Glomerulotubular balance, tubuloglomerular feedback, and salt homeostasis.

Reduced NaCl uptake via the NKCC2 at the macula densa leads to increased renin release, which leads to restoration of plasma volume, and to dilation of the afferent arterioles, which leads tubkloglomerular increased renal plasma flow and increased GFR.

When that blood enters the peritubular capillaries, the higher oncotic pressure increases reabsorption of filtrate from the renal tubules. Compliance Vascular resistance Pulse Perfusion.

Constricting the smooth muscle cells in the afferent arteriole, results in a reduced concentration of chloride at the MD. The Mechanisms of Body Function. Saunders, An Imprint of Elsevier.

In glomerulotubular balance, filtration at the glomerulus alters the oncotic pressure of the plasma that exits the glomerulus and flows into the peritubular capillaries. Tubuloglomerular feedback adjusts GFR to maintain a relatively constant rate of distal tubule NaCl delivery.

Intrarenal control of renal function is by tubuloglomerular feedback and by glomerulotubular balance. Consequently, the regulation of GFR also results in the autoregulation of renal blood flow. A mediating agent is released or generated as a function of changes in luminal NaCl concentration. Physiology of the kidneys and acid-base physiology. The afferent arteriole cells release renin, leading to intrarenal angiotensin II formation.

This page was last edited on 16 Decemberat The macula densa’s position enables it to rapidly alter afferent arteriolar resistance in response to changes in the flow rate through the distal nephron. Skip to main content. It seems likely that changes in GFR result in modification of the starling forces in the peritubular capillaries resulting in proportionally increased or decreased total nephronic resorption. The Tubular fluid is diluted because the cell’s walls are water-impermeable and do not lose water as NaCl is actively reabsorbed.


The critical target of the trans-JGA signaling cascade is the glomerular afferent arteriole; its response consists of an increase in net vasoconstrictor tone resulting in reductions of glomerular capillary pressure PGC and glomerular plasma flow. The drop in GFR causes a tubuloglomerular feedback-mediated arteriolar dilation, restoring GFR and also increasing renal blood flow. Views Read Edit View history. The signal eliciting the TG feedback response is affected.

Glomerulotubular balance can be thought of as an additional layer of protection if mechanisms of tubuloglomerular feedbackthat normalize rates of GFR, momentarily fail or are slow to be triggered.

The American Journal of Physiology. The macula densa uses the composition of the tubular fluid as an indicator of GFR.

Tubuloglomerular Feedback and Glomerulotubular Balance

Solvent drag sodium chloride urea glucose oligopeptides protein. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Retrieved from ” https: American Journal of Physiology. Efferent arteriolar constriction increases glomerular capillary pressure. A drop in arterial blood pressure causes both a decrease in GFR and a decrease in renal blood flow. Significance Glomerulotubular balance is a critical mechanism which protects distal segments of the nephron from being overloaded in contexts of short-term increases in Balannce.

Fluid flow through the nephron must be kept within a narrow range for normal renal function in order to not compromise the ability of the nephron to maintain salt and water balance.

Extracellular tubuloylomerular activates A1 receptors on vascular afferent arteriolar smooth muscle cells, resulting in vasoconstriction and a reduction in GFR Schnermann et al. A higher fluid flow rate in the TAL allows less time for dilution of the tubular fluid so that MD chloride concentration increases.

This initiates a cascade of events that ultimately brings GFR to an appropriate level.

In the physiology of the kidneytubuloglomerular feedback TGF is a feedback system inside the kidneys. The afferent arteriole dilates, which increases glomerular capillary pressure. Excluding loop diuretic use, the usual situation that causes a reduction in reabsorption of NaCl via the NKCC2 at the macula densa is a low tubular lumen concentration of NaCl. Increased GFR increases the oncotic pressure of the blood exiting the glomerulus.

This balance is not perfect, so increase in GFR does increase fluid delivery to the late tubule segments. Efferent arterioles appear to play a lesser role; experimental evidence supports both vasoconstriction and vasodilation, with perhaps the former in the lower range and the latter in the higher range of NaCl concentrations 2.

The TGF mechanism is a negative feedback loop in which the chloride ion concentration is sensed downstream in the nephron by the macula densa MDcells in the tubular wall near the end of TAL and the glomerulus. The mechanistic basis of glomerulotubular balance is poorly understood but appears to act completely independently of neuroendocrine regulatory mechanisms and is likely an intrinsic property of the nephron itself.
