The Urinary system, Each kidney contains over 1 million tiny blood-processing units called what?
nephrons
The Urinary system, Each kidney contains over 1 million tiny blood-processing units called nephrons, which carry out the processes that form what?
urine
The Urinary system, What is each nephron consists of?
a glomerulus
The Urinary system, Each nephron consists of a glomerulus, a tuft of capillaries associated with a renal tubule, called what?
the glomerular (Bowman's) capsule is blind, enlarged and cup-shaped and completely Surrounds the glomerulus
The Urinary system, Each nephron consists of a glomerulus, a tuft of capillaries associated with a renal tubule, called the glomerular (Bowman's) capsule is what?
blind, enlarged and cup-shaped and completely Surrounds the glomerulus
The Urinary system, what is the name of the glomerular capsule and the enclosed glomerulus
the renal corpuscle
The Urinary system, is the structural and functional units of the kidneys.
The nephron
The Urinary system, The nephron is the structural and functional units of the what?
kidneys
what The collecting ducts receive?
receive urine from many nephrons
what the collecting ducts help concentrate?
help concentrate urine
what the collecting ducts form?
They form the medullary pyramids
The Urinary system, They form the medullary pyramids
collecting ducts
what is the Functions of the nephron include ?
filtration, tubular reabsorption, and tubular secretion. Via these functional processes, the kidneys eliminate nitrogenous metabolic wastes, and regulate the volume, composition, and pH of the blood.

in The Urinary system, are reabsorbed in the proximal convoluted tubules
sodium ions, and the bulk of actively transported ions
in The Urinary system, ions, and the bulk of actively transported ions are what?
reabsorbed in the proximal convoluted tubules.
in The Urinary system, Certain substances (creatinine, drug metabolites,) are not reabsorbed or are reabsorbed incompletely because of what?
of the lack of carriers, their size, or nonlipid solubility.

Certain substances (creatinine, drug metabolites,)
in The Urinary system,Tubular secretion is a means of what?
adding substances to the filtrate (from the blood or tubule cells).
in The Urinary system, It is an active process that is important in eliminating drugs, urea, and excess ions
Tubular secretion
in The Urinary system, excess ions and in maintaining the acid-base balance of the blood.
Tubular secretion
