Connecting Tubule

We just learned about the Distal Convoluted Tubule.

We've learned a lot about the renal tubule part of the nephron in the kidney that helps clean up the blood.

Another part of the renal tubule is the Connecting Tubule, also called the CNT, junctional tubule, or arcuate renal tubule.

This is the last part of the renale tubule, and helps control the amount of water and sodium in the blood.
