Organ that secretes Bile, which is secreted into the duodenum during digestion,In the upper right quadrant, Largest organ in human body.
Organ that secretes hydrochloric acid and pepsinogen., Saclike organ that chemically mixes and prepares food received from the esophagus. Makes CHYME for next step in digestion.
Most digestion and absorbtion take place in this part of the small intestine. The part of the small intestine between the stomach and the jejunum.
Stomach mashes the food into a paste. Chyme is the paste., Mixture of stomach fluids and food produced in the stomach by contracting stomach muscles.
LOWER ESOPHAGEAL SPHINCTER (LES)
Gastric reflux involves this valve., cardiac sphincter, in GI tract, Keeps ingested material moving in one direction, terminal portion of esophagus.
Mechanically breaks a large fat globule into many smaller fat globulles., A digestive juice secreted by the liver and stored in the gallbladder.
Enzyme that splits fats into fatty acids and glycerol., Pancreatic enzyme necessary to digest fats
Hormone secreted by the walls of the duodenum, stimulates the pancreas to secrete potent digestive enzymes.
Hormone secreted by the walls of the duodenum, stimulates the pancreas to secrete a bi-carbonate rich secretion.
Sucrase, An enzyme that digests sucrose into simple sugars. Lactase,enzyme that catalyzes breakdown of lactose into glucose and galactose, Maltase, a digestive enzyme that breaks maltose into glucose.
chyme tioTHE EPIGLOTTIS
Covers the epiglottis, thereby preventing the entrance of food and H2O into the respiratory structures.
WHAT BEST DESCRIBES EMULSIFICATION
LARGE FATTY GLOBULE IS MECHANICALLY BROKEN INTO SMALLER FAT GLOBULES.
WHAT RATE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE APPENDIX
REGULATES THE RATE AT WHICH THE CONTENTS OF THE ILIUM ARE DELIVERED TO THE CECUM.
THE CHEMICAL AID UNRAVELS DIETARY PROTEIN AND DECREASES BACTERIA IN THE STOMACH
HCI- hydrochloric acid, lowers stomach ph to 1-3. doesn't break down food but kills ingested microorganisms
PTYALIN IS AMYPLASEpathway of blood flow through the portal vein from the gastrointestinal system to the liver, extensive system of veins, begins in the portal circulation veins, goes through the liver, ends in the inferior vena cave, ends the vital branch of systemic circulation, - Takes blood from veins of stomach, small intestines, spleen, pancreas, gallbladder, colon, rectum, and brings it to the liver., _________ is the portion of the circulatory system that uses a large vein (portal vein) to carry nutrient-rich blood from capillaries in the intestines and portions of the stomach to the liver.,
SALIVARY AMYPLASE ( in mouth, released by salivary glands, Begins chemical digestion of carbohydrates by breakingdown of starch, released in mouth, reaks down food with teeth (mechanical digestion).
which of the following is true of cholecystokinin (cck)
(All THE ABOVE), SECRETED BY WALLS OF THE DUODENUM IN RESPONSE TO THE PRESCENCE OF FAT, STIMULATES THE GALLBLADDER TO CONTRACT, THEREBY DELIVERING BILE TO THE DUODENUM, ALSO STIMULATES THE PANCREAS TO SECRETE DIGESTIVE ENZYMES.
