Describe the structure of nephron with the help of diagram
A. Structure of the Nephron :

  1. Each Nephron has basically two parts : 1. Malpighian body 2. Renal tubule
    Malpighian Body:
  2. It consists of Bowman’s capsule and bunch of fine blood capillaries called glomerulus.
  3. Glomerulus develops from afferent arteriole. It gives rise to an efferent arteriole.
    Renal Tubule:
  4. It has three parts
  5. Proximal Convoluted Tubule (PCT)
  6. Loop of Henle
  7. ‘U’ shaped second or Distal Convoluted Tubule (DCT)
