Recent years have challenged the view that adult somatic cells reach a state of terminal differentiation. Although the ultimate example of this, somatic cell nuclear transfer, has not proven feasible in human beings, dedifferentiation of mature cell types to a more primitive state, direct reprogramming from one mature state to another, and the reprogramming of any adult cell type to a pluripotent state via enforced expression of key transcription factors now all have been shown. The implications of these findings for kidney disease include the re-creation of key renal cell types from more readily available and expandable somatic cell sources. The feasibility of such an approach recently was shown with the dedifferentiation of proximal tubule cells to nephrogenic mesenchyme. In this review, we examine the technical and clinical challenges that remain to such an approach and how new reprogramming approaches also may be useful for kidney disease.
