1. Define Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR)

Answer The amount of the filtrate formed by the kidneys per minute is called glomerular filtration rate (GFR).

2. Explain the autoregulatory mechanism of GFR.

Answer The kidneys have built-in mechanisms for the regulation of glomerular filtration rate. One such efficient mechanism is carried out by juxtabglomerular apparatus (JGA). JGA is a special sensitive region formed by cellular modifications in the distal convoluted tubule and the afferent arteriole at the location of their contact. A fall in GFR can activate the JG cells to release renin which can stimulate the glomerular blood flow and thereby the GFR back to normal.
