. PCT is responsible for


A: Filtration of blood

B: Maintenance of glomerular filtration rate

C: Reabsorption of salt only

D: Selective reabsorption of glucose, amino acids, NaCl and H2O

 

Best Answer

Explanation : 

Cuboidal epithelium with a brush boundary lines the proximal convoluted tubule (PCT). 

It expands the reabsorption surface area. 

PCT reabsorbs almost all vital nutrients, as well as 70-80% of electrolytes and water. 

The PCT is in charge of selective glucose, amino acid, NaCl, and H20 reabsorption. 

'Selective reabsorption of glucose, amino acids, NaCl, and H20' is the right answer.

Final Answer :

Hence, the correct answer is option D : Selective reabsorption of glucose, amino acids, NaCl and H20.
