  • Salivary GlandsStriated/secretory duct: simple tall columnar epith.

  • Salivary GlandsStriated /secretory duct

  • Salivary GlandsStriated/secretory ductThe secretory ducts, which are continuous with intercalated ducts, are wider and lined with a simple columnar epithelium. As the secretion from the acini passed through the secretory ducts, the epithlium can re-absorb sodium (Na+) and water from the lumen to the interstitium and transport potassium (K+) into the saliva, thus changing the consistency of the saliva. The secretory ducts drain into interlobar ducts which run between lobules.

  • Salivary GlandsInterlobular duct: excretory duct:Pseudostratified columnar epith. Stratified squamous epith.

  • Salivary glandsIncludeParotid G.Submandibular G.Sublingual G.Function:Moistening food.Carbohydrate digestion.Secrete IgA.

  • Pancreas The pancreas is a lobular organ. The pancreas has both exocrine functions (releases digestive enzyme secretions into the intestines) and endocrine functions (releases hormones into the blood).

  • Pancreas

  • Parenchyma

  • Parenchyma

  • Pancreas

  • Exocrine Pancreas

  • Exocrine PancreasIt releases the pancreatic juice.Pancreatic juice contain many kinds of enzyme:amylase: hydrolyses starch & glycogen.lipase: hydrolyzes triglycerides into fatty acids and mono-glyceridescholesterol esterase: breaks downtrypsin and chymotrypsin: hydrolyze proteins.ribonuclease & deoxyribonuclease: split nucleic acids.

  • PancreasEndocrine pancreasIslets of LangerhansScatter throughout the exocrine pancreas.Three types of cells:A-cells (20%) glucagon (glycogen glucose)B-cells (75%) insulinD-cells (5%) somatostatinCapillaries: each islet is richly supplied with blood vessels.

  • PancreasEndocrine pancreas

  • GlucagonPurpose:Assist insulin in regulating blood glucose (sugar) in the normal range Action: Forces many cells of the body to release (or produce) glucose (increasing blood sugar) Secreted in response to: Low blood glucose Secretion inhibited by: High blood glucose Disease due to deficient action: Some times nothing, sometimes hypoglycemia Disease due to excess action: Hyperglycemia Tumor called:Glucagonoma InsulinPurpose:Regulate blood glucose (sugar) in the normal range Action: Forces many cells of the body to absorb and use glucose thereby decreasing blood sugar levels Secreted in response to: High blood glucose Secretion inhibited by: Low blood glucose Disease due to deficient action: Diabetes Disease due to excess action: Hypoglycemia Tumor called:Insulinoma.

  • Liver

  • LiverGeneral IntroductionThe largest gland (--2% of body weight in adult).respectively receives both venous & arterial blood through the portal v. (--75%) & hepatic A (--25%).CT of capsule extended into the parenchyma, forming classical liver lobules.Functions as an exocrine gland (secreting bile) and other very important roles.

  • Model of Liver Lobule

  • LiverStructures of Liver lobulesix-sided prism with a central V. at its center.sheets of hepatocytes (or hepatic plates) extend radially from the central V.sinusoids between hepatic plates.Portal triads (or portal area):In the corner of lobules.

  • SinusoidsLiverDilated anastomosing venules between the hepatic plates.Blood pathway: peripherycentral V.Kupffer cells line in the wall of sinusoids.EM (endothelium of sinusoid) significant gaps; numerous fenestration; incomplete basal lamina.

  • HepatocyteLivertypically large polyhedral cells with large round centrally located nucleus.abundance of organelles relates to its functions: Mitochondria: provide energy RER: protein synthesis SER: bile formation/ metabolism of lipids and hormones/detoxification. Lysosome: defence Microbody: detoxification Inclusions: glcogen particles, lipid droplets and pigments.

  • HepatocyteLiver

  • Functions of HepatocyteLiverProduce bile.Degrade glycogen to glucose under regulation of hormones.Involve the blood lipid metabolism.Synthesize the blood plasma proteins: albumin;fibrinogen, and so onDetoxification

  • Bile CanaliculusLiverDefinition: the tubular space limited by plasma membrane of two adjacent hepatocytes.Structure:LM: network-like structures are seen by silver impregnation.EM: plasma membrane of adjacent hepatocytes forms the wall of bile canaliculi. tight junctions form seals.

  • Perisinusoidal space (Disses Spaces)LiverA space between endothelium & hepatocyte.Be visible under EM.Occupy by numerous microvilli of hepatocytes.Fill with blood plasma.have fat-storing cells (storing fat & vitamin A)A site for substance exchangeBetween the blood & the hepatocytes.
