1 Answer

Solution :-

The regulation of GFR through the kidney is autoregulatory and it is regulated by the juxtaglomerular apparatus, which is a microscopic structure located between the renal corpuscles and distal convoluted tubules of the same nephron. GFR helps in the regulation of renal blood flow and glomerular filtration rate. Fall in GFR activates juxtaglomerular cells which releases renin. By the reninangiotensin mechanism, the reabsorption of sodium and water takes place with increased blood pressure which brings GFR back to normal.
