Kidney
 


Kidney development video  [Interactive video text]

Metanephros forms the definitive kidney in man. It begins by the formation of a ureteric bud which comes out from the Wolffian duct.

At the point of entry of the Wolffian duct on the cloaca the bladder separates from the urogenital sinus. At the caudal portion of the Wolffian duct, the ureteric bud is formed, it grows into the sacral intermediate mesoderm which was not invaded by mesonephric tissue.

The ureteric bud forms a ureteric cap at the intermediate mesoderm and this cap reduces the formation of a metanephric duct within the intermediate mesoderm. Hence the two systems develop differently so that the ureteric cap forms the vesical or tubular part of the kidney while the metanephric duct will form the secretory portion of the kidney.
