CAKUT) are the most common cause of chronic kidney disease in children. As CAKUT is a genetically heterogeneous disorder and most cases are genetically unexplained, we aimed to identify new CAKUT causing genes. Using whole-exome sequencing and trio-based de novo analysis, we identified a novel heterozygous de novo frameshift variant in the leukemia inhibitory factor receptor (LIFR) gene causing instability of the mRNA in a patient presenting with bilateral CAKUT and requiring kidney transplantation at one year of age.

Uroepithelial thickening improves detection of vesicoureteral reflux in infants with prenatal hydronephrosis.

J Pediatr Urol 2016 Aug 27;12(4):257.e1-7. Epub 2016 May 27.

Department of Urology, The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, Columbus, OH, USA; Section of Pediatric Urology, Nationwide Children's Hospital, Columbus, OH, USA. Electronic address:

Introduction: Postnatal evaluation of prenatal hydronephrosis (PNH) often includes a voiding cystourethrogram (VCUG) for VUR assessment. Despite limited supporting data, VCUG is currently recommended if postnatal renal and bladder ultrasound (RBUS) reveals moderate/severe hydronephrosis (HN) or hydroureter (HU). Recent studies have shown VUR is more accurately diagnosed by using certain sonographic findings as criteria for obtaining VCUG. Read More

J Radiol Case Rep 2015 Dec 31;9(12):37-43. Epub 2015 Dec 31.

Department of Radiology, University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), Birmingham, Alabama. USA.

We report a case of an indwelling inferior vena cava filter that penetrated the IVC wall after Whipple's pancreatico-duodenectomy procedure performed in a patient with ampullary carcinoma, resulting in right ureteral injury and obstruction with subsequent hydroureter and hydronephrosis. This was incidentally discovered on a computed tomography scan performed as routine follow up to evaluate the results of the surgery. We retrieved the inferior vena cava filter and placed a nephrostomy catheter to relieve the ureteral obstruction. Read More
