convoluted tubules

convoluted tubules

ducts within the KIDNEY nephron, whose function is to allow reabsorption of salt and water, 80% in the proximal tube and the remainder in the distal tube.

Results and Conclusions: Main morphological changes were seen in proximal convoluted tubules and glomeruli (HandE PAS).
In one study, to verify changes in kidneys of fetuses following administration of diluted aspartame in pregnant rats, a significant increase in glomerular volume and the nuclear size of cells in the distal and proximal convoluted tubules and the collecting duct (Martins & Azoubel, 2006).

The purpose of this research was to assess the effect of sodium cyclamate in kidneys of rats fetuses considering morphometric changes of glomerulus, proximal and distal convoluted tubules, and collecting duct.
