    About the Lecture

    The lecture Proximal Convoluted Tubule (PCT): Correlations by Carlo Raj, MD is from the course Diseases of the Nephron.


    Included Quiz Questions

    1. Plasma
    2. Extracellular fluid (plasma and interstitial fluid)
    3. Interstitial fluid
    4. Total body water
    5. Intracellular fluid
    1. Conn’s syndrome
    2. Cirrhosis
    3. Dehydration
    4. Internal hemorrhaging
    5. Congestive heart failure
    1. Increase filtration fraction
    2. Increased glomerular filtration rate.
    3. Increased renal plasma flow.
    4. Decreased oncotic pressure in the peritubular capillaries.
    5. Increased hydrostatic pressure in the glomerular capillaries.
    1. Overall increased reabsorption from the tubular lumen.
    2. Increased hydrostatic pressure in the peritubular capillaries.
    3. All are expected changes.
    4. Decreased filtration fraction.
    5. Increased hydrostatic pressure in the glomerular capillaries.
    1. Luminal bicarbonate transporter
    2. Carbonic anhydrase type 1 on luminal membrane
    3. Carbonic anhydrase type 2 in epithelial cell
    4. Na-K-ATPase
    5. Na-H antiporter
    1. Re-absorption involves conversion to carbon dioxide then it is converted back to bicarbonate in the epithelial cell.
    2. 80% is reabsorbed in the proximal convoluted tubule.
    3. Bicarbonate is produced de novo in the distal convoluted tubule.
    4. Reabsoprtion in the proximal convoluted tubule occurs without the use of transporters.
    5. Each bicarbonate molecule reabsorbed requires excretion of one hydrogen ion.
