There are three main enzymes involved: pepsin (secreted by the stomach), trypsin and chymotrypsin (both secreted by the pancreas). Pepsin is secreted as its inactive precursor, called pepsinogen. The transformation of pepsinogen into pepsin occurs rapidly at pH 2.0 but slows down dramatically at pH 5.0. Furthermore, […]
