Kidneys and collecting tubule

Postby snezka18 » Fri May 06, 2011 4:37 pm

I might be posting quite regularly as I am doing my revision for physiology :)

I am just wondering about the collecting tubule, is it the same as collecting duct or is it somehow part of it, or could that relate to distal convoluted tubule?

I would very much appreciate if anyone knows the answer :)

I think I can help you. Even I had the same question.
According to what I know collecting tubule leads to the collecting duct. And the collecting tubule is connected to the Distal convoluted tubule on the other end.
That's how it is.
