  1. 1. Chapter 41 Animal Nutrition
  2. 2. <ul><li>Overview: The Need to Feed </li></ul><ul><li>Every mealtime is a reminder that we are heterotrophs </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Dependent on a regular supply of food </li></ul></ul>Figure 41.1
  3. 3. <ul><li>In general, animals fall into one of three dietary categories </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Herbivores eat mainly autotrophs (plants and algae) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Carnivores eat other animals </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Omnivores regularly consume animals as well as plants or algal matter </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Regardless of what an animal eats, an adequate diet must satisfy three nutritional needs </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Fuel for all cellular work </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The organic raw materials for biosynthesis </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Essential nutrients, substances such as vitamins that the animal cannot make for itself </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Animals feed by four main mechanisms </li></ul>Figure 41.2 Baleen SUSPENSION FEEDERS Feces SUBSTRATE FEEDERS BULK FEEDERS FLUID FEEDERS Caterpillar
  6. 6. <ul><li>Concept 41.1: Homeostatic mechanisms manage an animal’s energy budget </li></ul><ul><li>Nearly all of an animal’s ATP generation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Is based on the oxidation of energy-rich molecules: carbohydrates, proteins, and fats </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. Glucose Regulation as an Example of Homeostasis <ul><li>Animals store excess calories </li></ul><ul><ul><li>As glycogen in the liver and muscles and as fat </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Glucose is a major fuel for cells </li></ul><ul><li>Its metabolism, regulated by hormone action, is an important example of homeostasis </li></ul>Figure 41.3 STIMULUS: Blood glucose level rises after eating. Homeostasis: 90 mg glucose/ 100 mL blood STIMULUS: Blood glucose level drops below set point. 1 When blood glucose level rises, a gland called the pancreas secretes insulin, a hormone, into the blood. Insulin enhances the transport of glucose into body cells and stimulates the liver and muscle cells to store glucose as glycogen. As a result, blood glucose level drops. 2 Glucagon promotes the breakdown of glycogen in the liver and the release of glucose into the blood, increasing blood glucose level. 4 When blood glucose level drops, the pancreas secretes the hormone glucagon, which opposes the effect of insulin. 3
  9. 9. <ul><li>When fewer calories are taken in than are expended </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Fuel is taken out of storage and oxidized </li></ul></ul>
  10. 10. Caloric Imbalance <ul><li>Undernourishment </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Occurs in animals when their diets are chronically deficient in calories </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Can have detrimental effects on an animal </li></ul></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>Overnourishment </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Results from excessive food intake </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Leads to the storage of excess calories as fat </li></ul></ul>Figure 41.4 100 µm
  12. 12. Obesity as a Human Health Problem <ul><li>The World Health Organization </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Now recognizes obesity as a major global health problem </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Obesity contributes to a number of health problems, including </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and colon and breast cancer </li></ul></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>Researchers have discovered </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Several of the mechanisms that help regulate body weight </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Over the long term, homeostatic mechanisms </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Are feedback circuits that control the body’s storage and metabolism of fat </li></ul></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>Several chemical signals called hormones </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Regulate both long-term and short-term appetite by affecting a “satiety center” in the brain </li></ul></ul>Figure 41.5 Produced by adipose (fat) tissue, leptin suppresses appetite as its level increases. When body fat decreases, leptin levels fall, and appetite increases. Leptin PYY Insulin Ghrelin Secreted by the stomach wall, ghrelin is one of the signals that triggers feelings of hunger as mealtimes approach. In dieters who lose weight, ghrelin levels increase, which may be one reason it’s so hard to stay on a diet. The hormone PYY, secreted by the small intestine after meals, acts as an appetite suppressant that counters the appetite stimulant ghrelin. A rise in blood sugar level after a meal stimulates the pancreas to secrete insulin (see Figure 41.3). In addition to its other functions, insulin suppresses appetite by acting on the brain.
