Process of Absorbing Glucose in the Small Intestine

HideShow resource information

  • Glucose enters capillaries via facilitated diffusion
    • Absorbing Glucose in the Small Intestine
    • With specific channel proteins
    • Equilibrium reached
      • ActiveTransport removes sodium from epithelial cell - capillaries
        • Low concentration of sodium in the cell
        • Sodium diffuses(facilitated) from lumen - epithelial cell
          • Glucose diffuses across with the sodium - co-transport
            • Glucose diffuses (facilitated) from cell - capillary on it's own
