Constriction of the afferent arteriole is likely to reduce the volume of filtrate appearing in Bowman’s capsule. Endothelial cells in glomerular capillaries are sealed to one another by numerous tight junctions.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
