Which layer of alimentary canal is formed of loose connective tissues?

Detailed Solution for Test: Digestion & Absorption - 1 - Question 5

The wall of alimentary canal possesses four layers- serosa, muscularis, sub mucosa, and mucosa:

  • Sub-mucosa layer is formed of loose connective tissues containing nerves, blood, and lymph vessels. Glands are also present in sub-mucosa of duodenum.
  • Serosa is the outermost layer and is made up of a thin mesothelium and connective tissue.
  • Muscularis is formed by smooth muscles usually arranged into an inner circular and an outer longitudinal layer.
  • Mucosa is the innermost layer lining the lumen of the alimentary canal. Mucosa forms irregular folds (rugae) in the stomach and villi in the small intestine.

Brunner’s gland is

Detailed Solution for Test: Digestion & Absorption - 1 - Question 13
  1. Brunner's glands (or duodenal glands) are compound tubular submucosal glands found in that portion of the duodenum which is above the hepatopancreatic sphincter (Sphincter of Oddi).
  2. The main function of these glands is to produce a mucus-rich alkaline secretion (containing bicarbonate) in order to protect the duodenum from the acidic content of chyme (which is introduced into the duodenum from the stomach); provide an alkaline condition for the intestinal enzymes to be active, thus enabling absorption to take place, lubricate the intestinal walls. They are the distinguishing feature of the duodenum.
