Digestive physiology is one of the bottlenecks of octopus aquaculture. Although there are successful experimentally formulated feeds, knowledge of the digestive physiology of cephalopods is fragmented, and focused mainly on O. vulgaris. Considering that the digestive physiology could vary in tropical and sub-tropical species through temperature modulations of the digestive dynamics and nutritional requirements of different organisms, the present review was focused on the digestive physiology timing of O. maya and O. mimus, two promising aquaculture species living in tropical (22 - 30°C) and sub-tropical (15 - 24°C) ecosystems, respectively. We provide a detailed description of how soluble and complex nutrients are digested, absorbed and assimilated in these species, describing the digestive process and providing insight into how the environment can modulate the digestion and final use of nutrients for these and presumably other octopus species. To date, research on these octopus species has

Over the past decade, in vitro methods have been developed to study intestinal fermentation in pigs and its influence on the digestive physiology and health. In these methods, ingredients are fermented by a bacterial inoculum diluted in a mineral buffer solution. Generally, a reducing agent such as Na2S or cysteine-HCl generates the required anaerobic environment by releasing metabolites similar to those produced when protein is fermented, possibly inducing a dysbiosis. An experiment was conducted to study the impact of two reducing agents on results yielded by such in vitro fermentation models. Protein (soybean proteins, casein) and carbohydrate (potato starch, cellulose) ingredients were fermented in vitro by bacteria isolated from fresh feces obtained ...
Postdoctoral trainees will perform experiments to study basic physiological processes including bile secretion and the enterohepatic circulation of bile salts using zebrafish. Mechanisms of diarrhea and gastric secretion will be examined with killifish opercula and frog intestine respectively. Confocal microscopy will be used to assess bile acid secretion in zebrafish, and in isolated rat hepatocyte sandwich cultures. Modern molecular biology and immunocytochemical approaches will be used to identify specific transport proteins and bioinformatic approaches will be used to analyze respective genes and gene sets, including mutations which disrupt these processes and result in clinical disease. Disease models of biliary atresia and liver regeneration will also be examined in zebrafish.. Fellows will benefit from close interactions with senior investigators in Liver and GI physiology and pathophysiology who will guide them through the performance of the experiments, share meals, and take the time to ...

Streptococci that were phagocytized by human or mouse leukocytes were usually enclosed in a digestive vacuole. At times the vacuole emptied itself, discharging the cocci to the outside. Whether the egested streptococci then multiplied in the extracellular environment appeared to depend upon how long they had been in the vacuole. The phenomenon of egestion also involves particles other than bacteria, as shown by observation of an erythrocyte that was phagocytized by a human leukocyte and was hemolyzed intracellularly, forming a cell ghost that was then egested. ...

The aim is to put some sound scientific knowledge behind the practical aspects of feeding horses and to extend and develop the information provided by the previous 10-credit equine nutrition module. This module will build upon the knowledge gained in the Horsemastership modules and any practical experience the student may have gained during their industrial placement. The module will cover the digestive physiology of the horse; its energy, protein and micronutrient requirements, and will integrate aspects of plant nutrient content with daily nutrient supply. Considerable emphasis will be placed on ration formulation for performance horses engaged in a wide variety of activities and on the incidence of metabolic disorders ...
Adding the right prebiotic to the diets of pediatric patients with intestinal failure could replace intravenous feeding, says a new University of Illinois study.. "When we fed the carbohydrate fructooligosacharide (FOS) as a prebiotic, the gut grew and increased in function," said Kelly A. Tappenden, a U of I professor of nutrition and gastrointestinal physiology. "The study showed that using the correct pre- and probiotic in combination could enhance these results even more.". When FOS enters the intestines, bacteria convert it into butyrate, a short-chain fatty acid that increases the size of the gut and its ability to digest and absorb nutrients, she said.. But todays IV solutions dont contain butyrate and adding it would entail drug development trials and regulatory red tape. She wanted to see if adding this carbohydrate to the diet while continuing to provide most nutrients intravenously would cause the gut to start producing butyrate on its own. It worked.. According to Tappenden, at ...

Enzymes start the digestive process far before food reaches your stomach. If your body is lacking vital digestive enzymes, it could lead to painful bacterial overgrowth and inflammation.
From the mouth, to the stomach, intestines and colon, the entire digestive process takes from 24 to 44 hours depending on what food youve eaten.
An intestinal blockage interrupts the normal digestive process. Many possible causes can lead to intestinal blockage including scarring, a hernia, or tumors.

