    ..Disturbed activity of this signaling module may entail defects of the VUJ, which are frequent in the spectrum of congenital anomalies of the kidney and the urinary tract (CAKUT) in human newborns. ..

    ..With progression of the genetic analyses of mice conditionally mutant for compound alleles of Eph receptor and ephrin ligand genes, additional essential functions are likely to arise in the urinary system. ..

    ..FGFR1 signaling does not contribute to early adrenocortical development. Our work suggests that FGFR2IIIb and IIIc isoforms largely act redundantly to promote expansion of the adrenocortical primordium. ..
