5 What is the Digestion? Digestion is the process by which food and drink are broken down into their smallest parts so that the body can use them to build and nourish cells and to provide energy. Digestion begins in the mouth, when we chew and swallow, and is completed in the small intestine.

6 Digestive glands: Digestive System oral cavity, esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, rectum, and anus. small gland: fundis gland, small intestinal gland large gland: salivary gland, pancreas, liver Digestive tract:

17 Taste bud These are clustered in taste buds. Each taste bud has a pore that opens out to the surface of the tongue enabling molecules and ions taken into the mouth.

18 Taste bud There are five primary taste sensations: salty sour sweet bitter Umami is the response to salts of glutamic acid,a flavor enhancer used in many processed meats and cheeses.Umami glutamic acid

19 Taste bud

20 Ⅰ Ⅰ.Salivary glands Minor salivary glands Major salivary glands Parotid, submandibular and sublingual glands

21 Functions Produce saliva, to wet and lubricate the oral cavity and initiate the digestion of carbohydrates and lipids, and protective functions Saliva Source: parotid, submandibular, sublingual salivary glands Composition: mucin, salivary amylase, bicarbonate, lysozyme

22 1. General structure

23 myoepithelial cells they are contractile epithelial cells, they are located between the secretory cells and the basement membrane. Each myoepithelial cell has long cytoplasmic processes which wrap around a secretory unit. Hence, contraction of the myoepithelial processes can squeeze secretory product from the secretory unit into its duct.


25 Serous acini

26 Mucous acini

27 Mixed acini

28 2. Type-specific structure Sublingual glands Parotid glands Submandibular glands Contain only serous acini. Serous demilunes are numerous. Have mucous acini associated with serous demilunes. Are composed almost exclusively of mucous acini.


30 Parotid glands

31 Submandibular glands

32 Sublingual glands

33 Duct system Intercalated ducts Striated ducts Excretory ducts lined by a low cuboidal epithelium, many contain myoepithelial cells. lined by columnar cells. They have prominent basal surface invaginations associated with many mitochondria. Lined simple cuboidal, Are the larger ducts that empty into the oral cavity.

42 C. Glands Glands are present throughout the fundus and corpus. 5. Stem cells 1.Surface mucous cells 2.Mucous neck cells 4.Parietal cells 6.Endocrine cells 3. Chief cells pit glands


44 1. Surface mucous cells a. They form a simple columnar epithelium that covers the gastric mucosa. b. They secrete a continuous mucous layer that prevents the proteinase solutions in the stomach.

45 2.Mucous neck cells a.They are present between parietal cells in the necks of gastric glands. b. They can secrete mucous. They are difficult to distinguish from chief cells in plain H&E stained section.

46 Diagram of a chief cell 3. Chief cells a. In the lower region of tubular glands, and have the characteristics of protein-synthesizing cells. b. The granules in their cytoplasm contain the inactive enzyme pepsinogen. pepsinogenpepsin H + Chief cell Parietal cell

47 Diagram of a parietal cell 4. Parietal cells a. Rounded or pyramidal cells, intensely eosinophilic cytoplasm. Resting---tubulovesicular---few microvilli Activity---canaliculus---more microvilli b. Parietal cells secrete HCl and Intrinsic factor

48 5.Stem cells a.Found in the isthmus and neck regions. b.These cells have a high rate of mitosis: some of them move upward to replace the pit and surface mucous cells, other cells migrate more deeply into the glands and differentiate into parietal, chief cells and etc.

49 6. Endocrine cells a. In the neck and base of gastric glands

50 Functions: food storage, digestion, regulation of delivery. Gastric juice: --Hydrochloric acid: breaks down large of food –Intrinsic factor; made by cells making acid, –Mucus: protects stomach lining from acid –Pepsinogen: with acid, breakdown the protein Slide 14.9B Copyright © 2001 Benjamin Cummings, an imprint of Addison Wesley Longman, Inc. Stomach Function

51 pernicious anaemia. Vitamin B12's primary functions are in the formation of RBC and the maintenence of a nervous system. Absorption of B12 requires the secretion of intrinsic factor. Certain people are unable to produce intrinsic factor.

52 –A thick coat of bicarbonate containing mucus coats the stomach wall. –Mucosal epithelial cells are joined by tight junctions –Damaged epithelial cells are shed & quickly replaced. What prevents the proteolytic enzymes and low pH from damaging the stomach?


54 Ⅱ. Small intestine A. Basic anatomy duodenum, jejunum, ileum Plicae circulares, villi, and microvilli increase the absorptive surface area of small intestine. Plicae circulares, villi, and microvilli increase the absorptive surface area of small intestine. Structure of small intestine


56 Figure 14.9 Slide 14.10A Copyright © 2001 Benjamin Cummings, an imprint of Addison Wesley Longman, Inc. The Wall of the Small Intestine

57 B. Mucosa 1. The epithelium of intestine villi 2. Intestinal glands (intestinal crypts) 3. Five types of cells in intestinal mucosal epithelium Absorptive cells Goblet cells Paneth’s cells Endocrine cells Microfold cells




61 a. Absorptive cells (Enterocytes) microvilli Absorption Tall columnar an oval N in the basal of the cell striated border at the apex Increasing the area

62 absorptive cell The function of the columnar absorptive cell is the absorption of water, minerals, amino acids and simple sugars.

63 Figure 14.13 Slide 14.14A Absorption of Proteins and Carbohydrates

64 Figure 14.14 Slide 14.14B Absorption of Fats

65 increasing b. Goblet cells Interspersed between the absorptive cells duodenum Goblet cell secretion of mucin. The mucous lubricates and forms a barrier which protects the mucosal epithelium from potentially noxious intraluminal substances. jejunum ileum

66 The Paneth cells occur in small groups at the base of the intestinal crypt. These have both phagocytic and secretory properties They secrete lysozyme (which dissolves the cell wall of bacteria) and secretory IgA.


68 Peyer‘s patches Appears as a dome shape area lack of villi. the covering epithelium consist of M cells. villi Peyer‘s patch

69 M cells (microfold cells) are specialized epithelial cells overlying the lymphoid follicles of Peyer‘s patches. M cells can endocytose antigens and transport them to the underlying macrophages and lymphoid cells. Which then migrate to other compartments of lymphoid system (nodes).

71 2. Intestine glands (intestine crypts) Absorptive cells Goblet cells epithelium Enteroendocrine cells Paneth’s cells Stem cells

72 Slide 14.10B Small Intestine Functions: –Digestion: neutralize acid from stomach, add digestive enzymes and bile, break proteins, carbohydrates and lipids to absorbable materials –Absorption: 95% of food absorbed here

73 BRUNNER GLANDS Location: in submucosa of duodenum.submucosa duodenum Function: protection the proximal small intestine by neutralizing the acid-containing chyme.

74 Ⅲ. Large intestine The mucous membrane does differ from that of the small intestine in several aspects: 1. There are no villi. 2. The intestinal crypts are larger, more numerous and more densely packed. 3. One-fourth of the epithelial cells are goblet cells. Thus the large intestine is well lubricated 4. There are no Paneth cells.

75 Large intestine

76 Appendix

77 Appendicitis It is thought that the opening from the appendix into the cecum becomes blocked. The lymphatic tissue in the Appendix may swell and block the Appendix. Bacteria which normally are found within the appendix then begin to invade the wall of the Appendix.

78 Homework Describe the structure of the stomach fundus gland. Describe the cell type of the small intestine.
