Angiotensin ii niggers the release of adh stimulating

This preview shows page 3 out of 5 pages.

angiotensin II niggers the release of ADH, stimulating the reabsorption of water in the distal portion of the DCT and the collecting system, and it causes the sensation of thirst. At the Adrenal gland, angiotensin II stimulates the secretion of aldosterone by the cortex. Aldosterone accelerates sodium reabsorption in the DCT and the cortical portion of the collection system. 15. Which structures of the urinary system are responsible for the transport, storage, and elimination of urine. Structures responsible for the transport, storage. and elimination of urine are the ureters, urinary bladder and urethra. 16- When the renal threshold for a substance exceeds its tubular maximum (d) the amount of the substance that exceeds the tubular maximum, will be found in the urine. (d) 17- Sympathetic activation of nerve fibers in the nephron causes the regulation of glomerular blood flow and pressure, the stimulation of renin release from the juxtaglomerular complex, the direct stimulation of water and Na + reabsorption. (d) all of these 18- Sodium reabsorption in the DCT and in the cortical portion of the collecting system is accelerated by the secretion of aldosterone. (c) 19- When ADH levels rise, the amount of water reabsorbed increases. (a) 20. The control of blood PH by the kidneys during acidosis involves the secretion of hydrogen ions and reabsorption of bicarbonate ions from the tubular fluid. (a) 21- How are proteins excluded from filtrate? Why is this important? Proteins are excluded from filtrate because they are too large to fit through the filtration slits between adjacent pedicels. Keeping proteins in the plasma ensures that blood colloid osmotic pressure will oppose filtration and return water to the plasma.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
