Caption: Light microscopy of a glomerulus in the kidney. Glomeruli also known as renal corpuscles, are formed by an arteriole (upper left) forming convoluted loops of branched capillaries enclosed by a capsule arising from a blind-ending renal tubule at opposite pole. 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 x450 when printed at 10 cm wide.
