solely serous secreting salivary gland
These cells in the duodenum are activated mainly by fat (or amino acids) and release CCK to increase pancreatic enzyme release

the parasympathetic nervous system cause vasodilation by using which NT?
This enzyme is bound to the duodenal epithelial cells and activates trypsin
T/F: In addition to GRP, amino acids and peptides can stimulate G cells to release gastrin.
This hormone activates the CFTR channel
this phase of digestion occurs when a stimulus from the stomach influences function of the small intestine and other portions of the GI tract.
Although, sympathetic innervation acts to activate salivary acinar cells, what prevents the release of saliva?
pavlov's classical conditioning is an example of which phase of digetion?
gland that is the main contributor to saliva (70%)
unit of salivary gland that is responsible for producing saliva
bicarbonate concentration in the exocrine pancreatic juice is ____ than plasma
Which portion of the salivon primarily receives innervation for the autonomous nervous system
T/F: In the intestinal phase, gastrin and the vagus nerve act to stimulate zymogen granule release.
T/F: The ductal portion of the salivon acts to modify the ionic composition of saliva
enzymes within salivary or exocrine glands are released in ...
this phase of digestion occurs when a stimulus from the intestine sends feedback and instructions to other portions of the GI tract
major event that occurs during the interdigestive phase
atropine inhibits ____ activation of salivary ducts
T/F: Only parasympathetic innervation stimulates saliva production
this channel is involved in cycling Cl back into the lumen of the pancreatic duct
T/F: Pancreatic acinar cells are responsible for the bicarbonate secretion of the exocrine pancreas
produces 25% of saliva
atropine inhibits ___ receptors
type of acinus that produces watery saliva that contains a amylase, lysozyme, peroxidases, and IgA

Would saliva be most plasma in high or low flow rates?
T/F: Pancreatic juice is isotonic.
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
These cells in the duodenum respond to H+ ions and release secretin in response to higher acid concetration
mucous secreting salivary gland
In the intestinal phase, this hormone acts at acinar cells to cause the release of zymogen granules
At high flow rates, which two ions dominate pancreatic juice?
Saliva is characterized by the presence of which two molecules (ions)?

Enzyme responsible for activation of most of the pancreatic proteolytic emzymes
Which neurotransmitter stimulates the release of gastrin from G cells in the stomach?
released by pancreatic ductal cells to neutralize the acidic chyme from the stomach
T/F: The ducts of the salivary gland are impermeable to water, while the ducts of the pancreas are permeable to water.
