Collecting Tubules

Collecting tubules consist of arched and straight segments made up of cells that range from cuboidal to columnar. In response to vasopressin {also known as antidiuretic hormone, or ADH) secreted by the neurohypophysis, collecting tubules become permeable to water and, thus, are important in the kidney's role in water conservation and urine concentration.
