Structure of Glomerulus:

This is an image showing the structure of glomerulus. A glomerulus is a network of capillaries. The side of the basement membrane that faces outwards from the capillary is lined with folds called podocytes. It serves as the first stage in the filtering process of the blood carried out by the nephron in its formation of urine. The blood plasma is filtered through the capillaries of the glomerulus into the bowman's capsule which empties the filtrate into the proximal tubule of the nephron
