Flashcards in Block 4 - Uriniferous Tubule Deck (18):
1

juxtamedullary nephrons are blank compared to cortical

longer (goes deeper)

2

three parts of renal corpuscle

glomerulus, urinary space, outer lining membrane (bowmans corpuscle

3

cell types of the glomerulus

podocytes, endothelial cells, mesangial cells

4

podocytes are located in blank

bowmans capsule

5

endothelial cells are around blank

capillaries

6

kidney is the only place in the body that has blank epithelium without blank

fenestrated, diaphragms

7

most deeply stained aciophilic tubules

proximal

8

blank tubules often have blank that touch the surface of the inside of the membrane

distal

9

defining feature of thin tubule

super thin simple squamous epithelium

10

defining feature of collecting tubule

cell borders obvious

11

proximal convoluted tubule can be identified by being in the blank

convoluted cortex

12

medulla doesnt have blank tubules

convoluted

13

inner medulla contains these

papillary ducts

14

afferent arteriole has more blank than efferents

smooth muscle

15

these form a cusion between the arterioles and the distal tubule

mesangial cells

16

renin begins cascade which forms this

angiotensin 2

17

easiest way to see if a section is through the renal CONVOLUTED cortex

presence of corpuscles

18

three parts of loop of henle

proximal straight tubule (descending thick), thin tubule (descending/ascending thin limb), distal straight tubule (ascending thick)