  15. 15. <ul><li>The complexity of weight control in humans </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Is evident from studies of the hormone leptin </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Mice that inherit a defect in the gene for leptin </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Become very obese </li></ul></ul>Figure 41.6
  16. 16. Obesity and Evolution <ul><li>The problem of maintaining weight partly stems from our evolutionary past </li></ul><ul><ul><li>When fat hoarding was a means of survival </li></ul></ul>
  17. 17. <ul><li>A species of birds called petrels </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Become obese as chicks due to the need to consume more calories than they burn </li></ul></ul>Figure 41.7
  18. 18. <ul><li>Concept 41.2: An animal’s diet must supply carbon skeletons and essential nutrients </li></ul><ul><li>To build the complex molecules it needs to grow, maintain itself, and reproduce </li></ul><ul><ul><li>An animal must obtain organic precursors (carbon skeletons) from its food </li></ul></ul>
  19. 19. <ul><li>Besides fuel and carbon skeletons </li></ul><ul><ul><li>An animal’s diet must also supply essential nutrients in preassembled form </li></ul></ul><ul><li>An animal that is malnourished </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Is missing one or more essential nutrients in its diet </li></ul></ul>
  20. 20. <ul><li>Herbivorous animals </li></ul><ul><ul><li>May suffer mineral deficiencies if they graze on plants in soil lacking key minerals </li></ul></ul>Figure 41.8
  21. 21. <ul><li>Malnutrition </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Is much more common than undernutrition in human populations </li></ul></ul>
  22. 22. Essential Amino Acids <ul><li>Animals require 20 amino acids </li></ul><ul><ul><li>And can synthesize about half of them from the other molecules they obtain from their diet </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The remaining amino acids, the essential amino acids </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Must be obtained from food in preassembled form </li></ul></ul>
  23. 23. <ul><li>A diet that provides insufficient amounts of one or more essential amino acids </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Causes a form of malnutrition called protein deficiency </li></ul></ul>Figure 41.9
  24. 24. <ul><li>Most plant proteins are incomplete in amino acid makeup </li></ul><ul><ul><li>So individuals who must eat only plant proteins need to eat a variety to ensure that they get all the essential amino acids </li></ul></ul>Corn (maize) and other grains Beans and other legumes Essential amino acids for adults Methionine Valine Threonine Phenylalanine Leucine Isoleucine Lysine Tryptophan Figure 41.10
  25. 25. <ul><li>Some animals have adaptations </li></ul><ul><ul><li>That help them through periods when their bodies demand extraordinary amounts of protein </li></ul></ul>Figure 41.11
  26. 26. Essential Fatty Acids <ul><li>Animals can synthesize most of the fatty acids they need </li></ul><ul><li>The essential fatty acids </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Are certain unsaturated fatty acids </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Deficiencies in fatty acids are rare </li></ul>
  27. 27. Vitamins <ul><li>Vitamins are organic molecules </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Required in the diet in small amounts </li></ul></ul><ul><li>To date, 13 vitamins essential to humans </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Have been identified </li></ul></ul>
  28. 28. <ul><li>Vitamins are grouped into two categories </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Fat-soluble and water-soluble </li></ul></ul>Table 41.1
  29. 29. Minerals <ul><li>Minerals are simple inorganic nutrients </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Usually required in small amounts </li></ul></ul>

