released by pancreatic ductal cells to neutralize the acidic chyme from the stomach
unit of salivary gland that is responsible for producing saliva

At low flow rates, which two ions dominate pancreatic juice?
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: In addition to GRP, amino acids and peptides can stimulate G cells to release gastrin.
T/F: Patients with cystic fibrosis can present with malabsorption and steatorrhea, due to a deficiency of pancreatic enzymes
this type of acinus helps to lubricate food
T/F: In the intestinal phase, gastrin and the vagus nerve act to stimulate zymogen granule release.
solely serous secreting salivary gland
t/F: the submandibular gland is a mucous secreting gland.
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
this phase of digestion occurs when a stimulus from the intestine sends feedback and instructions to other portions of the GI tract
T/F: The ducts of the salivary gland are impermeable to water, while the ducts of the pancreas are permeable to water.

Although, sympathetic innervation acts to activate salivary acinar cells, what prevents the release of saliva?
T/F: Saliva secretion is controlled by GI hormones.
These cells in the duodenum respond to H+ ions and release secretin in response to higher acid concetration
T/F: Pancreatic acinar cells are responsible for the bicarbonate secretion of the exocrine pancreas