Sloths are renowned for their low metabolic rate, low food intake and low defecation frequency. We investigated factors of digestive physiology and energy metabolism in four captive individuals (mean body mass 10.0 ± SD 3.7 kg) of a hitherto mostly unstudied sloth species, Linnés two-toed sloth (Choloepus didactylus), in a 2-week digestion recording and 23-h respiration experiment on animals fed a standard zoo diet of vegetables and starchy components. Dry matter intake, defecation frequency and particle mean retention time (MRT) in the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) were 12 ± 3 g/(kg0.75 day), once every 5 days and |140 h in three individuals, but 53 g/(kg0.75 day), daily and 82 h in one individual that was apparently compensating for a period of weight loss prior to the experiment. In all animals, solute marker was eliminated at a faster rate than the particle marker, indicating digesta washing in the sloths GIT. The overall metabolic rate calculated from oxygen consumption matched the
It is important to note that the regulation of GI function and morphology is not a novel phenomenon found in pythons alone but, rather, is practiced (to some extent) by all vertebrates. The modulation of GI activities and structure in response to changes in digestive demand has been well recorded for a wide diversity of vertebrates (Hammond and Diamond, 1994; Secor and Diamond, 2000; McWilliams and Karasov, 2001; Kroghdahl and Bakke-Mckellep, 2005; Secor, 2005a). What sets pythons, and other infrequently feeding snakes, apart is the sheer magnitude of their regulatory response. Instead of a 25-50% increase in intestinal mass and a 50-100% increase in mass-specific nutrient uptake rates commonly observed with feeding or a change in diet, pythons double the mass of their small intestine and increase nutrient uptake rates by 5- to 10-fold (Secor, 2005b; Ott and Secor, 2007). When integrated for the complete small intestine, the capacity to hydrolyze and absorb nutrients with an increase in demand ...

Whole grains and legumes contain not only lectins, but also saponins which adversely affect human gastrointestinal physiology as well as that in animal models. In my book, The Paleo Diet for Athletes, we recommend that in order for you to get sufficient carbohydrates in your diet you replace grains with high glycemic fruits including bananas, raisins, dates, dried fruit, and fresh fruits. Yams and sweet potatoes are also a good source of vegetable high glycemic load carbs. White potatoes can be problematic as they contain high concentrations of saponins which may exacerbate GI tract problems. Of all grains, rice seems to be the least problematic in terms of interacting with the immune system and GI function. Do I recommend it? Try it & see how you feel -- same advice for all dietary suggestions -- listen to your body -- it is the final judge. Corn and corn products also have been shown to adversely affect human GI tract function & you may want to experiment with eliminating these products. ...

Enzymes are the most effective tools made by the body to aid digestion and metabolism. They turn the food we eat into energy (ATP) and unlock the energy for use in the body. A tremendous amount of energy is required to produce the metabolic, biochemical and digestive enzymes necessary for health and maintenance. When we fail to properly break down foods, the digestive process is disrupted.. When there is an insufficient quantity of digestive enzymes present in the body, undigested food may pass into the large intestine and be acted upon by intestinal flora.. The resulting reaction produces gas and discomfort. Enzyme supplementation encourages healthy digestion of proteins, fats, fibers and carbohydrates, in addition to promoting an optimally functional GI tract.. Providing the body with a sufficient supply of enzymes decreases the amount of energy required to complete the digestive process.. Enzymes provide therapeutic benefits beyond the GI tract by increasing physical vitality and general ...

Our diet consists of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Your pancreas produces enzymes called amylase, lipase and protease that aid in the digestive process of these foods. As we age, our pancreas may not produce enough of these enzymes required for adequate digestion and will require the immune system to compensate by lending their enzymes for the digestive process. Its also important to eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables that contain a natural plant enzyme (cellulase) for proper digestion of plant fibre known as cellulose.. ...

Do we really know the long-term effects of allowing Omeprazole for endurance horses? From my understanding, the drug inhibits acid production. Stomach acid is part of the digestive process and is required to help breakdown the foodstuffs the horse is eating. If not enough acid is present, then the effect could be to dump undigested food into the hind gut, which can change the PH of the hind gut and cause the death of healthy microbial population which is necessary for fiber breakdown. Is the hind gut any less important than the stomach? Whats scary is we cant really check for that. I cant get a scope of my horses hind gut. That only can happen at an autopsy ...
Restrictive gastric operations, such as an adjustable gastric banding procedure, serve only to restrict and decrease food intake and do not interfere with the normal digestive process.. In this procedure, a hollow band made of special material is placed around the stomach near its upper end, creating the small pouch and a narrow passage into the larger remaining portion of the stomach. This small passage delays the emptying of food from the pouch and causes a feeling of fullness.. The band can be tightened or loosened over time to change the size of the passage. Initially, the pouch holds about 1 ounce of food and later expands to 2-3 ounces.. ...

A common consequence of abdominal surgery is that the patients digestive system stops working for a few days. This is called ileus and it can be both painful and uncomfortable for the patient. Ileus can lead to nausea, vomiting, and abdominal discomfort and is associated with complications, reduced patient satisfaction, and increased length of hospital stay.. Chewing gum is hypothesized to reduce postoperative ileus by stimulating early recovery of gastrointestinal function. Chewing gum tricks the body into thinking it is eating, causing the digestive system to start working again. Given that most people have previous experience of chewing gum, the intervention is generally well tolerated by individuals. Chewing gum as an intervention is also low-cost and easy to implement.. A team of Cochrane authors, based in the UK and Denmark and working with the Cochrane Colorectal Cancer Group, set out to evaluate if chewing gum after surgery hastens the return of gastrointestinal function. Randomized ...

Evaluating the degree of organ dysfunction is a cornerstone in distinguishing patients with critical illness from those without. However, evaluation of the gastrointestinal function in critically ill patients is not unified, and is still largely based on subjective clinical evaluation. Although intra-abdominal pressure has been proposed as a parameter to facilitate monitoring of abdominal compartment in critical illness, the interactions between intra-abdominal pressure and gastrointestinal function are poorly clarified. The aim of this current review is to describe interactions and associations between gastrointestinal dysfunction and intra-abdominal pressure from a pathophysiological and clinical point of view. ...
