The part of the colon that surrounds the anus is the: Selected Answer: anal canal The function of salivary amylase is to begin the digestion of: starches The organ of the alimentary tube that is a reservoir for gradual digestion is the: stomach The part of saliva that dissolves food for tasting is: water The layer of the alimentary tube that is responsible for peristalsis is the: external muscle layer The functions of the colon include all of these except: absorption of proteins The end products of carbohydrate digestion are: monosaccharides The purpose of transamination in the liver is to: synthesize the nonessential amion acids The plasma protein produced by the liver that is important to help maintain blood volume is: albumin The liver stores the minerals: iron and copper

Select the correct option regarding types of digestion identifying that which takes places within each of the following structures. oral cavity-Both mechanical and chemical digestion pharynx - Neither mechanical nor chemical digestion salivary glands - Neither mechanical nor chemical digestion esophagus - Neither mechanical nor chemical digestion stomach - Both mechanical and chemical digestion gall bladder - Neither mechanical nor chemical digestion liver - Neither mechanical nor chemical digestion pancreas - Neither mechanical nor chemical digestion small intestine - Both mechanical and chemical digestion large intestine - Neither mechanical nor chemical digestion Match the digestive enzymes/secretions with the primary organic compounds on which they have an effect. CARBOHYDRATES amylase sucrase maltase lactase PROTEINS pepsin HCl trypsin peptidases LIPIDS/FATS bile salts lipase The colon does not have villi as part of its mucosa. Explain why villi are not necessary. Villi assist in increasing the surface area of the small intestine so that maximum absorption of nutrients can take place. The only substances that are absorbed by the colon are water and dissolved vitamins and minerals (including positive and negative ions). The surface area for the colon is adequate for this "minimal" absorption.

Name 1)the vitamins and minerals stored in the liver, and 2)the substances excreted by the liver into bile. 3)Name the fixed macrophages of the liver, and 4) explain the function. 5) What organ receives bile from the liver, what occurs to bile once received by the organ, and what purpose does bile serve? 1)B12, A, D, E, K, iron, and copper. 2) Excess cholesterol and bilirubin. 3)Kupffer cells - destroy old red blood cells and phagocytize pathogens (especially bacteria absorbed by the colon) removing them from the blood before the blood returns to the heart. 5) Gallbladder - stores and concentrates bile until needed to aid in the digestion (emulsification) of fats in the small intestine.
