Trypsin: A serine endopeptidase that is formed from TRYPSINOGEN in the pancreas. It is converted into its active form by ENTEROPEPTIDASE in the small intestine. It catalyzes hydrolysis of the carboxyl group of either arginine or lysine. EC 184.108.40.206.

Trypsin : EC 220.127.116.11; a serine endopeptidase that is formed from trypsinogen in the pancreas; it is converted into its active form by enteropeptidase in the small intestine; it catalyzes hydrolysis of the carboxyl group of either arginine or lysine.
Trypsin: Trypsin is one of the pancreatic enzymes, which are produced by the pancreas and play a role in digestion as a part of the pancreatic juice. Trypsin actually begins as a precursor fluid, trypsinogen, which is produced by the pancreatic acini. Trypsinogen is secreted though the pancreatic duct and then into duodenum of the small intestine where it is converted into trypsin. Once converted in the small intestine, trypsin breaks down polypeptides into amino acids as a part of the process of digesting chyme.
Conditions that can afflict trypsin include cystic fibrosis, pancreatic cancer, and pancreatitis.
