Clicker question #1: The oropharynx serves as a passageway for both swallowed food and inhaled air. What type of epithelial tissue would you predict lines this passageway? → Stratified squamous Clicker question #2: The nasopharynx serves as a passageway for inhaled air. The epithelial lining of the nasopharynx moistens and warms air, secretes mucus, and propels that mucus downward to the oropharynx. What type of epithelial tissue would you predict lines this passageway? → ciliated pseudostratified columnar Clicker question #3: Using your anatomical knowledge, predict what kind of epithelium is likely to line the wall of the pulmonary alveoli → simple squamous 2.

Unformatted text preview: – accumulation of bile between meals: Liver (hepatocyes) → bile ducts (portal triad) → Right/left hepatic ducts → common hepatic duct → common bile duct → cystic duct → gall bladder – Release of stored bile from gallbladder – Why? Allows release of concentrated bile upon demand for emulsification of fats – Gall bladder → cystic duct → common bile duct → duodenum c. Pancreas 2. Functions – Exocrine secretions : Released into ducts – Acinar cells: Secrete most of the body's digestive enzymes – Epithelium of small ducts: Secretes bicarbonate to neutralize stomach acid – Endocrine secretions: Released into blood – Pancreatic islet cells...
