    The last little bit that we have in a nephron. Never thought we will get here and here we are already. One of those things during the journey at sometimes feels like it is perhaps a little taxing but once we actually get here, then it is not so bad and what do you want to do later is keep reviewing, reviewing, reviewing, be able to answer the questions that I have been posing at you. Be able to identify the patients that I have been giving you over and over again and that way the more number of times you go through this the easier it becomes and the more that you are able to integrate the material as needed. Where we are now is an epsilon or collecting duct. We took a look at this picture earlier once again quickly recap. We have the urine luminal side on the left. On the right is your blood interstitium. That green cell that you are seeing there is, in fact, the epithelial cell. One will be the principal because we are in the collecting duct, the other one would be in fact your intercalated. Next what kind of receptors do we have here when dealing with two other major hormones? We have an aldosterone receptor and we have an ADH receptor known as V2 receptor. Aldosterone is what our topic here will be as we peruse through this lecture series and aldosterone could potentially work on two sides of the cell. If it is on the side of the luminal membrane or apical, it then works on the ENAC. What does that mean to you again? Epithelial Sodium Channel whereas if it works on your sodium-potassium pump that would be on the basolateral all in the hopes of doing what,...
