The nephron is a tube that is closed at one end and open at the other whose function it is to regulate the amount of water and the soluble substances which is basically done by filtering blood. It does this by reabsorbing the necessary parts and excreting the waste matter through urine. The nephron basically makes this urine by filtering the blood of all its small ions and molecules. The blood transfers Urea, Glucose, Inorganic salts, Amino Acids, Uric Acids and Proteins to the Nephron. The nephron basically consists of Bowman's capsule, proximal convoluted tubule, glomerulus, loop of henle, collecting tubule and distal convoluted tubule. In the nephron the blood enters with pressure and this pressure pushes the water, ions and small molecules to pass through trapping the proteins behind.
