Question

_______________ is a portion of kidney nephron between the loop of Henle and the collecting duct system.
  1. Descending limb of the loop
  2. Proximal convoluted tubule
  3. Distal convoluted tubule
  4. Collecting duct


Solution

The correct option is B Proximal convoluted tubule
The Bowman's capsule empties the filtrate into the proximal tubule and thus, is said to be the first part of the nephron. The distal convoluted tubule (DCT) is a portion of kidney nephron between the loop of Henle and the collecting duct system. Vasa recta is a series of straight capillaries in the medulla that supplies blood to the kidney and lies parallel to the loop of Henle.
