Trying to prove height increase...need help

... could be related to hydrostatic pressure, changes in gene expression in stem cells resulting in differentiation, osteoclast degradation enabling interstitial growth, or gene signaling from the articular cartilage/synovial joint. When the articular cartilage is loaded it results in the release ...

Re: Urine formation

... fluid in the collecting duct passes through the hyperosmotic region of the kidney medulla, water diffuses through the pores into the surounding interstitial fluid and is carried away by the blood circulation. The urine looses water and become more concentrated. Given this sequence of events ...

Loop of Henle and Vasa Recta

... descends the loop of henle it loses water to the vasa recta, causing its concentration to rise to meet the very hypertonic osmolarity of the interstitial fluids in the renal medulla (so it gets concentrated and stays that way). In the ascending loop the membrane is impermeable so water cannot ...

Loop of Henle and Vasa Recta

... the walls are impermeable, so the high concentration of solutes in the Loop is maintained despite the increasing concentration of water in the interstitial space around it. However it also has many active channels for taking up the sodium, potassium and others to increase the concentration ...
