The liver, gall bladder, and ventral pancreas are shaped from the posterior area of the ventral foregut. After hepatic induction,
Sox17+/Pdx1+ pancreatobiliary widespread progenitor cells differentiate into Sox17+/Pdx1− gall bladder progenitors and Sox17−/Pdx1+ ventral pancreatic progenitors, but the mobile-extrinsic signals that control this differentiation process are unknown. This
review exhibits that the septum transversum mesenchyme (STM) grows in the posterior route soon after E8.5, getting to be adjacent to
the presumptive gall bladder area, to induce gall bladder advancement. In this induction method, STM-derived BMP4 induces
differentiation from frequent progenitor cells adjacent to the STM into gall bladder progenitor cells, by sustaining Sox17 expression and suppressing Pdx1 expression. Moreover, the STM suppresses ectopic activation of the liver system in the posterior location of the ventral
foregut pursuing hepatic induction by means of an Fgf10/Fgfr2b/Sox9 signaling pathway. Therefore, the STM performs pivotal roles in gall
bladder growth by the two inductive and suppressive outcomes.
