Nephron is the structural and functional unit of the kidney.
Its chief function is to regulate the concentration of water and soluble substances like sodium salts by filtering the blood, reabsorbing what is needed and excreting the rest as urine.
Each nephron is composed of two main structures: the glomerulus and renal (kidney) tubule.There are about1,000,000 nephronsin each human kidney.
