(852-853) 3) The function of the hepatic portal circulation is to collect absorbed nutrients for metabolic processing and storage. (881) 4) When we ingest large molecules such as lipids, carbohydrates, and proteins, they must undergo catabolic reactions whereby enzymes split these molecules. This series of reactions is called chemical digestion. (854) 5) From the esophagus to the anal canal, the walls of every organ of the alimentary canal are made up of the same four basic layers.
