How can I tell the Bowman's Capsule and Renal Corpuscle apart?
Bowman's capsule is a part of renal corpuscle , which is also known as Malpighian corpuscle. Bowman's capsule is initial part of nephron ; it is a double walled cup that encloses a tuft of capillaries known as glomerulus. The capsule and the capillary tuft together form the corpuscle.
Under the microscope, Bowman's capsule will always be seen as a semicircular space surrounding glomerular capillaries.
