Sample text

This separation of salt and water is possible because these segments of the nephron have no water channels and have a low water permeability. The diluting segments are responsible for the generation of free water for excretion. If needed, the adult kidney can excrete ~30 L of free water a day. Thus, an adult with intact renal diluting capacity would have to drink over 30 L of water a day in order to develop hyponatremia. As discussed below, this is not true in case of the neonate. 3, as ADH binds to the basolateral receptor (V2 receptor or V2R), it stimulates the production of cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP).

Formation of glomerular and tubular precursors The development of metanephric derivatives begins when the blastema is rescued from apoptosis and induced to proliferate coincident with the invasion of the ureteric bud. 21 With the invasion of the ureteric bud, the blastemal cells differentiate along distinct pathways. Cells adjacent to the ureteric bud tips condense and begin to display morphologic and molecular features characteristic of epithelial cells. The molecular basis for nephron segmentation into various cell lines, such as podocytes, mesangium, or tubular lineages, is largely unknown.
