The histological investigation of the kidney of the skate Raja erinacea revealed a thin cap of dorsal bundles, which contain segments of single nephrons that are arranged separately in a countercurrent manner, and a large ventral zone, where the second proximal segments (PII) and parts of the lower nephron are located. This zonation is apparent in fresh, unfixed material and makes it possible to separate small tissue samples under a dissecting microscope. The osmolality in both zones does not… CONTINUE READING
