Nephrons are the “functional units” of the kidney; they cleanse the blood of toxins and balance the constituents of the circulation to homeostatic set points through the processes of filtration, reabsorption, and secretion

Nephron, functional unit of the kidney, the structure that actually produces urine in the process of removing waste and excess substances from the blood.

Renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system it is physiological system that regulates blood pressure in response to changes in blood volume. Renin is a hormone produced by the kidneys.

Low magnification micrograph of the renal cortex. The presence of renal corpuscles stands out, in which, even at this magnification, the uriniferous or Bowman space located around the glomerular vascular tuft can be clearly distinguished. The space between the glomeruli is occupied by sections of convoluted tubes. Crossing the image obliquely, two groups of tubules sectioned longitudinally are observed. They are the medullary rays, also called columns or pyramids of Ferrein. They contain collecting ducts and straight portions of the proximal and distal convoluted tubules.

The kidneys are bean-shaped organs that serve several essential regulatory roles in vertebrates. Their main function is to regulate the balance of electrolytes in the blood, along with maintaining pH homeostasis.
