Abstract: The murine pancreas buds from the ventral embryonic endoderm at approximately 8.75 dpc and a second pancreas bud emerges from the dorsal endoderm by 9.0 dpc. Although it is clear that secreted signals from adjacent mesoderm-derived sources are required for both the appropriate emergence and further refinement of the pancreatic endoderm, neither the exact signals nor the requisite tissue sources have been defined in mammalian systems. Herein we use DiI fate mapping of cultured murine embryos to identify the embryonic sources of both the early inductive and later condensed pancreatic mesenchyme. Despite being capable of supporting pancreas induction from dorsal endoderm in co-culture experiments, we find that in the context of the developing embryo, the dorsal aortae as well as the paraxial, intermediate, and lateral mesoderm derivatives only transiently associate with the dorsal pancreas bud, producing descendants that are decidedly anterior to the pancreas bud. Unlike these other mesoderm derivatives, the axial (notochord) descendants maintain association with the dorsal pre-pancreatic endoderm and early pancreas bud. This fate mapping data points to the notochord as the likely inductive source in vivo while also revealing dynamic morphogenetic movements displayed by individual mesodermal subtypes. Because none of the mesoderm examined above produced the pancreatic mesenchyme that condenses around the induced bud to support exocrine and endocrine differentiation, we also sought to identify the mesodermal origins of this mesenchyme. We identify a portion of the coelomic mesoderm that contributes to the condensed pancreatic mesenchyme. In conclusion, we identify a portion of the notochord as a likely source of the signals required to induce and maintain the early dorsal pancreas bud, demonstrate that the coelomic mesothelium contributes to the dorsal and ventral pancreatic mesenchyme, and provide insight into the dynamic morphological rearrangements of mesoderm-derived tissues during early organogenesis stages of mammalian development.
