Comments "Typical reabsorption is a highly selective process. All constituents except plasma proteins are at the same concentration in the glomerular filtrate as in the plasma. In most cases, the quantity of each material that is reabsorbed is the amount required to maintain the proper composition and volume of the internal fluid environment. In general, the tubules have a high reabsorptive capacity for substances of no value (table 14-2)."
