Lower urinary tract malformations are among the most common congenital anomalies in humans. Molecular genetic studies of mouse external genital development have begun to identify mechanisms that pattern the genital tubercle and orchestrate urethral tubulogenesis. The urethral plate epithelium is an endodermal signaling region that has an essential role in external genital development. However, little is known about the molecular identity of this cell population or the genes that regulate its activity.
