fibers, but also functions as “a bactericide against swallowed microorganisms” (888). Pepsinogen is also converted to pepsin by gastric hydrochloric acid. According to Huether and McCance (2017), for acid to be produced by the parietal cells, chloride and hydrogen must be transported to the stomach lumen (from the parietal cells).

The vagus nerve is responsible for prompting the… Continue Reading...
