What is the role of trypsin in digestion?
They decompose proteins into smaller molecules, called peptides.
This happens in the duodenum, where the pancreatic juice reaches the gastrointestinal tube. Trypsin is a part of the pancreatic juices that help decompose food molecules into smaller pieces. More specific, trypsin is used as a catalyst for proteins hydrolisis, where they are turned into peptides. Later on, the peptides will be decomposed into aminoacids, the final product of the digestion of proteins.