  31. 31. <ul><li>Concept 41.3: The main stages of food processing are ingestion, digestion, absorption, and elimination </li></ul><ul><li>Ingestion, the act of eating </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Is the first stage of food processing </li></ul></ul>
  32. 32. <ul><li>Digestion, the second stage of food processing </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Is the process of breaking food down into molecules small enough to absorb </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Involves enzymatic hydrolysis of polymers into their monomers </li></ul></ul>
  33. 33. <ul><li>Absorption, the third stage of food processing </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Is the uptake of nutrients by body cells </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Elimination, the fourth stage of food processing </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Occurs as undigested material passes out of the digestive compartment </li></ul></ul>

  35. 35. Digestive Compartments <ul><li>Most animals process food </li></ul><ul><ul><li>In specialized compartments </li></ul></ul>
  36. 36. Intracellular Digestion <ul><li>In intracellular digestion </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Food particles are engulfed by endocytosis and digested within food vacuoles </li></ul></ul>
  37. 37. Extracellular Digestion <ul><li>Extracellular digestion </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Is the breakdown of food particles outside cells </li></ul></ul>
  38. 38. <ul><li>Animals with simple body plans </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Have a gastrovascular cavity that functions in both digestion and distribution of nutrients </li></ul></ul>Figure 41.13 Gastrovascular cavity Food Epidermis Mesenchyme Gastrodermis Mouth Tentacles Mesenchyme Food vacuoles Gland cells Flagella Nutritive muscular cells
  39. 39. <ul><li>Animals with a more complex body plan </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Have a digestive tube with two openings, a mouth and an anus </li></ul></ul><ul><li>This digestive tube </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Is called a complete digestive tract or an alimentary canal </li></ul></ul>
  40. 40. <ul><li>The digestive tube can be organized into specialized regions </li></ul><ul><ul><li>That carry out digestion and nutrient absorption in a stepwise fashion </li></ul></ul>Esophagus Mouth Pharynx Crop Gizzard Intestine Typhlosole Lumen of intestine Esophagus Rectum Mouth Crop Anus Intestine Gizzard Stomach Mouth Esophagus Foregut Midgut Hindgut <ul><li>Earthworm. The digestive tract of an earthworm includes a muscular pharynx that sucks food in through the mouth. Food passes through the esophagus and is stored and moistened in the crop. The muscular gizzard, which contains small bits of sand and gravel, pulverizes the food. Digestion and absorption occur in the intestine, which has a dorsal fold, the typhlosole, that increases the surface area for nutrient absorption. </li></ul>(b) Grasshopper. A grasshopper has several digestive chambers grouped into three main regions: a foregut, with an esophagus and crop; a midgut; and a hindgut. Food is moistened and stored in the crop, but most digestion occurs in the midgut. Gastric ceca, pouches extending from the midgut, absorb nutrients. (c) Bird. Many birds have three separate chambers— the crop, stomach, and gizzard—where food is pulverized and churned before passing into the intestine. A bird’s crop and gizzard function very much like those of an earthworm. In most birds, chemical digestion and absorption of nutrients occur in the intestine.

  41. 41. <ul><li>Concept 41.4: Each organ of the mammalian digestive system has specialized food-processing functions </li></ul>
  42. 42. <ul><li>The mammalian digestive system consists of the alimentary canal </li></ul><ul><ul><li>And various accessory glands that secrete digestive juices through ducts </li></ul></ul>

  45. 45. The Oral Cavity, Pharynx, and Esophagus <ul><li>In the oral cavity, food is lubricated and digestion begins </li></ul><ul><ul><li>And teeth chew food into smaller particles that are exposed to salivary amylase, initiating the breakdown of glucose polymers </li></ul></ul>

The swallowing reflex is triggered when a bolus of food reaches the pharynx. 2 The larynx, the upper part of the respiratory tract, moves upward and tips the epiglottis over the glottis, preventing food from entering the trachea. 3 The esophageal sphincter relaxes, allowing the bolus to enter the esophagus. 4 After the food has entered the esophagus, the larynx moves downward and opens the breathing passage. 5 Waves of muscular contraction (peristalsis) move the bolus down the esophagus to the stomach. 6
  48. 48. The Stomach <ul><li>The stomach stores food </li></ul><ul><ul><li>And secretes gastric juice, which converts a meal to acid chyme </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Gastric juice </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Is made up of hydrochloric acid and the enzyme pepsin </li></ul></ul>
  49. 49. <ul><li>The lining of the stomach </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Is coated with mucus, which prevents the gastric juice from destroying the cells </li></ul></ul>Figure 41.17 Pepsin (active enzyme) HCl Parietal cell Chief cell Stomach Folds of epithelial tissue Esophagus Pyloric sphincter Epithelium Pepsinogen 3 2 1 Interior surface of stomach. The interior surface of the stomach wall is highly folded and dotted with pits leading into tubular gastric glands. Gastric gland. The gastric glands have three types of cells that secrete different components of the gastric juice: mucus cells, chief cells, and parietal cells. Mucus cells secrete mucus, which lubricates and protects the cells lining the stomach. Chief cells secrete pepsino- gen, an inactive form of the digestive enzyme pepsin. Parietal cells secrete hydrochloric acid (HCl). 1 Pepsinogen and HCI are secreted into the lumen of the stomach. 2 HCl converts pepsinogen to pepsin. 3 Pepsin then activates more pepsinogen, starting a chain reaction. Pepsin begins the chemical digestion of proteins. 5 µm Small intestine Cardiac orifice

  52. 52. Enzymatic Action in the Small Intestine <ul><li>The first portion of the small intestine is the duodenum </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Where acid chyme from the stomach mixes with digestive juices from the pancreas, liver, gallbladder, and intestine itself </li></ul></ul>Figure 41.19 Liver Bile Acid chyme Stomach Pancreatic juice Pancreas Intestinal juice Duodenum of small intestine Gall- bladder
  53. 53. <ul><li>The pancreas produces proteases, protein-digesting enzymes </li></ul><ul><ul><li>That are activated once they enter the duodenum </li></ul></ul>Figure 41.20 Pancreas Membrane-bound enteropeptidase Trypsin Active proteases Lumen of duodenum Inactive trypsinogen Other inactive proteases

