This collecting duct is where urea and water, along with a few other unabsorbed molecules, is collected and passed down the ureter to the bladder.

The distal convoluted tubule is the portion of the nephron that empties into the collecting ducts. It is the last segment of the nephron.

collecting duct is connected to the ureters.

A nephron is composed of the Bowman's capsule, the proximal tubule, the loop of the nephron (called the loop of Henle), the distal tubule, and the collecting duct.

As blood enters a nephron through the arteriole, impurities are filtered out and emptied into the collecting duct. The purified blood exits the nephron through the venule.

Blood is purified when it enters a nephron through the artiole, impurities are filtered out and emptied into the collecting duct. The purified blood exits the nephron through the venule. Hope it helps ;)

The collecting duct system is the final component of the kidney to influence the body's electrolyte and fluid balance. In humans, the system accounts for 4-5 percent of the kidney's reabsorption of sodium and 5% of the kidney's reabsorption of water. At times of extreme dehydration, over 24% of the filtered water may be reabsorbed in the collecting duct system. Basically, it collects the urine that a nephron (a unit of kidney that filters) filters.

Bowman's capsule, henle's loop (made up of the proximal convulated tubule anddistal convulated tubule) and collecting duct.

The distal convoluted tube is part of the nephron in the kidney. The DCT as it is known filters and diffuses across a membrane much needed materials such as water and ADH. The DCT joins the collecting duct.

Aldosterone acts on the distal tubules and collecting ducts of the nephron.

Very generally, excretion is the removal of substance from the body (micturition or defecation are good examples). Tubular excretion is probably referring to excretion of (filtrate, now urine) from the collecting duct of a nephron. Beyond the collecting duct, almost no secretion or absorption occurs, hence all substrate is excreted (NOT the same as secreted).

list the parts of the nephron and describe the function of each part

Papillary duct or DCT The thing in this question that stands out to me is "part of the nephron". Actually the parts of a nephron only include renal corpuscle, proximal convoluted tuble, nephron loop, and distal convoluted tubule. I would a say the answer, if you read it the way I am taking it, is DCT. The papillary duct does follow the DCT but is not part of the nephron.

The Kidneys clean the blood by a process of Ultra filtration and Selective Re absorption. This happens in the active section of the kidney called the nephron there are thousands of these in each Kidney. The blood passes through the nephron where it is initially filtered in the Bowmans capsule then as it progresses along the Nephron to the collecting duct. The valuable substances within the blood are re absorped whereas the urea and other waste products are allowed to flow through to the collecting duct, and eventually are excreted out the body. Water reabsorption is a key role of the kidney, this occurs mainly in the loop of henle but most the way through the nephron.

The collecting duct drains the distal convoluted tubule.

The collecting duct delivers urine to the ureter. It contains the toxic waste of the body.

the cortical nephron is another type of nephron which has shorter loop of henle extended in medulla region. it has no proper function but it works like as ultra filtration etc as juxta medullary nephron perform but juxta medullary has proper function.

collecting ducts and late distal tubule. But mostly on collecting ducts.

Thoracic duct and Right lymphatic duct.The two collecting ducts that drain the lymphatic system are the right and left subclavian veins.Thoracic duct and the right lymphatic duct.

the function of the sperm duct is to carry the sperm from the testes

It is a steroid. It is an antidiuretic hormone increases the permeability of the distal convoluted tubule and collecting duct of the kidney nephron resulting in less water in the urine. The urine becomes more concentrated as water is conserved.

Blood is filtered out of the glomerulus, a "knot" of porous capillaries, into the glomerular capsule. From there the filtrate passes though the proximal convoluted tubule, the loop of Henle, and the distal convoluted tubule where the substrate concentration of the filtrate is fine tuned. The distal convoluted tubule empties into a collecting duct but that is generally not considered part of the nephron itself.

The cystic duct lies between the gallbladder and the common bile duct. Its' function is to transport bile from the gall bladder to the common bile duct.
