About ___ of filtrate volume is urine volume.
___ can be active or passive transport that moves materials out of the peritubular capillaries into renal tubules.
Humans produce concentrated urine, or ___, due to the ability to maintain high medullary concentration gradient.
countercurrent multiplier system
The ___ concentrates urine by having the blood vessel and the filtrate vessel flow in opposite directions alongside one another.
___ is when fluid flowing in parallel tubes but in opposite directions and materials move from one tube segment to the next.
