Caption: Light microscopy of a glomerulus in the kidney. Glomeruli also known as renal corpuscles, are formed by convoluted loops of branched capillaries enclosed by a capsule arising from a blind-ending renal tubule. Capillary blood is filtered as plasma into the space surrounding the capillary loops and is called Bowman's space. This primary filtrate enters the renal tubule system termed nephrons where reabsorptions, secretions, and fluid exchanges result in the production of urine by the kidney. Magnification x580 when narrow width printed at 10 cm.
