46.2 General Principles of Digestion and Absorption
All major food sources give sugars, bases and phosphates, but components of nucleic acids can be used to make DNA, RNA, and ATP, and a strict vegetarian diet must find ways to balance the protein required in only trace amounts.
Without regular con such as cows, the capacity to synthesise these small amounts has evolved, leading to serious health problems.
Linoleic acid is important for an animal's health because it is converted in cells to another acid called ara chidonic acid.
Prostaglandins are found in pain, blood clotting, and smooth muscle contraction.
Explain why one process is more common than the other.
Predicting the functions of parts of the alimentary canal is difficult.
Some vitamins are water-soluble and fat-soluble.
The water-soluble vita from the food must be broken down so that the vitamins can be absorbed by the cells of the GI tract.
Some of the major principles of digestion and degree in adipose tissue will be examined.
Not all animals need the same vitamins in absorption.
There are health consequences associated withcellular digestion.
The food is separated from the rest of the cytoplasm in food vacuole as cofactors for or components of some enzymes and other proteins.
The macromolecules in the food are required for bone, muscle, and are digested by hydrolytic enzymes into monomers, which are the building nervous system function.
Changes in electrical differences across the plasma can be used directly by that cel, thanks to the sodium and potas blocks of polymers which are moved out of the vacuole to sium.
Because of the critical nature of cellular digestion, it is especially important for heart, skeletal, and metabolic demands of an active animal.
Some animals don't need all of the vitamins.
Many mammals can synthesise vitamins.
In the simplest form of digestion.
Food enters the in the body and serves as a system to store and digest food in the body, where it is absorbed into the animal's body.
After a human eats a pizza, it takes a few hours for the food to be fully absorbed by the body.
After a python eats, it takes a few weeks for the food to be fully absorbed by the body.
Stunted growth; loss of certain (oysters); grains sperm development; cofactor for many sensations like taste; impaired immune metabolism; required for certain function.
The undigested material regulates the stomach processes.
The cells are involved in the expulsion of blood.
The alimentary canal has different regions for different species.
Because of these specializa, the tions, digestive processes requiring acidic conditions, for example, can not be used in other animals.
The ability of some animals to store food in a stomach is known as smooth muscle.
They can eat less frequently because of the contractions.
The canal is lined with cells.
The ali lial cells that line the specialized portions of the alimentary canal must be absorbed by the epithe.
