Distal Convoluted Tubule
Loop of Henle
Proximal Convoluted Tubule
Red Blood Cells
They are actively pumped into the blood
They move naturally with the flow of water
They are moved by transport molecules
They follow positive ions, such as Na+
The descending loop of Henle is not very permeable to ions but is permeable to water.
The descending loop of Henle is not very permeable to water, but is permeable to ions.
The ascending loop of Henle is not very permeable to ions OR water.
The ascending loop of henle is not very permeable to ions, but is permeable to water.
