Proximal convoluted tubule

The proximal convoluted tubule is the longest and most convoluted segment of the nephron. Its cells possess an apical brush border that provides a much greater surface area for reabsorption and secretion. Most of the components of the glomerular filtrate are reabsorbed in the proximal tubule.

Loop of Henle

The loop of Henle is a hairpin loop of the nephron that extends into the medulla and consists of thick and thin segments.

Distal convoluted tubule

The distal convoluted tubule is lined by cuboidal cells that reabsorb sodium and chloride from the tubular filtrate.
