Learning Goal: I'm working on a anatomy discussion question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.32 Explain how the collecting duct and antidiuretic hormone regulate the volume and concentration of urine Isabella PlasenciaHuman Anatomy and Physiology IICourse Number: BSC 2086CDr. Tamara SmithDecember 10, 2021Claimed Topic:Explain how the collecting duct and antidiuretic hormone regulates the volume and concentration of urineResearch: The distal convoluted tubule and the collecting duct reabsorb fluctuating volumes of liquid and salts and are controlled by various hormones especially aldosterone, natriuretic peptide, antidiuretic hormone, and parathyroid hormone (Saladin, 2020, p.907). The antidiuretic hormone accelerates water to reabsorb to stimulate the inclusion of what is called “water channels” into kidney tubules. The water goes through tubular cells and into the blood and causes a reduction in plasma osmolarity but an enhanced osmolarity of urine (Vivo, 2021). In the distal convoluted tubule there and the collecting duct, there are two forms of cells which are the principal cells and the intercalated cells. In these two forms of cells, there are different functions. The principal cells are plentiful, and have receptors, and are participating in water and salt stability. The intercalated cells do not have as many of the principal cells. The intercalated cells reabsorb K+ and produce H+ into the tubule. The antidiuretic hormone enhances the absorbency to the water of the distal convoluted tubule and collecting duct and affects increased water retaining and reduces the volume of urine. The distal convoluted tubule and collecting duct are two sections of the kidney nephron and are very important. Fluid in the distal convoluted tubule and collecting duct contains 20 percent of water and 7% of the salts from the glomerular filtrate (Saladin, 2020, p.907). Critical Thinking: This topic on how the collecting duct and how the antidiuretic hormone regulates the volume and concentration of urine is a fascinating topic to learn about. This is a topic I knew about but was not informed as much as I know now as I researched this topic. I learned a lot on this topic, and I encourage others to learn and engage in this topic. I find it very interesting how the convoluted tubule can be damaged, causing cell death. The human body works mysteriously interesting.WC:331References:Saladin, K.S., Gan, C.A., & Cushman, H. N.
