Function of the kidney and the nephron in the lesser spotted dogfish, Scyliorhinus canicula, was investigated by clearance, renal tubular micropuncture and ferrocyanide infusion techniques. 70% of the glomerular filtrate was reabsorbed within the renal tubule, producing slightly hypotonic urine. Glomeruli were: perfused and filtering (F); arterially perfused but not filtering (NF); or non-arterially perfused and hence not filtering (NP). Adrenaline reduced the proportion of filtering glomeruli… CONTINUE READING
