We investigate how the dynamics of a mathematical model of a nephron depend on the precise form of the delay in the tubuloglomerular feedback loop. Although qualitative behavioral similarities emerge for different orders of the delay, we find that significant quantitative differences ocuur. Without more knowledge of the form of the delay, this places restrictions on how reasonable it is to expect close quantitative agreement between the mathematical model and experimental data.
