    TRANSPORT URINE TO THE OUTSIDE
  6. RENAL CAPSULE (KIDNEY STRUCTURE)
    FIBROUS CONNECTIVE TISSUE THAT SURROUNDS THE KIDNEY
  7. RENAL CORTEX(KIDNEY STRUCTURE)

  8. RENAL MEDULLA(KIDNEY STRUCTURE)
    INNER TISSUE OF THE KIDNEY
  9. RENAL COLUMN(KIDNEY STRUCTURE)
    OUTER TISSUE OF THE KIDNEY THAT EXTENDS INWARD TO DIVIDE THE MEDULLA INTO PYRAMIDS
  10. RENAL PYRAMID(KIDNEY STRUCTURE)
    THE MEDULLA IS DIVIDED INTO PYRAMIDS
  11. RENAL PELVIS(KIDNEY STRUCTURE)
    EXPANDED PORTION OF THE URETER
  12. CALYXES(KIDNEY STRUCTURE)
    RENAL PELVIS DIVIDED INTO TUBES-->MAJOR CALYX; WHICH IN TURN IS DIVIDED INTO SMALLER TUBES CALLED MINOR CALYX
  13. HILUS(KIDNEY STRUCTURE)
    INTENDED REGION OF THE KIDNEY THROUGHT WHICH BLOOD VESSELS, URETER, AND NERVES PASS THROUGH
  14. RENAL SINUS(KIDNEY STRUCTURE)
    SPACE BEHIND THE RENAL PELVIS
  15. RENAL PAPILLA(KIDNEY STRUCTURE)
    TINY TUBES THAT PROJECT INTO EACH MINOR CALYX
  16. KINDEY FUNCTION
    REGULATES VOLUME, COMPOSITON AND pH OF BODY FLUIDS; REMOVE METABOLIC WASTES: CONTROL RATE OF RED BLOOD CELL PRODUCTION AND BLOOD PRESSURE

  18. NEPHRON
    FUNCTIONAL UNIT OF THE KIDNEY
  19. NEPHRON STRUCTURE
    MADE UP OF RENAL CORPUSCLE AND RENAL TUBULE
  20. RENAL CORPUSCLE
    MADE UP OF RENAL GLOMERULUS AND BOWMAN'S CAPSULE
  21. RENAL TUBULE

    TAKES PLACE IN THE PROXIMAL CONVOLUTES TUBULE(PCT). GLUCOSE AND AMINO ACID, BY TRANSPORT, WATER OSMOSIS AND PROTEINS BY PINOCYTOSIS
  26. SECRETION
    TAKES PLACE IN THE DISTAL CONVOLUTES TUBULE (DCT)
  27. COUNTER CURRENT MECHANISM
    TAKES PLACE IN THE LOOP OF HENLE. REGULATES THE CONCENTRATION OF SODIUM IONS
  28. UREA
    BY PRODUCT OF AMINO ACID METABOLISM
  29. URIC ACID
    BY PRODUCT OF NUCLEIC ACID METABOLISM
  30. URINE COMPOSITION
