6 p 899

7 p 903 Nephron = functional unit of the urinary system Filtrate = in capsule Tubular Fluid = in PCT to DCT Urine = in collecting duct & beyond

8 p 901 Cortical Nephrons = about 85% Most reabsorption & secretion Juxtamedulary Nephrons = 15% Produce concentrated urine

9 p 904 Urine Formation 1) Glomerular Filtration 2) Tubular Reabsorption & Secretion 3) Water Reabsorption (Conservation)

10 p 902 Glomerular Filtration

11 p 905 Filtration (Endothelial-Capsular) Membrane Fenestrated Endothelium Basement Membrane Filtration Slits Prevents passage of cells & most proteins Plasma = 7% protein Filtrate = 0.03% protein Ca++, Fe++, T 4 hormone Bound to proteins

12 p 905

13 Blood hydrostatic pressure (BHP) is much higher than normal capillaries About 60 mm Hg vs 15 mmHg Because Afferent arteriole (inlet) is larger than efferent arteriole (outlet)

14 p 902 Capsular hydrostatic pressure (CP) is about 18 mm Hg vs about 0 mm Hg for interstitial fluid Why?

15 Net Filtration Pressure (NFP)

16 Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) = amount of filtrate formed by BOTH kidneys per minute Normal is 12.5 ml for each 1 mm Hg NFP for men & 10.5 ml for women For NFP = 10 mm Hg GFR = 125 ml/min or 180 L/day

17 What would happen if glomerular hydrostatic pressure dropped to 50 mm Hg ? What would be the effect on GFR?

18 GFR Control 1) Autoregulation = self regulation, no neural or endocrine Myogenic Mechanism = smooth muscle contracts when stretched How will smooth muscle of afferent arteriole react if BP decreases? If it increases? What effect will dilation of afferent arteriole have on GFR? Effect of constriction?

19 p 908 Juxtaglomerular cells = Smooth muscle in afferent arteriole, that secretes renin Macula densa = receptor cells in wall of DCT Mesangial cells = specialized contractile cells that may also ?? Juxtaglomerular Apparatus

20 p 908 GFR Control 1) Autoregulation: Tubuloglomerular Feedback = Juxtaglomerular apparatus monitors fluid entering DCT and adjusts GFR to maintain homeostasis

21 p 908 If GFR is too high macula densa detects the change & sends chemical signal to Juxtaglomerular cells, which constrict the afferent arteriole, and thereby reduce GFR Juxtaglomerular Apparatus

22 GFR Control 2) Sympathetic Nervous System In response to strenuous exercise the sympathetic N.S. redirects blood to heart, brain and skeletal muscle, and away from organs like kidneys by constricting the afferent arterioles What effect will this have on GFR?

23 GFR Control 3) Renin-Angiotensin Mechanism When BP drops, sympathetic N.S. triggers release of renin by juxtaglomerular cells Renin converts a plasma protein, angiotensinogen into angiotensin I Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) from lungs & kidneys converts angiotensin I into angiotensin II, which is a hormone with many powerful effects

24 p 909 Angiotensin II Effects Systemic Vasoconstriction Constricts afferent & efferent arterioles Stimulates NaCl & water reabsorption by kidneys Stimulates aldosterone release by adrenal cortex Stimulates antidiuretic hormone (ADH) release Stimulates thirst center in hypothalamus

25 p 904 Urine Formation 1) Glomerular Filtration 2) Tubular Reabsorption & Secretion 3) Water Reabsorption (Conservation)

26 Proximal Convoluted Tubule (PCT) Longest & most coiled of portion of tubule Simple cuboidal epithelium with microvilli Many mitochondria provide ATP for high amount of active transport Tubular Reabsorption = movement of water and solutes from tubular fluid to blood Tubular Secretion = movement of substances from blood into tubular fluid

27 p 910 PCT Sodium (Na + ) reabsorption = % of total through secondary active transport

28 p 910 PCT Chloride (Cl - ) reabsorption = % of total mostly by following sodium (electrical attraction)

29 p 910 PCT Bicarbonate (HCO 3 - ) reabsorption? = most of total returned to blood by slight of hand trick & carbonic anhydrase

