Digestive System Micro Anatomy(cont.) * Surface epithelium- consist of simple columnar epithelium containg * absorptive cells * goblet cells- mucus producing * hormone producing cells * paneth cells. * Microvilli * these are the cytoplasmic extensions on the surface of the columnar epithelium that line the SI that allow for an even greater surface area for absorption. Micro Anatomy(cont.) * intestinal glands - produce and secrete intestinal juices. * Paneth cells - found in the deep part of the intestinal gland. * Secrete lysozyme - enzyme that kills bacteria * helps to regulate the bacteria population * can be phygocytic * Hormone producing cells- also found in the deep parts of the gland and secretes

Mechanical Digestion in the Small Intestine * Has two types of movement * Segmentation- the major mode of movement that involves localized segmental contraction in areas containing chyme, creating a sloshing effect. * Parasympathetic dependent * Peristalsis- propels the chyme through the digestive tract...
