What Is Selective Reabsorption?


Selective reabsorption is defined as the process that takes place in the proximal convoluted tubule (PCT) of the kidney, which allows important constituents in the glomerular fluid to be selectively absorbed back into the body. These compounds include glucose, amino acids, vitamins and water that were initially removed from the blood during ultrafiltration.
