Glomerular filtration rate
GFR
Increase
Increases in renal blood flow will [______] GFR
Decrease
Decreases in renal blood flow will [______] GFR
90-180mmHg
Renal blood flow, and therefore GFR, can be autoregulated between [__] to [___] mmHg (approximately)
Decreases, decreases
Constriction of the afferent arteriole [______] hydrostatic pressure in the glomerular capillaries. GFR therefore [______]
Increases, increases
Dilation of the afferent arteriole [______] hydrostatic pressure in the glomerular capillaries. GFR therefore [_______]
Increases, increases
Constriction of the efferent arteriole [______] hydrostatic pressure in the glomerular capillaries. GFR therefore [______]
Decreases, decreases
Dilation of the efferent arteriole [______] hydrostatic pressure in the glomerular capillaries. GFR therefore [______]

The two components of the juxtaglomerular apparatus (at the top of the ascending limb of the loop of Henle)
Macula densa
In the tubuloglomerular feedback mechanism, the flow of tubular fluid is detected by [_________]
NaCl
The compound that macula densa cells of the juxtaglomerular apparatus detect to 'guess' GFR
Myogenic and tubuloglomerular feedback
The two means of autoregulation by which GFR is kept constant