30 p 910 PCT Nutrient (glucose, amino acids) reabsorption = Normally 100% returned via cotransport with Na +

31 p 910 PCT Nitrogenous waste reabsorption = About half of urea diffuses out of tubular fluid, uric acid diffuses out, NOT creatinine (too large)

32 p 910 PCT Water reabsorption = % of total through osmosis, basically by following solutes, called obligatory water reabsorption, (no control/choice)

33 Uptake by Peritubular Capillaries Water = Osmosis Build up of interstitial H 2 O from PCT means greater hydrostatic pressure Narrow efferent arteriole means low BHP in peritubular capillaries, about 8 mm Hg Trapped proteins (not filtered with water) means higher colloidal osmotic pressure (COP) Solutes = Solvent Drag Water drags solutes into capillary

34 p 106 Transport Maximum (T m ) = maximum rate of reabsorption that is reached when all carrier proteins are saturated Transport maximum determines the renal threshold, or the plasma concentration at which a specific compound or ion will begin appearing in the urine For example, renal threshold for glucose is about 220 mg/dL Untreated diabetes mellitus may be 400 mg/dL

35 Nephron Loop Thin, descending limb = water permeable Reabsorbs about 15% of water, now about 80% of total Thick, ascending limb = water impermeable Reabsorbs about 25% of Na + and Cl -, now about 90% of total So tubular fluid becomes more dilute Leaves excess Na+ and Cl- in peritubular fluid (interstitial fluid around tubules)

36 Osmolarity Osmolarity = amount of dissolved particles in one liter of solution Normal range of physiological osmolarity is measured in milliosmoles per liter (mOsm/L) Blood plasma, interstitial fluid, and intracellular fluid (cytosol) measure about 300 mOsm/L

37 p 915 Countercurrent Multiplier = establishes salinity gradient in renal medulla

38 Distal Convoluted Tubule (DCT) & Collecting Duct Fluid arriving at DCT contains about 20% of water & 10% of salts (mostly NaCl) Reabsorption of remaining water and salts is variable and under the control of hormones This allows for the regulation of water and salt balances

39 Aldosterone = salt-retaining hormone Secreted by adrenal cortex, triggered by; Low blood Na + Elevated K + Low BP Renin Angiotensin II Principle cells with aldosterone receptors in Ascending limb of nephron loop Distal convoluted tubule Collecting duct (cortical part only)

40 Aldosterone binds nuclear receptors & activates transcription of gene for Na + /K + pump In 10 to 30 minutes effect of pumps at work in membrane is seen Na + /K + pump in tubular cell basal membrane Moves Na + out = Na + reabsorption Moves K + in = K + secretion

41 p 939

42 Atrial Natriuretic Peptide (ANP) Secreted by atrial myocardium in response to high blood pressure Dilates afferent & constricts efferent arterioles Inhibits renin and aldosterone secretion Inhibits ADH secretion and action of ADH on kidneys Inhibits NaCl reabsorption by collecting ducts Reduces blood volume which reduces blood pressure

43 p 904 Urine Formation 1) Glomerular Filtration 2) Tubular Reabsorption & Secretion 3) Water Reabsorption (Conservation)

44 Antidiuretic Hormone (ADH) Secreted by posterior pituitary, triggered by; Dehydration & rising blood osmolarity Causes more water to be reabsorbed in collecting duct, so less water lost in urine Relies on high osmolarity in extracellular fluid of inner medulla Total = 1200 mOsm/L About 750 mOsm/L from NaCl About 450 from urea (papillary region)

45 p 915 ADH causes cells in collecting duct to synthesize aquaporins (water-channel proteins) & install them in plasma membrane Resulting in more water being able to pass through the tubule wall What determines the highest osmolarity possible for urine?

46 Renal Clearance Renal Clearance = volume of blood plasma from which a particular waste is completely removed in one minute Glomerular filtration of waste (125 ml/min) PLUS amount added by tubular secreation MINUS amount removed by tubular reabsorption Renal Clearance Inulin = 125 ml/min Urea = 60 ml/min Creatinine = 140 ml/min
