Name of EnzymeSubstrateLocationTaskProducts
Salivary Amylase (likes pH level of around 6.2-7.4)Amylose in the mouthSaliva which is released from the salivary glandsAid in the hydrolysis of the starch amylose into the disaccharide maltose (glycocidic bond)Maltose, and Amylose
PepsinogenNo substrate, inactive form of pepsinProduced in the gastric glands and released into stomach as gastric juiceInactive form of pepsin which is used until released into the stomach so the enzyme does not eat away at the stomach, when Pepsinogen and hydrochloric acid are combined the active state, pepsin, is formedPepsinogen + HCL = Pepsin
PepsinProteinActivated in the stomach when pepsinogen and HCL reactAn enzyme that aids in the hydrolysis of protein (peptide links)Large peptides
LipaseLipidsSecreted from glands in the pancreas (pancreatic juice) to the duodenumAn enzyme that aids in the hydrolysis of ester links in lipids (ester links)Glycerol and a variety of fatty acids (saturated and unsaturated)
ErepsinLarge peptidesSecreted from the glands in the pancreas (pancreatic juice) into the duodenumAn enzyme that aids in the hydrolysis of short chain peptides (peptide links)Amino Acids
Trypsinogen (inactive protein digesting enzyme)No substrate, inactive form of TrypsinSecreted from the glands in the pancreas (pancreatic juice) into the duodenumInactive form of Trypsin which aids in the hydrolysis of large peptides (peptide links)Trypsinogen + enterokinase = trypsin
Pancreatic Amylase (likes pH level of around 6.2-7.4)Amylose, maltoseSecreted from the glands in the pancreas (pancreatic juice) into the duodenum, since stomach is so acidic (pH of 2-3) bi carbonate is released into the pancreatic juice to neutralize the pH levelAn enzyme which aids in the hydrolysis of amylose (glycocidic bond)Maltose, Alpha Glucose
EnterokinaseTrypsinogenSecreted from intestinal glands into duodenum (intestinal juice)Enzyme which activates trypsinTrypsinogen + enterokinase = Trypsin
TrypsinLarge PeptidesFormed when enterokinase activates it from its inactive for of trypsinogenAn enzyme which aids in the hydrolysis of large peptides (peptide links)Small peptides
MaltaseMaltoseSecreted from intestinal glands into duodenum (intestinal juice)An enzyme which aids in the hydrolysis of maltose into  monosaccharidesAlpha glucose + Alpha glucose
SucraseSucroseSecreted from intestinal glands into duodenum (intestinal juice)An enzyme which aids in the hydrolysis of sucrose into monosaccharidesAlpha glucose + Beta fructose
LactaseLactoseSecreted from intestinal glands into duodenum (intestinal juice)An enzyme which aids in the hydrolysis of lactose into monosaccharidesAlpha glucose + Alpha galactose
