The role of the mammalian mesonephric kidney is not completely understood. It has been established that outpouchings of the mesonephric excretory ducts give origin to parts of the urogenital system of the adult. It is also known that mammalian mesonephric urine is formed as an ultrafiltrate. The mesonephric renal tubules have Na+/K+ adenosine triphosphatase (Na+/K+ pump), secrete phenol red, and reabsorb protein. Prior to this work, the possibility of epithelial transport of ions and metabolic… CONTINUE READING
