The loop of Henle is responsible for the majority of Na+ reabsorbed by the nephron tubule.

  

The ascending limb of the loop of Henle contributes to the high osmolarity of the medullary region by depositing urea.

  

The loop of Henle deposits Na+ and C¯ in the medullary region of the kidney, increasing its osmolarity.

  

The antidiuretic hormone (ADH) acts on the loop of Henle to increase water reabsorption.
