BACKGROUND INFORMATION The renal CCD (cortical collecting duct) plays a role in final volume and concentration of urine by a process that is regulated by the antidiuretic hormone, [arginine]vasopressin. This hormone induces an increase in water permeability due to the translocation of AQP2 (aquaporin 2) from the intracellular vesicles to the apical membrane of principal cells. During the transition from antidiuresis to diuresis, CCD cells are exposed to changes in environmental osmolality, and… CONTINUE READING
