What are the Enzymes of Carbohydrate Digestion? Salivary amylase (ptyalin), Pancreatic amylase, Maltase, Sucrase, Lactase... PLASMAS.
What are the Enzymes of Protein Digestion? Pepsin, Trypsin, Chymotrypsin, Carboxypeptidase, Aminopeptidase, Dipeptidases, Enterokinase... ACCEPT'D
Salivary Amylase (ptyalin). Site of Production? Site of function? Action? Salivary Glands. Mouth. Starch ->Maltose.
Pancreatic amylase. Site of Production? Site of function? Action? Pancreas. Small Intestine. Starch -> Maltose.
Maltase. Site of Production? Site of function? Action? Intestinal Glands. Small Intestine. Maltose -> 2 Glucose.
Sucrase. Site of Production? Site of function? Action? Intestinal Glands. Small Intestine. Sucrose -> Glucose + Fructose
Lactase. Site of Production? Site of function? Action? Intestinal Glands. Small Intestine. Lactose -> Glucose + Galactose.
Pepsin. Site of Production? Site of function? Action? Gastric glands (chief cells). Stomach. Hydrolyzes specific peptide bonds.
Trypsin. Site of Production? Site of function? Action? Pancreas. Small Intestine. Hydrolyzes specific peptide bonds. Converts chymotrypsinogen to chymotrypsin.
Chymotrypsin. Site of Production? Site of function? Action? Pancreas. Small Intestine. Hydrolyzes specific peptide bonds.
Carboxypeptidase. Site of Production? Site of function? Action? Pancreas. Small Intestine. Hydrolyzes terminal peptide bond at carboxyl
Aminopeptidase. Site of Production? Site of function? Action? Intestinal Glands. Small Intestine. Hydrolyzes terminal peptide bond at amino.
Dipeptidase. Site of Production? Site of function? Action? Intestinal Glands. Small Intestine. Hydrolyzes pair of amino acids.
Enterokinase. Site of Production? Site of function? Action? Intestinal Glands. Small Intestine. Converts trypsinogen to trypsin.
What is the fat emulsifier involved in lipid digestion? Where is it made? Where does it function? Where is it stored? Hint: Not a hormone. Bile. Liver. Small intestine. Gall Bladder.
What is the enzyme that hydrolyzes lipids? Where is it made? Where does it function? Lipase. Pancreas. Small Intestine.
What is Pancreatic Juice? Where does it come from? How is this triggered? Clear alkaline (contains bicarbonate) digestive fluid secreted by the Pancreas which helps neutralize the acidic chyme. Triggered by Secretin and CCK (cholecystokinin).
