Figure 4: Spatial arrangement of a collecting duct (purple) and their connected connecting tubule (green, blue, white, pink, orange, and yellow). Most of the connecting tubule join to the collecting duct through the arcade (green) at middle to the superficial cortex. Connecting tubule (white) from the nephrons located at the superficial cortex join the collecting duct directly. (a) A schema showing the pattern of a cortical collecting duct connecting to the connecting tubule (in colors); (b) and (c) the higher magnifications of the left frameworks, showing three-dimensional representations of a collecting duct and the connected connecting tubule (b), and the continuous distal convoluted tubule (dashed lines) in same color as the connecting tubule (c). Gray balls for renal corpuscles
