T/F: The ducts of the salivary gland are impermeable to water, while the ducts of the pancreas are permeable to water.
Saliva is characterized by the presence of which two molecules (ions)?
T/F: In the intestinal phase, gastrin and the vagus nerve act to stimulate zymogen granule release.
major event that occurs during the interdigestive phase
Aldosterone acts on salivary duct cells to increase the reabsorbtion of which two ions?
At low flow rates, which two ions dominate pancreatic juice?
These cells in the duodenum respond to H+ ions and release secretin in response to higher acid concetration
Which portion of the salivon primarily receives innervation for the autonomous nervous system
this channel is involved in cycling Cl back into the lumen of the pancreatic duct
enzymes within salivary or exocrine glands are released in ...
produces 5% of saliva
In the intestinal phase, this hormone acts at acinar cells to cause the release of zymogen granules
Dehydration, fear, sleep, aand anticholinergic drugs ____ (promotes... inhibits) activation of salivary glands
this phase of digestion occurs when a stimulus from the stomach influences function of the small intestine and other portions of the GI tract.
mucous secreting salivary gland
This enzyme is bound to the duodenal epithelial cells and activates trypsin
Would saliva be most plasma in high or low flow rates?
At high flow rates, which two ions dominate pancreatic juice?
atropine inhibits ____ activation of salivary ducts
atropine inhibits ___ receptors
the parasympathetic nervous system cause vasodilation by using which NT?
t/F: the submandibular gland is a mucous secreting gland.
unit of salivary gland that is responsible for producing saliva
Which neurotransmitter stimulates the release of gastrin from G cells in the stomach?
T/F: Saliva secretion is controlled by GI hormones.
the major sympathetic receptor at acinar cells is ____.
released by pancreatic ductal cells to neutralize the acidic chyme from the stomach
This hormone activates the CFTR channel
In the gastric and cephalic phases, the pancreatic acinar cells release zymogen granules in response to activation of muscarinic cholinergic receptors as well as receptors for whic
In the gastric and cephalic phases, the vagus can act to stimulate the release of bicarbonate by the duct cells. In the intestinal phase, what stimulates the release of bicarbonate
T/F: The composition of saliva changes with the flow rate.
Where does protein digestion begin?
solely serous secreting salivary gland
T/F: In addition to GRP, amino acids and peptides can stimulate G cells to release gastrin.
bicarbonate concentration in the exocrine pancreatic juice is ____ than plasma
T/F: Saliva is usually a hypotonic solution.
the phase of digestion that begins in the brain. An example includes the origination of the salivary reflex at the site of food
T/F: Pancreatic acinar cells are responsible for the bicarbonate secretion of the exocrine pancreas
These cells in the duodenum are activated mainly by fat (or amino acids) and release CCK to increase pancreatic enzyme release
pavlov's classical conditioning is an example of which phase of digetion?
Channel involved in taking the Cl out of the lumen of the pancreatic duct, while taking Bicarbonate from the blood into the lumen of the pancreatic duct
Although, sympathetic innervation acts to activate salivary acinar cells, what prevents the release of saliva?
this phase of digestion occurs when a stimulus from the intestine sends feedback and instructions to other portions of the GI tract
T/F: Pancreatic juice is isotonic.
gland that is the main contributor to saliva (70%)
