describe the counter current mechanism

Hi Khushboo,

Concentration of urine is achieved by the presence of a concentration gradient in the medullary interstitium. Such concentration gradient is maintained by a specialised mechanism called the counter-current mechanism. For further information on the counter current mechanism, kindly refer to lesson 3; chapter 19 of our biology study material.

Hope this helps,

Cheers!!
