a group of chemical processes that builds or breaks down body tissues after absorption
What are the three processes involved in metabolism?
What is catabolism?
the breakdown of complex materials into simpler materials
What is anabolism?

Why is the liver important in metabolism?
It's the central hub of metabolism as there is a portal vein from the cecum to the liver.
pyloric antrum of stomach or abomasum
stimulates through stomach distension
stimulates acid secretion by gastric glands
occurs in 1st cells in small intestine
stimulated by acidification of duodenum and peptones in duodenum
stimulation of volume and bicarbonate outputs of pancreatic secretion and of bile
(prevents enzymes from being destroyed)
starts in small intestine
stimulated by long-chain fatty acids, amino acids, peptones
: contraction of gall bladder and pancreas, stimulates synthesis of pancreatic enzymes (fat digestion), inhibits HCl secretion, enances insulin release, may induce satiety (animal feeling full)
