This is an image showing the structure of nephron. Nephron is the basic structural and functional unit of kidney, the structure that actually produces urine in the process of removing waste and excess substances from the blood. Each nephron is a long tubule, at one end this tube is closed, expanded, and folded into a double-walled cuplike structure, called the renal corpuscular capsule, or Bowman’s capsule, encloses a cluster of microscopic blood vessels—capillaries—called the glomerulus. Arcuate artery supplies the blood to the kidney which is collected by arcuate vein
