Answer Key : (a) -

(a)

Lacteals absorbs fatty acids and glycerol in the small intestine of human. Fatty acids and glycerol are insoluble in water so, they cannot be absorbed in blood stream directly. They are first broken down into small, water soluble droplets with the action of bile salts called micelles. The later are absorbed by the intestinal cells where these are resynthesised in the endoplasmic reticulum and are transferred in form of smaller fat droplets – chylomicrons through lacteals. Due to the dilation of intestinal lacteals lymph gets, lost into the lumen of small intestinal, which results into lymphopenia, hypoproteinemia, etc.
