Taste buds are found in elevations on the dorsal surface of the tongue called papillae
What are the names of the three sections of the small intestine duodenum, jejunum, ileum
The final products of protein digestion are amino acids
Absorption of nutrients occurs primarily in the small intestine
Which hormone stimulates secretion of pancreatic juice that is rich in digestive enzymes and contraction of the wall of the gallbladder to release bile cholecystokinin

Mumps is a viral infection, inflammation, and enlargement of the parotid salivary glands
During the act of deglutition food moves from the oral cavity to the stomach

The greater omentum is the largest of the paritoneal folds True
The localized mixing contractions and relaxations of the muscularis that do not push along the GI tract is called peristalsis False
Some digestion occurs at the surface of the absorptive cells of the small intestine, rather than in the lumen True
Some digestive enzymes are released when absorptive cells slough off into the lumen of the small intestine True
Peyer's patches are found in the wall of the ileum True
Nearly all digestive enzyme precursors secreted into the GI tract are identified by having the prefix 'pro' or the suffix 'ogen' True
The round ligament is a remnant of the ductus arteriosus, a vessel found in fetal circulation False
Carbonic acid is the source for H+ (protons) that are pumped out of the parietal cells into the lumen of the stomach True
HCl is necessary for the activation and activity of pepsin in the stomach True
The hepatic portal vein delivers deoxygenated blood from the GI tract to the sinusoids of the liver True
The sight, smell, taste, or thought of food initiates the cephalic phase of gastric activity True
Both neural and hormonal factors regulate the gastric and intestinal phases of digestion True