Bile salts Fat droplets (A coating of bile salts prevents small drop- lets from coalescing into larger globules, increasing exposure to lipase.) Pancreatic lipase Glycerol, fatty acids, glycerides
  55. 55. <ul><li>Hormones help coordinate the secretion of digestive juices into the alimentary canal </li></ul>Figure 41.22 Amino acids or fatty acids in the duodenum trigger the release of cholecystokinin (CCK), which stimulates the release of digestive enzymes from the pancreas and bile from the gallbladder. Liver Gall- bladder CCK Entero- gastrone Gastrin Stomach Pancreas Secretin CCK Duodenum Key Stimulation Inhibition Enterogastrone secreted by the duodenum inhibits peristalsis and acid secretion by the stomach, thereby slowing digestion when acid chyme rich in fats enters the duodenum. Secreted by the duodenum, secretin stimulates the pancreas to release sodium bicarbonate, which neutralizes acid chyme from the stomach. Gastrin from the stomach recirculates via the bloodstream back to the stomach, where it stimulates the production of gastric juices.
  56. 56. Absorption of Nutrients <ul><li>The small intestine has a huge surface area </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Due to the presence of villi and microvilli that are exposed to the intestinal lumen </li></ul></ul>
  57. 57. <ul><li>The enormous microvillar surface </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Is an adaptation that greatly increases the rate of nutrient absorption </li></ul></ul>Figure 41.23 Epithelial cells Key Nutrient absorption Vein carrying blood to hepatic portal vessel Villi Large circular folds Intestinal wall Villi Epithelial cells Lymph vessel Blood capillaries Lacteal Microvilli (brush border) Muscle layers
  58. 58. <ul><li>The core of each villus </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Contains a network of blood vessels and a small vessel of the lymphatic system called a lacteal </li></ul></ul>
  59. 59. <ul><li>Amino acids and sugars </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Pass through the epithelium of the small intestine and enter the bloodstream </li></ul></ul><ul><li>After glycerol and fatty acids are absorbed by epithelial cells </li></ul><ul><ul><li>They are recombined into fats within these cells </li></ul></ul>
  60. 60. <ul><li>These fats are then mixed with cholesterol and coated with proteins </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Forming small molecules called chylomicrons, which are transported into lacteals </li></ul></ul>Figure 41.24 Large fat globules are emulsified by bile salts in the duodenum. 1 Digestion of fat by the pancreatic enzyme lipase yields free fatty acids and monoglycerides, which then form micelles. 2 Fatty acids and mono- glycerides leave micelles and enter epithelial cells by diffusion. 3 Fat globule Lacteal Epithelial cells of small intestine Micelles made up of fatty acids, monoglycerides, and bile salts Fat droplets coated with bile salts Bile salts Chylomicrons containing fatty substances are transported out of the epithelial cells and into lacteals, where they are carried away from the intestine by lymph. 4
  61. 61. The Large Intestine <ul><li>The large intestine, or colon </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Is connected to the small intestine </li></ul></ul>Figure 41.25
  62. 62. <ul><li>A major function of the colon </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Is to recover water that has entered the alimentary canal </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The wastes of the digestive tract, the feces </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Become more solid as they move through the colon </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Pass through the rectum and exit via the anus </li></ul></ul>

Some boluses also enter the reticulum. In both the rumen and the reticulum, symbiotic prokaryotes and protists (mainly ciliates) go to work on the cellulose-rich meal. As by-products of their metabolism, the microorganisms secrete fatty acids.

