efferent arteriole is _______than afferent arteriole
________is important in regulating the secretion of renin
functional unit of kidney
each nephron consists of ______and _____
renal corpuscle renal tubule
renal corpuscle is ________unit of nephron
renal corpuscle consists of
cluster of capillaries (gloemrulus)surrounding glomerular capsule
cluster of capillaries in renal corpuscle
afferent arterioles give rise to
glomerulus leads to
first step in urine formation
filtration of renal corpuscle
glomerular capsule is an ______at the end of renal tubule and receives _____
renal tubule consists of
two layers of squamous epithelial cells1. visceral layer2. outer parietal layer
visceral layer of renal tubule
outer parietal layer of renal tubule
continuous with visceral layer and with wall of renal tubule
renal tubule leads away from
glomerular capsule and becomes very coiled, forming proximal convoluted tubule.
renal tubule becomes
proximal convoluted tubule
following convoluted tubule is
nephron loop (loop of Henle)

juxtaglomerular cells form _____along the cells of macula densa
juxtaglomerular apparatus is important in
regulation of renin secretion
immune reaction triggered by antigens of beta hemolytic streptococcus
body reacts to beta hemolytic streptococcus antigens by
forming antibodies that join with the antigens to form insoluble complex that block the glomerulus.white...

afferent arteriole is ______than efferent arteriole which causes increased ________to blood...
increased resistance to blood flow in the efferent arteriole causes blood to
back up into the glomerulus
back up of blood in glomerulus results in
relatively higher pressure in the glomerulus capillaries than in nonglomerular capillaries
