1 Chapter 34

2 I.Digestion A.mechanical/chemical breakdown of food  nutrients  absorbed into blood 1.mechanical a.initial, physical breakdown of food into small pieces b.does not change chemical make-up of food c.mouth and stomach 2.chemical a.breakdown of food into smaller chemical units (nutrients) b.changes chemical make-up of food c.mostly small intestine B.nutrition refers to the properties and functions of nutrients C.absorption nutrients transported into bloodstream across inner wall of small intestine D.extracellular digestion 1.occurs outside of cells may be within or outside of organism’s body o if inside, then in a digestive system 2.most common (incl. humans) E.intracellular digestion 1.occurs within cells 2.less common single-celled organisms

3 Intracellular digestion in Paramecium

4 II.Digestive Systems A.incomplete (sac-like) lack separate openings for food entering and waste exiting o gastrovascular cavity An incomplete digestive system in a gastrovascular cavity

5 Fig Incomplete digestive tract of a planarian

6 B.complete (tube-within-a-tube) 1.found in most animals (incl. humans) 2.separate openings for food entering and waste exiting 3.invertebrate examples a.earthworm mouth  pharynx  esophagus  crop  gizzard  long intestine (w/typhlosole)  anus b.insects mouthparts  foregut  midgut (w/glands)  hindgut  anus Fig Complete digestive tract of an earthworm

7 4.vertebrate examples a.sharks and bony fishes i.often very effective teeth ii.spiral valve and lengthy intestine b.amphibians and reptiles socketed teeth or fangs, Jacobson's organ c.birds i.beaks, feet, crop ii.two-part stomach gizzard and proventriculus d.mammals i.teeth types temporary and permanent incisors, canines, premolars, molars ii.ruminants animals with a 4-part stomach o rumen, reticulum, omasum, abomasum able to digest cellulose Fig Dentition among mammals

8 Ruminant digestion

9 III.Human Digestive System A.oral cavity (mouth and throat) 1.taste buds, tongue, lips, teeth 2.salivary glands secrete saliva and amylase 3.pharynx a.back of throat b.also contains nasopharynx and larynx (contains voice box) 4.swallowing a.hard palate, soft palate (with uvula), epiglottis, and glottis b.lips seal mouth  tongue presses food against soft palate c.larynx raised  bends epiglottis over glottis  forces food down esophagus Fig Swallowing

10 B.esophagus 1.transport tube with no digestive function 2.voluntary muscle at top 3.mostly involuntary smooth muscle muscle contractions called peristalsis 4.lined with mucous C.stomach 1.mostly mechanical breakdown stores and mixes food 2.very high acidity (pH 1 or less) 3.rugae  mucin lining 4.muscular valves at both ends pyloric and cardiac sphincters 5.some chemical breakdown a.pepsin b.gastric lipase Fig Peristalsis in the digestive tract

11 Fig Anatomy of the stomach

12 D.small intestine 1.three portions, all composed of smooth muscle duodenum  jejunum  ileum 2.functions a.most chemical digestion secretes and receives many digestive enzymes b.all absorption c.increased surface area for absorption i.length ii.rugae iii.villi finger-like projections lining the rugae iv.microvilli fine hairs (cellular extensions) lining the villi d.sends undigested waste material to large intestine

13 Fig Anatomy of the small intestine

14 E.large intestine (colon, bowel) 1.consists of several portions, mostly composed of smooth muscle a.ascending colon  transverse colon  descending colon  sigmoid colon  rectum  anal canal  anus b.much voluntary skeletal muscle from rectum  anus rectum contains rectal valves to hold waste in place 2.ileocecal valve muscular valve at junction of small and large intestine 3.wider and shorter than small intestine 4.caecum “dead end” pouch of tissue where small and large intestine meet 5.appendix a.small extension of tissue projecting off of caecum b.vestigial structure 6.functions a.reabsorption of water b.concentration of waste material (feces) c.provide suitable habitat for beneficial, symbiotic bacteria

15 Fig The human digestive tract

16 Fig Some structures of the large intestine

17 F.three accessory organs 1.liver a.secretes products into duodenum b.many functions i.detoxifies blood ii.stores glucose as glycogen iii.secretes many enzymes iv.produces bile emulsification of fats 2.gall bladder stores and secretes bile through the bile duct 3.pancreas a.secretes many digestive enzymes sodium bicarbonate and others b.pancreatic ducts  duodenum c.produces insulin and other hormones

18 Fig The liver, gall bladder, and pancreas

20 IV.Chemistry of Digestion A.mechanical breakdown mouth (chewing) and stomach B.chemical breakdown a.mouth, stomach, and small intestine b.hydrolysis reactions C.absorption into the bloodstream small intestine D.nutrients distributed to body tissues circulatory system E.carbohydrate digestion (esp., starches and other polysaccharides) salivary amylase  pancreatic amylase  disaccharides  maltase  monosaccharides (glucose) F.lipid (fat) digestion gastric lipase  emulsification (bile)  pancreatic lipase  fatty acids/glycerol  reform as triglycerides  join w/cholesterol  chylomicrons G.protein digestion a.proteases b.pepsin in stomach  shorter peptides  pancreatic proteases (trypsin)  even smaller peptides  peptidases  individual amino acids H.nucleic acid digestion a.nucleases and nucleosidases b.individual nucleotides absorbed into bloodstream

21 Fig Digestion and absorption of nutrients
