  • Tubular Reabsorption

    The second step in urine formation in which water and valuable solutes are reabsorbed from the nephron into the bloodstream.

  • Peritubular Capillaries

    Capillaries associated with nephrons which allow water and solutes to be exchanged between the nephron and the blood during urine formation.
