DEEN, W. M., C. R. ROBERTSON, AND B. M. BRENNER. A model of glomerular ultrajltration in the rat. Am. J. Physiol. 223(5) : 1178-l 183. 1972.-A mathematical model has been developed to investigate the influence of a number of physiological variables on the net driving pressure for ultrafiltration (PuF) in the rat glomerulus. The model was used to predict osmotic pressure differences as functions of distance along a glomerular capillary for a wide range of glomerular capillary plasma flow rates… CONTINUE READING
