    Excerpt: ... LAB 11 THE MAMMALS Answers to the lab manual questions: How may a plant diet influence the structure and functions of a rat's digestive system? (11-4) (This question relates to the 4th question below) The length of the digestive tract of a vertebrate is related to its diet. Herbivores require longer tracts because plant material is harder to digest (requiring more time) than meat (muscle tissue). The longer the tract, the more time it takes for the food to pass through it, and the more time available for digestion and absorption. So, if a rat's diet were largely plant material, they may evolve longer tracts with a large caecum. This is true for rabbits and other herbivorous vertebrates. Why would protein-digesting enzymes in the stomach normally be inactive? (11-4) To prevent digestion of the lining of the stomach. What is the role of the sodium bicarbonate released by the pancreas into the small intestine? (11-5) To neutralize the acidic secretions of the stomach that are entering the small intestine. Th ...

When sodium bicarbonate is added the band becomes darker green. The band makes its way down the tube farther and farther as each solvent drip is allowed to occur. Also, the cotton is spotted green during the hexane solvent drip. The importance and meaning of these observations is explained in the results.

Part 3: Digestion and Absorption in the Intestinal Tract Biology 1F25 for Biology Non-Majors The People Who Prepared This Lecture The Duodenum Harry Peery Jeff Stuart 1 First Problem: Protect against HCl If HCl from the stomach is not neutralized, it will eat holes in the intestinal tract. NOT GOOD! Brunner's glands secrete copious amounts of mucus to protect the first part of the duodenum. Second Problem: Neutralize the HCl In response to HCl, the intestinal hormone prosecretin is released by S cells into the intestinal lumen. It is activated by HCl to become secretin Secretin is absorbed through the intestinal wall and does the following: It inhibits gastric secretion It stimulates the production of a fluid high in NaHCO3 ( sodium bicarbonate ) by the pancreas Relationship of Stomach, Pancreas and Liver Branch of hepatic portal vein coming from both stomach and pancre ...

    Excerpt: ... . Examining physical properties: Obtain ten pieces of paper and label seven of them sulfur, iron fillings, sodium bicarbonate , sodium chloride, sucrose, sand, and magnesium. Use a spatula to put a portion of each substance on it's corresponding paper. For each of the substances, observe physical state, color, odor, solubility in water, and effect of magnet and record in a table. To test in water, add a small amount of substance in about 5mLof water and mix, then observe results. B. Physical changes: On an extra clean sheet of weighing paper, mix the remaining samples of sand and salt. Record the observations of this new substance using the same properties in part A. Use about 10mL of water for the solubility test. Carefully decant the liquid from the tube which contains the salt and sand into an evaporating dish. Place the dish on top of a 250mL beaker half filled with water and place on a heating pad until the water boils and water is evaporated. C.

Duodenum- The first part of the small intestine which receives the chyme and additional digestive agents from the pancreas, gall bladder and wall of the duodenum. Pancreas- a glandular organ which has both endocrine and exocrine functions. Endocrine- secretion of insulin and glucagon for regulation of blood sugar and metabolism. Exocrine- 1) Sodium bicarbonate -acts as a buffer to neutralize the harsh acidic condition of chyme. 2) Amylase-breaks carbohydrates into sugars, requires alkaline pH to function. 3)Lipase-hydrolyzes fats in to components. It works in conjunction with bile. 4) Trypsin and chymotrypsin which act as additional endopeptidases 5) Carboxypeptidase and aminopeptidase enzymes which hydrolyze only terminal amino acids(exopepitidase). Note: all enzymes are secreted in inactive form and are activated by enterokinase. 6) Nucleaseswhich hydrolyze DNA and RNA into nucleotides for absorption.

This material once again immediately turns to the color blue when it again mixes with water. B2. Decomposition of Sodium Bicarbonate 2NaHCO3 = CO2 + H2O + Na2CO3 This is a decomposition reaction in which sodium bicarbonate will give off carbon dioxide allowing us to test the reaction for calcium hydroxide. B2.A Ca(OH)2 + CO2 = CaCO3 + H2O By bubbling gaseous CO2 off of the heated decomposition of NaHCO3 will cause a cloudy creation of CaCO3. CO2 + H2O = H+ + HCO3After continued bubbling, the CaCO3 dissolves to form a complexion reaction creating two ions. B2.B This is the same reaction as experiment A, but this time a bromthymol blue indicator is able to show the neutralization part of this reaction. The solution starts out a fairly basic but after about a minute it turns to green, showing neu ...

    Excerpt: ... tion o Activation of protein-digesting enzymes in the small intestine Enzymatic digestion in the human digestive system Hormones help coordinate the secretion of digestive juices into the alimentary canal Amino acids or fatty acids in the duodenum trigger the release of cholecystokinin (CCK), which stimulates the release of digestive enzymes from the pancreas and bile from the gallbladder. Enterogastrone secreted by the duodenum inhibits peristalsis and acid secretion by the stomach, thereby slowing digestion when acid chyme rich in fats enters the duodenum. Gastrin from the stomach recirculates via the bloodstream back to the stomach, where it stimulates the production of gastric juices Secreted by the duodenum, secretin stimulates pancreas to release sodium bicarbonate , which neutralizes acid chyme from stomach. The small intestine is adapted to maximize nutrient absorption Amino acids and sugars Pass through the epithelium of the small intestine and enter the bloodstream After glycerol and fa ...
