What is the difference between ayatana and indriya?

Especially with reference to the two following teachings. They seem connected somehow. Are they the same?

[MN121]

Atthi cevāyaṃ darathamatthā, yadidaṃ imameva kāyaṃ paṭicca saḷāyatanikaṃ jīvitapaccayā'ti

[https://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitak ... ml#pts.104]

[MN43]

Pañcimānī āvuso indriyāni seyyathīdaṃ: cakkhundriyaṃ sotindriyaṃ ghānindriyaṃ jivhindriyaṃ kāyindriyaṃ. Imāni kho āvuso pañcindriyāni kiṃ paṭicca tiṭṭhantīti?
Pañcimāni āvuso indriyāni seyyathīdaṃ: cakkhundriyaṃ sotindriyaṃ ghānindriyaṃ jivhindriyaṃ kāyindriyaṃ. Imāni kho āvuso pañcindriyāni āyuṃ paṭicca tiṭṭhantīti

Āyu panāvuso kiṃ paṭicca tiṭṭhatīti.

Āyu usmaṃ paṭicca tiṭṭhatīti

Usmā panāvuso kiṃ paṭicca tiṭṭhatīti?

Usmā āyuṃ paṭicca tiṭṭhatīti.
