Open in App
Solution

ADH is the hormone secreted by the posterior pituitary. It regulates the water absorption in the collecting tubule of the nephron. It induces the translocation of aquaporin-CD water channels in the plasma membrane of collecting duct cells and helps to transport water from the collecting duct to the blood in the renal vein.
