Flashcards in GI Deck (61)
I cells (duodenum, jejunum)
G cells (antrum of stomach)
Glucose-dependent Insulinotropic peptide source
K cells (duodenum, jejunum)
S cells (duodenum)
D cells (pancreatic islets, GI mucosa)
Parasympathetic ganglia in sphincters, gallbladder and small intestine
Intrinsic factor source
Parietal cells (stomach)
Gastric acid source
Parietal cells (stomach)
Chief cells (stomach)
Mucosal cells (stomach, duodenum, salivary glands, pancreas)
Brunner glands (duodenum)
-Increase pancreatic secretion
-Increase gallbladder contraction
-Delay gastric emptying
-Increase sphincter of Oddi relaxation
-Increase gastric H+ secretion
-Increase growth of gastric mucosa
-Increase gastric motility
-Stimulate ECL cells to release Histamine (which also stimulates parietal cells to release H+)
Glucose-dependent insulinotropic peptide action
Exocrine: decrease H+ secretion
Endocrine: increase insulin release
Produces migrating motor complexes (MMCs)
-Increase pancreatic HCO3- secretion
-Decrease gastric acid secretion
-Increase bile secretion
-Decrease gastric acid and pepsin secretion
-Decrease fluid secretion from pancreas and small intestine
-Decrease gall bladder contraction
-Decrease insulin and glucagon release
Nitric oxide action (in GI)
-Increase SM relaxation (including LED)
-Increase intestinal water and electrolyte secretion
-Increase relaxation of intestinal smooth muscle and sphincters
Intrinsic factor action
Binds Vitamin B12 so that it can be taken up in the terminal ileum
Gastric acid action
Decrease stomach pH
What is increased with fatty acids and amino acids ONLY?
What is increased with fatty acids, amino acids, and oral glucose?
Glucose-dependent insulinotropic peptide
What is increased with stomach distention/alkalinization, amino acids (phenylalanine and tryptophan), peptides, and vagal stimulation but decreased by stomach pH <1.5?
What is increased in fasting state?
Name a motilin receptor agonist used to stimulate intestinal peristalsis?
What is increased by acid and fatty acids in lumen of duodenum?
What is increased by acid but decreased by vagal stimulation?
What is increased by distention and vagal stimulation and decreased by vagal input?
What are the symptoms of a VIPoma?
What is increased by histamine, Ach, and gastrin but decreased by somatostatin, GIP, prostaglandin and secretin?
What is increased by vagal stimulation and local acid?
What is increased by pancreatic and biliary secretion with secretin?
What are two pathological things that can lead to increased gastrin?
-Chronic PPI use
What is glucose-dependent insulinotropic peptide known as?
Why is GIP significant for oral v. IV glucose?
Oral glucose load used more rapidly than IV due to GIP
Why is secretin important?
Increases HCO3- to allow pancreatic enzymes to function in duodenum
What is one of the underlying causes of achlasia?
Loss of NO secretion leading to increased LES tone
Why does atropine not block G cells?
vagal stimulation of G cells is through GRP not Ach (like with parietal cells)
Where is gastrin released?
into circulation (NOT into stomach)
What does falciform ligament connect?
Liver to anterior abdominal wall
What is contained in falciform ligament?
Ligamentum teres hepatis (fetal umbilical vein)
What does the hepatoduodenal ligament connect?
liver to duodenum
What does the hepatoduodenal ligament contain?
Portal triad (proper hepatic artery, portal vein, common bile duct)
What does the gastroheptic ligament connect?
liver to lesser curvature of stomach
What does the gastroheptic ligament contain?
What separates greater and lesser omental sacs on the left?
What separates greater and lesser sacs on the right?
What does the gastrocolic ligament connect?
greater curvature and transverse colon
What does the gastrocolic ligament contain?
What does the gastrosplenic ligament connect?
greater curvature and spleen
What does the gastrosplenic ligament contain?
Left gastroepiploic vessels
What does the splenorenal ligament connect?
Spleen to posterior abdominal wall
What does the splenorenal ligament contain?
Splenic artery and vein; tail of pancreas
