Caption: Animation showing blood flowing in a glomerulus of a kidney, showing podocytes (blue and purple) surrounding a capillary. A glomerulus is a network of coiled capillaries encased in podocyte cells. Podocytes have branching interleaved processes (pedicels) that wrap around the capillaries to form filtration slits, which allow efficient filtration of small waste molecules from the blood, and retention of larger molecules. Filtration is regulated by opening and closing of the slits. After the reabsorption of certain substances elsewhere in the kidney, the waste liquid is transported to the bladder as urine.
