Introduction. The gut is an important organ responsible for digestion, absorption, and metabolism of dietary nutrients. The mucosa of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract is lined with epithelium that has the shortest turnover rate of any tissue in the body [].Maintenance of GI epithelial homeostasis depends on a complex interplay between processes involving intestinal epithelial cell (IEC.

Polyamines are ubiquitous intracellular cationic amines recognized as participants in cell proliferation and differentiation in many tissues, especially those of intestinal tract development, absorption, and biologic activity, in both sucklings and adults of the species.

The synthesis of polyamines is an active process in the mammary gland. Physiology of the Gastrointestinal Tract, Sixth Edition, a Two-Volume set, covers the study of the mechanical, physical and biochemical functions of the GI Tract by linking clinical disease and disorder, thus bridging the gap between clinical and laboratory medicine while also covering breakthroughs in gastroenterology, such as the brain-gut axis and microbiome.

Polyamine biosynthesis is associated with regulation of a number of metabolic functions including growth of cells in most of the living organisms. In mammals, ornithine is the precursor of aliphatic polyamines. Putrescine, formed by decarboxylation of the former by ornithine decarboxylase, is the first amine formed in polyamine biosynthesis.

Polyamines within the human gastrointestinal tract originate both endogenously and exogenously by means of three independent sources: polyamines which are synthesized by our own cells, those.

The gastrointestinal tract (digestive tract, alimentary canal, digestion tract, GI tract, GIT) is an organ system within humans and other animals which takes in food, digests it to extract and absorb energy and nutrients, and expels the remaining waste as mouth, esophagus, stomach and intestines are part of the gastrointestinal tract.

[Jaladanki N Rao; J -Y Wang] -- The mammalian gastrointestinal mucosa is a rapidly self-renewing tissue in the body, and its homeostasis is preserved through the strict regulation of epithelial cell proliferation, growth arrest.

Physiology of the Gastrointestinal Tract, Fifth Edition — winner of a Highly Commended BMA Medical Book Award for Internal Medicine — covers the study of the mechanical, physical, and biochemical functions of the GI Tract while linking the clinical disease or disorder, bridging the gap between clinical and laboratory medicine.

The gastrointestinal system is responsible for the Book Edition: 5. Overview. The gastrointestinal (GI) tract, also known as the alimentary canal, commences at the buccal cavity of the mouth and terminates at the can be divided into an upper GI tract (consisting of mouth, pharynx, esophagus and stomach) and a lower GI tract (small and large intestines).

The three primary functions of the GI tract are the ingestion of food and water, the digestion of. The gastrointestinal tract is one of the major organ systems which is responsible for consumption, digestion, absorption of food for nutrition as well as excretion of waste from the body.

The system is divided into upper and lower gastrointestinal tracts. It starts from the mouth and ends at the. The mucosal integrity of the gastrointestinal tract and the functioning of its accessory organs are vital in maintaining the health of your patient. The gastrointestinal tract’s accessory organs include the liver, pancreas, and gallbladder (Scanlon, ).

Biogenic amines derived from basic and aromatic amino acids (B/A-BAs), polyamines, histamine, serotonin, and catecholamines are a group of molecules playing essential roles in many relevant physiological processes, including cell proliferation, immune response, nutrition and reproduction.

All these physiological effects involve a variety of tissue-specific cellular receptors and signalling Cited by: 5.

This book provides an up-to-date summary of the large body of data regarding gastrointestinal hormones and growth factors involved in the development and maintenance of the architecture and physiological functions of the different organs of the digestive tract.

The gastrointestinal tract contains many important organs like the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine or colon, rectum, and anus. Bleeding can come from one or more of these area from a small ulcer in the stomach, or a large surface like the inflammation of the colon.

Gastrointestinal Diseases. Gastrointestinal Diseases sequence is a series of lectures, laboratory exercises, case presentations and a Multidisciplinary Conference that are designed to introduce students to the scientific foundations of diseases that affect the gastrointestinal tract.

Abstract. This book contains 11 chapters. Some of the chapter titles are: T cells and Other Non-B Lymphocytes; Mucosal Mast Cells and IgE; Genetic Aspects of Gastrointestinal Immunology; Immunological Functions of the Liver; Lymphocyte Migration and Mucosal Immunity; and Immunoglobulin Circulation and Secretion.

Polyamines have also been reported to modulate gastrointestinal smooth muscle contractions [13,14,39] and spontaneous motility [20,21,40], based mainly on longitudinal preparations.

PHYSIOLOGY OF THE GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT (GIT) Main function: The GIT provides the body with a supply of water, nutrients, electrolytes, vitamines.

Actions: 1) Digestion of the food. 2) Absorption of the products of digestion. Ad 1) Digestive processes: mechanical - chemical.

The gastrointestinal system is responsible for the 1/5(1). Gastrointestinal Physiology, a volume in the Mosby Physiology Monograph Series, explains the fundamentals of gastrointestinal physiology in a clear and concise manner.

Ideal for your systems-based curriculum, this fully updated medical textbook provides you with a basic understanding of how the GI system functions in both health and disease/5(7). Your digestive tract stretches from your mouth to your anus.

It includes the organs necessary to digest food and process waste. The control of the growth of gastrointestinal mucosa is unique and, compared with most other tissue in the body, complex.

Mucosal growth is regulated by the same hormones that alter metabolism in other tissues, but the gastrointestinal mucosa also responds to host events triggered by the ingestion and presence of food within the digestive : Rao N.

Jaladanki, Jian-Ying Wang. The gastrointestinal tract or digestive tract, also referred to as the GI tract or the alimentary canal or the gut, is the system of organs within multicellular animals which takes in food.

It would be difficult to show all associated histology on a single page as there are many different components of the gastrointestinal tract and associated organs.

Therefore this page should be considered as simply a start page containing image galleries and links to. The histology of the gastrointestinal tract is largely the histology of epithelial tissues.

Be sure you are familiar with the basic properties of epithelial tissue. Mucosal epithelium of the GI tract is variously differentiated and specialized for the functions of digestive secretion and absorption.

Furthermore, glutamine and other polyamines stimulate mitotic activity in the crypts (LUK and BAYLIN, ).
