How is the blood flow through the liver so large?
Low resistance to flow in the sinusoids
High pressure difference between the portal vein and hepatic vein
Blood comes from both the hepatic portal vein and the hepatic artery
What would decrease the ability of the Peritubular Capillaries to perform reabsorption?
Increased filtration fraction
Increased peritubular capillary colloid osmotic pressure
Increased Peritubular Capillary hydrostatic pressure
Increased Kf (peritubular capillary filtration coefficient)
Medullary collecting ducts are permeable to urea due to the presence of special transporters called _________that facilitate the transport of urea across the luminal and basolateral membranes.
