Descending Loop of Henle
Ascending Loop of Henle
Distal tubule
Collecting duct
Q. Filtrate in the medulla is       compared with the filtrate in the cortex.


Isosmotic

Q. RAAS describes the process of renin conversion into      .


Aldosterone
Angiotensin II
ANP
Secretin
ADH
Q. Aldosterone responds to       to cause      .


Increased renin / increased water reabsorption
Increased blood osmolarity / increased water reabsorption
Increased blood osmolarity / decreased water reabsorption
Increased Angiotensin II / decreased NaCl reabsorption
