Question:

How is ADH used in osmoregulation?

Author: MissScarrott




Answer:
- Hypothalamus detects solute concentration in the blood. - Pituitary gland will secrete more or less ADH. - Solute concentration high = more ADH released = conservation of water = more permeability to water in nephron. - Solute concentration low = less ADH released = lower conservation of water = less permeability to water in nephron.
