Q. 6

Which substances will be present in the glomerular filterate from the kidneys of a mammal?

A. (a)

B. (b)

C. (c)

D. (d)

Answer :

The process of glomerular filtration, also called ultra-filtration occurs in the renal corpuscle (glomerulus + Bowman’s capsule) through numerous tiny filtration slits present in the basement membrane of renal corpuscle. This filtration is so fine that every component of plasma, except proteins (as they are large in size) pass into the Bowman’s capsule. Therefore, the filtrate from the kidneys of a mammal contains glucose and salts, but not proteins.
