    What can contract to close filtration slits?
    • OL = Parietal¬† - Simple Squamous Epithelium
    • IL = Visceral - Contains:
    • Podocytes w/ filt slits/pores w memb stretched across the pores.

    What can close/open filtration slits? Pedicels

    10 - 12 inches
  17. What two processes aid or influence the filtering process?
    • Filtering COefficient (how wholy filt memb is)
    • A difference in pressures cause filtration.
  18. What 3 things wont filter????
    • Formed elements (ex)
