What structures divide the gastrointestinal tract? what is their function? thank you for answer

thank you for answer
Answers:    Chris, what you're asking for is a anatomy (form) and physiology (function) lesson. This can't be done in the space provided here. And at hand are no "structures" that divide the GI tract - it's continuous from mouth to anus. Why not just Google "what are the parts of the digestive system"? The functions will be in the descriptions. Or open your textbook.
Muscular valve called sphincters at different points in the tract. each finish of stomach, between small and large intestines, and at upper and lower ends of bowels. regulate direction of flow.

Your question is not very specific.
There are some valves/sphincters that separate different areas of the GI tract. The lower esophageal sphincter separates the esophagus from the stomach and prevent gastric reflux. The pylorus separates the stomach from the first portion of the small intestine (duodenum). The ileocecal valve separates the closing of the intestine (ileum) from the beginning of the large intestine (cecum).
