Excretion of Liquid Waste Chapter 49 By: Kayla Nida Why do We need this? This system is needed to allow for removal of impurities and waste from the body. Helps maintain homeostasis in the body Regulating Body temperature Regulating Blood glucose Oxygen pH concentrations How this system came to be:

Earthworms Contain Nephridia, which are similar to the human kidney. Obtain fluid from the body through the filtration system called Nephrostomes Removes salt through active transport Forms urine Insects

Have Malpighian tubules Urine is not formed by filtration Waste molecules and potassium are secreted into the tubules trough active transport Most of the potassium and water is reabsorbed into the circulatory system through the hind gut Vertebrate Kidney Kidneys first developed among bony fish Body fluids are hypotonic to surrounding sea water so water leaves their body by osmosis through the gills and

urine Drink large amounts of sea water to compensate Kidney is needed to get rid of the divalent ions, such as salt Cartilaginous Fish Kidney helps to reabsorb urea from the nephron tubule and maintain a blood urea concentration a 100 times higher than mammals Urea makes the blood isotonic to the sea water, preventing water loss Vertebrate Kidney Continued:

Kidney in Amphibians: first terrestrial vertebrate Identical to fresh water fish Makes sense because they stay in moist places Transport sodium across their skin from surrounding water Reptiles Fresh water reptiles have similar kidneys to amphibians Marine reptiles tend to lose water and obtain a lot of

salt Process similar to bony fish; eliminate excess salt through salt glands Birds and Mammals Only ones able to produce urine with a higher osmotic concentration than their body fluid Can excrete waste in small amounts so that more water can be retained in the body Human kidneys can produce urine that is more than 4.2 times concentrated as blood plasma Only ones to have loop of Henle that produces the hypertonic urine Kangaroo rat kidneys are so efficient that it never has to drink water!

Nitrogenous Wastes Nitrogen containing by-products that must be removed from the body though urine Ammonia- toxic to cells and only safe in very dilute concentrations Urea- mammals excrete ammonia in this form water soluble and can be excreted in large amounts through urine Uric acid- Humans, Apes, and Dalmatians lack enzyme uricase, which converts uric acid into a more soluble derivative and must excrete the uric acid Nitrogenous Waste

Mammalian Kidney Fist sized organ located in the lower back Juxtamedullary nephrons- long loops that go deeply Receives blood from a renal artery from which urine is produced Ureter: where urine drains and carries it to the urinary bladder Renal pelvis: mouth of the ureter when flared up Has cup-shaped extensions that

receive urine from renal tissue Tissue is split into an outer renal cortex and inner renal medulla Nephron: Structure and Filtration Each kidney contains 1 million nephrons into the medulla Cortical nephrons shorter loops Each nephron consists of a long tubule and

small blood vessels Glomerulus- a group of capillaries in the renal cortex Capillaries filter the blood Filtrate enters the first region of the nephron tubule= Bowmans Capsule Proximal convoluted Tubule- sends filtrate to the loop of Henle Fluid is then sent to the Distal Tubule, which drains

into the collecting duct All the collecting ducts merge in the medulla to empty the urine 4 functions of the Kidney Filtration Reabsorption Reabsorption and Secretion in Glomerulus

Driven by active transport and secondary active transport Reabsorbs glucose, amino acids, and other molecules needed by the body Moves out of tubules and into the blood Reabsorption Moves from the blood and into the tubule to be excreted

Involves the transport of molecules across the capillaries and kidney tubules into the filtrate Secretion Excretion Elimination of nitrogenous wastes, potassium, and other ions Urins high hydrogen concentration helps maintain the acid base balance of the blood from 7.35-7.45 Maintains blood volume and pressure because of the excretion of water More water excreted means lower blood volume

and visa-versa Important for homeostasis Hormones Control Osmoregulatory functions Include volume of blood, blood pressure, and osmolality of blood plasma Antidiuretic Hormone (ADH) Produced by hypothalamus and secreted by pituitary gland Secreted when a person is dehydrated or eats salty food, making you thirsty Causes walls of distal tubules and

collecting ducts to become more permeable to water= conserving water Aldosterone and Atrial Natriuretic Hormone Aldosterone- secreted by the adrenal cortex Stimulated by the drop in blood sodium concentration Stimulates the distal convoluted tubules and collecting ducts to reabsorb sodium, decreasing the excretion of sodium in the urine Promotes secretion of potassium to help regulate the potassium concentrations in the blood Atrial Natriuretic Hormone (ANH)

Secreted by the right atrium of the heart in response to an increase in blood volume Promotes excretion of salt and water into the blood to lower the blood volume Other Systems Depend on the Kidney The Kidneys maintain a constant internal environment When affected by disease, a rise in the blood concentration of waste products, disturbances of electrolyte balance, and failure of blood pressure regulation occur This causes other systems to develop problems because the homeostasis is thrown off Diseases with the Excretion of Liquid Waste

Kidney disease- gradual and permanent loss of kidney over time. Five stages of severity Cured by replacing the kidney, watching your diet, some antibiotics Gout- build up of uric acid in the body because the kidneys cannot process it correctly Causes joint pain and kidney stones

Diet change and antibiotics are used to help clear it Nephritis- inflammation of the nephron Can suffer permanent damage= chronic Most can be cured but severe cases have lead to death
