Chapter 41: Animal Nutrition Purpose—to understand the anatomy and function of animal digestive systems What you MUST know in Ch 41: Intracellular vs. extracellular digestion Comparative digestive systems (hydra, earthworm, insect, vertebrate) Alimentary canal enzyme areas, type of food digested, end product Peristalsis Hormonal control of enzyme secretion Fat digestion and transport Ruminant digestion (read on your own; p 808) Your digestive system exists to break down food, which is needed for fuel for metabolism & cellular work (to make ATP) synthesis of needed organic molecules o we need 20 amino acids; about half we cannot make essential nutrients (fatty acids, vitamins, minerals) you cannot make yourself (see tables 41.1, 41.2, p 795-796) Organic macromolecules…again! By now, this should be obvious: Starches are broken down into glucose Proteins are broken down into amino acids Fats (lipids) are broken down into glycerol & fatty acids Nucleic acids are broken down into nucleotides intracellular digestion —occurs in food vacuoles within a cell, in which enzymes break down food by hydrolysis

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
