State the role of the distal convoluted tubule in urine formation.


Asked by Topperlearning User 15th June 2016, 10:39 AM
Answered by Expert

The distal convoluted tubule (DCT) is responsible for the absorption of HCO3 ions and the secretion of H+ ions, K+ ions and ammonia to maintain the pH of urine and the sodium-potassium balance in the blood.



DCT is also responsible for the conditional reabsorption of sodium ions and water.
