Glomerular filtrate moves into the Bowman's space and then into the tubular component of the nephron.
GFR, which indicates the volume of filtrate moving from the glomerular capillaries into Bowman's space per unit of time, is calculated by determining the renal clearance of a marker substance.
This value ranges from 40-60 mmHg and favors the movement of fluid from the capillary lumen to the Bowman's space (see Figure 3).
The space between the two cell layers, referred to as Bowman's space, collects the filtered fluid and solutes and directs this filtrate toward the proximal tubule.
The PT, which drains the glomemlar filtrate from Bowman's space, is located in the renal cortex.