The units for these numbers are mm of mercury (Hg); a blood pressure of 120 is a force that can support a column of mercury 120 mm high. 1 A sphygmomanometer, an inflatable cuff attached to a pressure gauge, measures blood pressure in an artery. The cuff is wrapped around the upper arm and inflated until the pressure closes the artery, so that no blood flows past the cuff. When this occurs, the pressure exerted by the cuff exceeds the pressure in the artery. 2 A stethoscope is used to listen for sounds of blood flow below the cuff. If the artery is closed, there is no pulse below the cuff. The cuff is gradually deflated until blood begins to flow into the forearm, and sounds from blood pulsing into the artery below the cuff can be heard with the stethoscope. This occurs when the blood pressure is greater than the pressure exerted by the cuff. The pressure at this point is the systolic pressure. 3 The cuff is loosened further until the blood flows freely through the artery and the sounds below the cuff disappear. The pressure at this point is the diastolic pressure remaining in the artery when the heart is relaxed. 4 70

Platelets adhere to collagen fibers in the connective tissue and release a substance that makes nearby platelets sticky. 1 The platelets form a plug that provides emergency protection against blood loss. 2 This seal is reinforced by a clot of fibrin when vessel damage is severe. Fibrin is formed via a multistep process: Clotting factors released from the clumped platelets or damaged cells mix with clotting factors in the plasma, forming an activation cascade that converts a plasma protein called prothrombin to its active form, thrombin. Thrombin itself is an enzyme that catalyzes the final step of the clotting process, the conversion of fibrinogen to fibrin. The threads of fibrin become interwoven into a patch (see colorized SEM). 3 Figure 42.17

Rings of chitin reinforce the largest tubes, called tracheae, keeping them from collapsing. Enlarged portions of tracheae form air sacs near organs that require a large supply of oxygen. Air enters the tracheae through openings called spiracles on the insect’s body surface and passes into smaller tubes called tracheoles. The tracheoles are closed and contain fluid (blue-gray). When the animal is active and is using more O 2 , most of the fluid is withdrawn into the body. This increases the surface area of air in contact with cells.

  158. 158. Control of Breathing in Humans <ul><li>The main breathing control centers </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Are located in two regions of the brain, the medulla oblongata and the pons </li></ul></ul>4 Figure 42.26 Pons Breathing control centers Medulla oblongata Diaphragm Carotid arteries Aorta Cerebrospinal fluid Rib muscles In a person at rest, these nerve impulses result in about 10 to 14 inhalations per minute. Between inhalations, the muscles relax and the person exhales. The medulla’s control center also helps regulate blood CO 2 level. Sensors in the medulla detect changes in the pH (reflecting CO 2 concentration) of the blood and cerebrospinal fluid bathing the surface of the brain. Nerve impulses relay changes in CO 2 and O 2 concentrations. Other sensors in the walls of the aorta and carotid arteries in the neck detect changes in blood pH and send nerve impulses to the medulla. In response, the medulla’s breathing control center alters the rate and depth of breathing, increasing both to dispose of excess CO 2 or decreasing both if CO 2 levels are depressed. The control center in the medulla sets the basic rhythm, and a control center in the pons moderates it, smoothing out the transitions between inhalations and exhalations. 1 Nerve impulses trigger muscle contraction. Nerves from a breathing control center in the medulla oblongata of the brain send impulses to the diaphragm and rib muscles, stimulating them to contract and causing inhalation. 2 The sensors in the aorta and carotid arteries also detect changes in O 2 levels in the blood and signal the medulla to increase the breathing rate when levels become very low. 6 5 3

Over 90% of the CO 2 diffuses into red blood cells, leaving only 7% in the plasma as dissolved CO 2 . Some CO 2 is picked up and transported by hemoglobin. However, most CO 2 reacts with water in red blood cells, forming carbonic acid (H 2 CO 3 ), a reaction catalyzed by carbonic anhydrase contained. Within red blood cells. Carbonic acid dissociates into a biocarbonate ion (HCO 3 – ) and a hydrogen ion (H + ). Hemoglobin binds most of the H + from H 2 CO 3 preventing the H + from acidifying the blood and thus preventing the Bohr shift. CO 2 diffuses into the alveolar space, from which it is expelled during exhalation. The reduction of CO 2 concentration in the plasma drives the breakdown of H 2 CO 3 Into CO 2 and water in the red blood cells (see step 9), a reversal of the reaction that occurs in the tissues (see step 4). Most of the HCO 3 – diffuse into the plasma where it is carried in the bloodstream to the lungs. In the HCO 3 – diffuse from the plasma red blood cells, combining with H + released from hemoglobin and forming H 2 CO 3 . Carbonic acid is converted back into CO 2 and water.

Proliferation of the T cell, stimulated by cytokines from both the dendritic cell and the T cell itself, gives rise to a clone of activated helper T cells (not shown), all with receptors for the same MHC–antigen complex.
