Table 1 Allocation of nephron formation in the nephrogenic and maturation zones in the outer cortex of the mammalian kidney during the phase of late gestation

From: Shaping of the nephron – a complex, vulnerable, and poorly explored backdrop for noxae impairing nephrogenesis in the fetal human kidney

  1. The initial development of a nephron occurs in a nephrogenic compartment (framed). The recruitment of progenitor cells takes place in the nephrogenic niche and pretubular aggregate. The shaping of the nephron runs in the renal vesicle, comma-shaped, and S-shaped body. Traces left by damage or scheduled reduction are indicated in gray. Traces were reported from the human h, baboon b, and rodent r kidney. [] not investigated
