1

What cells make up the bowmans capsule?

Simple squamous cells

2

Urinary pole?

Where urinary tubule begins

3

The two layers that separate the blood from the glomerular filtrate?

Capillary endothelium and podocytes (specialised epithelium)

(basal lamina between these layers and is made of GAG)

4

Lining of the thin limb of loop of henle?

Thin, simple squamous lining (nuclei protrude)

Thick limb = transitions to simple cuboidal epithelial cells (mitochondria)

5

Blood vessels supplying the medulla?

Vasa recta

6

Lining of the collecting ducts?

Simple columnar epithelium

7

Ducts of bellini?

Collecting ducts

8

Components of the juxtaglomerular apparatus?

The macula densa
The juxtaglomerular cells
The extraglomerular mesangial cells (lacis cells)

9

Modified smooth muscle cells in the wall of the afferent arteriole. These cells contain/secrete renin

Juxtaglomerular cells

10

What are the juxtaglomerular cells and what do they secrete?

They are modified smooth muscle cells in the wall of the afferent arteriole
They contain/secrete cells

11

What lines the conducting parts of the urinary tract?

Transitional epithelium/ urothelium

12

Lining of distal convoluted tubule

SImple cuboidal

13

How can you tell the difference between proximal and distal convoluted tubule epithelium?

Proximal have brush border and microvilli

Distal don't
