In kidneys, water moves from ___ solute to ___ solute, and there is no ____ force for water to move b/w fluid compartments
Primary solute which causes reabsorption of water
Where is 70% of filtered water reabsorbed & is it regulated or not? If so, what is it regulated by?
- Proximal tubules;
- Not regulated (water moves down concentration gradient so body is not controlling reabsorption)
Where is 30% of filtered water reasborbed and is it regulated? If so, what is it regulated by?

What organ controls osmolarity of
Most water is reabsorbed in the ____, due the mvmt of solutes across tubule to capillary which causes a concentration gradient. Water follows these solutes.
How does ADH regulate water reabsorption? What happens w/out ADH present?
Stimulates the insertion of water channels (aquaporin-2) into apical membrane (collecting duct cells) of distal conv tubule. Without ADH, DCT and collecting duct are impermeable to water, and more water is excreted in urine.
Minimum vol of water that must be excreted in the urine per day
Obligatory water loss
Does ADH increase or decrease urine volume?
What happens to GFR and water filtered & excreted when blood pressure is decreased to less than 80 mmHg?
- GFR is decreased
- Water filtered is decreased
- Water excretion is decreased
What happens to GFR and water filtered & excreted when blood pressure is increased to over 180 mmHg?
- GFR is increased
- Water filtered is increased
- Water excreted is increased
Basically, chgs in GFR work to limit water loss when bp is ___ and increase water loss when bp is ___.
What are the terms for high and
low blood sodium?
Primary solute in ECF which is critical for normal osmotic pressure and to function of excitable cells
Is sodium filtered? Where is sodium reabsorbed? Is sodium secreted?
Sodium is freely filtered and has unregulated reabsorption in proximal tubule, but regulated reabsorption in distal tubule and collecting duct. No.
What regulates sodium reabsorption in distal tubule and collecting duct (thereby regulating water reabsorption)?
Aldosterone (which is secreted from adrenal cortex) and ANP
Steroid hormone secreted from adrenal cortex
How does aldosterone control sodium reabsorption?
On distal tubule cells and collecting duct cells, increases number of Na/K pumps on basolateral membrane, and increases number of open Na/K on apical mem. This increases amt of Na that can move out and be reabsorbed.
___ secretes angiotensinogen
___ secretes renin
___ contains ACE
___ secretes aldosterone
- Kidney juxtaglomerular cells
- Capillary walls
- Adrenal cortex
Enzyme that converts angiotensinogen to angiotensin I
Enzyme that converts angiotensin I to angiotensin II
ACE (agniotensin-converting enzyme)
___ causes secretion of aldosterone from the adrenal cortex
ACE inhibitor decrases amt of ____ produced, which ____ blood vol, which decreases blood pressure
What is the main purpose of renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system?
Controlling uptake of sodium and water
How does angiotensin II affect blood pressure OTHER than by causing aldosterone release? (3)
- Increases mean arterial pressure (MAP) via:
- Vasoconstriction of systemic arterioles
- ADH secretion
- Stimulating thirst
- (Increases amt of water retained)
What stimulates renin release from kidney juxtaglomerular cells? (3)
- Decreased pressure in afferent arteriole
- Renal sympathetic nerve activity
- Decreases in Na+ and Cl- in distal tubule filtrate (causes water retention)
Where is atrial natriuretic peptide secreted & what causes it?
Secreted by artial cells in response to distension of atrial wall
Has opposite action of aldosterone. Increases GFR, causing dilation of afferent arteriole and constrctoin of efferent arteriole. Causes more Na excretion by closing Na channels in apical membrane
Atrial Natriuretic Peptide
___: high plasma K+
___: low plasma K+
___ is an ion which is crucial to the functioning of excitable cells, such as heart cells and neurons
Where is potassium filtered? Is potassium secreted or reabsorbed and where does this take place?
- Filtered in glomerulus freely
- Reabsorbed in proximal tubules
- Both reabsorbed and secreted in distal tubules and collecting ducts (regulated secretion)

Inner portion of membrane of cells which line a tubule (tubule epithelial cells)
Outer portion of membrane of cells which line a tubule (tubule epithelial cells)
Outside layer of tubule
