In the human kidney, blood filtrate is formed when it is passed to the lumen of Bowman's capsule. The renal corpuscle (or Malpighi corpuscle) filter this blood to produce the urine. This corpuscle is made of several parts, which include the Bowman's capsule and the Bowman's space, the glomerulus, and the proximal tubule.
Blood passes from the capsular space through the _____ to the renal corpuscle.
A. capillary endothelium
B. capillary endothelium and the basement membrane
C. capillary endothelium, the basement membrane, and the podocytes
D. capillary endothelium, the basement membrane, and between the foot processes of the podocytes
