Aldosterone, ADH, ANF
3 Hormones that control Salt and Water Balance.
This hormone's main target is the kidney and it decreases Na+ excretion and causes water retention and increased blood pressure.

Blood volume is ___________ correlated with blood pressure.
Blood volume is regulated by regulating sodium __________ in the kidney.
water follows Na+ by _____________
Increased Na+ = increased _______________

Third step of urine formation is ____________ ____________
Fourth step of urine formation is _________
Main organ that regulates aldosterone. Part of the afferent arteriole wall.
Macula densa cells
These cells are part of the distal convoluted tubule wall and located next to juxtaglomerular cells
Juxtaglomerular cells and macula densa make up what?
Juxtaglomerular apparatus secrete ________ ________ that ultimately regulate aldosterone.
Juxtaglomerular apparatus gets activated when the _________ ________ is activated.
mean arterial pressure
A drop in this is sensed by baroreceptors and triggers a sympathetic response.
Juxtaglomerular cells richly innervated by ________ _________.
Drop in Afferent Arteriole Blood Pressure is directly sensed by _________ __________ in juxtaglomerular cells.
Drop is Na+ reabsorpt
Glomerular Filtration Rate.

Aldosterone also promotes _____________ secretion.
Cant save ____ without losing _____.
