02. nephron structure: renal corpuscle

The renal structures that carry out the kidney’s vital functions are not visible to the naked eye. These structures can only be seen with a light or electron microscope. Even then, serial parts and computer reconstruction are needed to obtain a complete picture of the nephron’s functional anatomy and associated blood vessels.
Nephrons take a basic blood filtrate and turn it into urine. Until urine is formed for disposal, several changes occur in various sections of the nephron. The word forming urine will be used to describe the filtrate as it is transformed into true urine in the following parts. The primary function of the nephron population is to maintain plasma homeostasis and excrete possible toxins via urine. Filtration, reabsorption, and secretion are the three main functions they perform. They also have secondary roles that regulate blood pressure (via renin production), red blood cell production (via the hormone EPO), and calcium absorption (via the hormone EPO) (via conversion of calcidiol into calcitriol, the active form of vitamin D).

Nephron 5- renal corpuscle

The prevalence of Bowman’s parietal epithelium metaplasia was investigated in human kidney parts taken at autopsy. To see whether there was a connection between clinical disease, histopathological changes in organ systems, and Bowman’s capsule metaplasia, autopsy records were reviewed. The sections included both sexes in nine age groups ranging from 2 to 87 years old. The sections were embedded in paraffin, sectioned at 6 microns, and stained with hematoxylin and eosin after being fixed in neutral formalin. A total of 129 kidney parts were examined, representing 129 individuals. The parietal layer of Bowman’s capsule was graded as regular (squamous) or metaplastic after counting 100 renal corpuscles per segment (cuboidal). Bowman’s capsule metaplasia was found in 69 (53%) of the 129 kidneys studied. Bowman’s capsule metaplasia was found in 51 (59%) of the 87 male kidneys. Bowman’s capsule metaplasia was found in 18 (43 percent) of the 42 female kidneys studied. Bowman’s parietal layer metaplasia was observed in 4% of renal corpuscles in metaplasia-affected kidneys. The lesion was observed in both sexes and in people of all ages. There was no common clinical condition associated with the metaplastic lesion, but metaplasia of Bowman’s parietal epithelium was often present with hepatic congestion and/or fatty changes, according to autopsy records.

Bowman’s capsule (also known as the Bowman capsule, capsula glomeruli, or glomerular capsule) is a cup-like sac at the beginning of the tubular portion of a nephron in the mammalian kidney that filters blood to form urine. In the sac, there is a glomerulus. The Bowman’s capsule collects fluids from the glomerulus’s blood.
Ultrafiltration (or glomerular filtration) is the method of filtration of blood in the Bowman’s capsule, and the average rate of filtration is 125 ml/min, or 80 times the usual blood volume.

Any proteins with a molecular weight of less than 30 kilodaltons can move freely through the membrane, while negatively charged molecules face additional challenges due to the negative charge of the basement membrane and podocytes.

Bowman’s capsule

Toluidine blue was used to stain the glomerulus in this image. Toluidine blue is used to mark the basement membrane in the glomerulus by staining nucleic acids and polysaccharides blue or purple. Start by recognizing Bowman’s capsule’s visceral and parietal layers. These two layers are made up of a single continuous sheet of cells that are structurally and functionally distinct. Bowman’s capsule and squamous cells make up the parietal layer, while podocytes, which have a more cuboidal form and play a part in blood filtration, make up the visceral layer. It’s worth noting how the podocytes are positioned between the capillaries and Bowman’s room. Mesangial cells are in charge of producing the basement membrane-like material that supports the glomerulus’ structure. Their prominent nuclei within the glomerulus make them easy to spot.
