1.channel protein through which water can diffuse across a membrane atrial natriuretic hormone- hormone secreted by the heart that increases sodium excretion
6.movement of primarily nutrient molecules and water from the contents of the nephron into blood at the proximal convoluted tubule (2 Words)
7.cuplike structure that is the initial portion of a nephron (2 Words)
15.hormone secreted by the adrenal cortex that regulates the sodium and potassium ion balance of the blood
16.final portion of a nephron that joins with a collecting duct (3 Words)
17.paired organs of the vertebrate urinary system that regulate the chemical composition of the blood and produce a waste product called urine
18.enzyme released by the kidneys that leads to the secretion of aldosterone and a rise in blood pressure
19.elimination of metabolic wastes by an organism at exchange boundaries such as the plasma membrane of unicellular organisms and excretory tubules of multicellular animals
2.Hormone produced from angiotensinogen by the kidneys and lungs antidiuretic hormone- hormone secreted by the posterior pituitary that increases the permeability of the collecting ducts in a kidney (2 Words)
3.movement of small molecules from the glomerulus into the glomerular capsule due to the action of blood pressure (2 Words)
4.microscopic kidney unit that that regulates blood composition by glomerular filtration, tubular reabsorption, and tubular secretion
5.portion of a nephron following the glomerular capsule where tubular reabsorption of filtrate occurs (3 Words)
8.nitrogenous end product that takes a limited amount of energy to produce but requires much water to excrete because it is toxic
9.duct within the kidney that receives fluid from several nephrons (2 Words)
10.portion of a nephron between the proximal and distal convoluted tubules (4 Words)
11.movement of certain molecules from blood into the distal convoluted tubule of a nephron so that they are added to urine (2 Words)
12.hormone produced by the kidneys that speed red blood cell formation
13.capillary network within the glomerular capsule of a nephron
14.regulation of the salt water balance to maintain a normal balance within internal fluids
