The renal corpuscle is composed of the Bowman's capsule and the glomerulus, the site of filtration. The renal tubule is composed of the proximal convoluted tubule, the loop of Henle, and the distal tubule. This is where reabsorption and secretion takes place as the filtrate is converted into urine.

The nephron, the main functioning unit of the kidneys, is composed of two parts; the renal corpuscle, or Bowman's capsule, which filters blood plasma and the renal tubules. Filtered plasma passes through Renal Tubule. Renal corpuscle is composed of two components: the Glomerulus and Glomerular Capsule. Glomerulus is fenstrated type of capillary. Glomerular capsule filters blood plasma. Glomerular Capsule surrounds Glomerulus capillaries. Glomerulus capsule's inner layer is composed of epithelial cells called podocytes. The outer layer is composed of simple squamous epithelium
The renal corpuscle is made up of the Bowman's capsule and the glomerulus. It is the blood filtering apparatus. The filtrate leaves the corpuscle and makes its way through the rest of the apparatus via the tubule. The tubule is used for reabsorption and secretion.

renal corpuscle and renal tubule


and renal tubules (proximal convoluted tubule, loop of henle and distal tubule)


They are located in the renal medulla and are made of a renal corpuscle and a renal tubule.


nephron consists of a cluster of blood capillaries called glomerulus and a renal tubule. now the renal tubule is swollen at one end and forms Bowman's capsule. the glomerulus surrounds this capsule and they together are called renal corpuscle. so the nephron consists of a renal corpuscle and a renal tubule. and the renal tubule is convoluted at first (also covered by blood capillaries) , then forms a U shape called "loop of henle" .then it ends into the collecting duct.



Nephron is the basic structural and functional unit of the kidney. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nephron It is composed of a renal corpuscle and a renal tubule. The renal corpuscle consists of a glomerulus and the Bowman's capsule. It is the nephron's initial filtering component. The components of the renal tubule are the proximal convoluted tubule, loop of Henle and the distal convoluted tubule.


Each nephron is composed of an initial filtering component (renal corpuscle) and a tubule specialized for reabsorption and secretion(renal tubule)


Each one consists of a renal corpuscle and a renal tubule which carry out the functions of the nephron. The renal tubule consists of the convoluted tubule and the loop of Heinle http://coe.fgcu.edu/Faculty/GreeneP/kidney/nephron.html.


The nephron is the functional unit of the kidney, responsible for the actual purification and filtration of the blood. About five thousand nephrons are in each kidney, and each one consists of a renal corpuscle and a renal tubule which carry out the functions of the nephron. The renal tubule consists of the convoluted tubule and the loop of Heinle.

A nephron contains a renal corpuscle and glomerulus. This is a cluster of blood cells.
