Flashcards in Histology 1 Deck (13)
What cells make up the bowmans capsule?
Simple squamous cells
Where urinary tubule begins
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)
Lining of the thin limb of loop of henle?
Thin, simple squamous lining (nuclei protrude)
Thick limb = transitions to simple cuboidal epithelial cells (mitochondria)
Blood vessels supplying the medulla?
Lining of the collecting ducts?
Simple columnar epithelium
Ducts of bellini?
Components of the juxtaglomerular apparatus?
The macula densa
The juxtaglomerular cells
The extraglomerular mesangial cells (lacis cells)
Modified smooth muscle cells in the wall of the afferent arteriole. These cells contain/secrete renin
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
What lines the conducting parts of the urinary tract?
Transitional epithelium/ urothelium
Lining of distal convoluted tubule
