Movement of Substances across the Cell Membrane Movement through the cell membrane occurs in essentially two ways: passively, without an expenditure of energy, or actively, using energy-consuming processes. The cell membrane can also engulf a particle, forming a membrane-coated vesicle; this membrane-coated vesicle is moved into the cell by endocytosis or out of the cell by exocytosis. Passive Movement Passive movement of particles or ions across the cell membrane is directly influenced by…

Extracellular fluid, in biology, body fluid that is not contained in cells. It is found in blood, in lymph, in body cavities lined with serous (moisture-exuding) membrane, in the cavities and channels of the brain and spinal cord, and in muscular and other body tissues.

RENAL HANDLING OF SODIUM AND CHLORIDE, NEPHRON SITES OF SODIUM REABSORPTION, RESPONSE TO EXTRACELLULAR FLUID CONTRACTION, RESPONSE TO EXTRACELLULAR FLUID EXPANSION

RENAL HANDLING OF SODIUM AND CHLORIDE Sodium and chloride are both predominantly extracellular ions. In plasma, the sodium concentration is maintained between 135 to 145 mmol/L, whereas the chloride concentration is maintained between 98 to 108 mmol/L. Both sodium and chloride are freely filtered at the glomerulus and almost completely (approximately 99%) reabsorbed. 60% of the filtered load is reabsorbed in the proximal tubule; 30% is reabsorbed in the thick ascending limb; 7% is reabsorbed…
