PCT simply means "Percentage". PPG - points per game APPG - average points per game 2ptA - 2 point attempt 2ptM - 2 point made!

What is the pct taste test?

I remember when I was in elementary school, people in my class were going to take a PCT taste test, and I believe it was a strip placed on the tongue. If you were a PCT Taster, I believed you tasted a quite bad taste (I was reluctant to try to test). However, I do not know where exactly you would buy this, and I ask that if you are interested in buying a PCT Tasting kit that you be careful and make sure you are ordering from a reliable carrier, such as a children's science company. I remember talking about PCT tasting having to do with brussell sprouts... I could be wrong, but if you like brussell sprouts, this may mean that you aren't a PCT Taster. However, please do some research and get some second opinions on this!

After passing through the proximal convoluted tubule urine filtrate flows where?

Afferent arteriole -> Glomeruli -> Bowman's capsule (ultrafiltration) -> PCT (Highly permeable to water and solutes, brush border enzymes) -> Loop of henle (descending: water permeable, ascending: solute permeable) -> Early PCT (solute permeable) -> Late PCT and cortical collecting duct (principal cell - permeability depends on hormones ADH and aldoesterone and intercalated cell: secrtes H+)-> Medullary collecting duct (principal cell) -> Ureter -> Bladder -> Urethra

What is the name of the enzyme controlling sodium reabsorption of the kidney?

Aldosterone. Depending which part of the the PCT it's angiontensin 2, at the DCT and collecting ducts it's aldosterone.

what kidney cells perform a secretary function?

Nephrons are the basic unit of the kidney that produce urine. Their processes involve filtration, reabsorption and secretion in different places. The main part of the nephron that is involved with secretion is the Distal Convoluted Tubule (DCT). There is very little secretion in the Proximal Convoluted Tubule (PCT). Usually when you refer to secretion in the nephron, it will be in the DCT.

How does the nephron work?

a nephron works really good all right!! er nice a nephron is the basic functional and histological unit of the kidney, its composed of a renal corpuscle (bowmans capsule and glomerulus) proximal convuluted tubule, loop of henle, distal convoluted tubule. (in that order) the DCT emptied into a collecting duct which carries urine from the cortex of the kidney toward the renal papilla. the glomerulus is very permeable, it looks like a ball of yarn, and solutes are filtered across its wall into the bowmans capsule, which in turn drains to the PCT. the bowmans walls are made of simple squamous tissue, very permable. It has window like openings called fenestrae, and also filtration slits. at the PCT Na and others are removed by active transport, water passively filters. Filtrate volume is reduced. at the DCT water exits, solutes enter at the ascening LOH Na, Cl and K are transported out of the filtrate but water remains as its walls are impermeable to water.
