  • Enzymes
    • Protease
      • breaks down protein molecules into amino acids
      • Pepsin
        • pepsin is a  protease
          • produced in the stomach, small intestine and pancreas
            • breaks down protein molecules into amino acids
    • Lipase
      • breaks down fat molecules into fatty acids and glycerol
        • released by the pancreas into the duodenum
    • biological catalyst that speeds up reactions; they are proteins
    • Amylase
      • released by salivary glands into mouth, and by pancreas into small intestine
    • Maltase
      • released by the wall of the small intestine
        • breaks down maltose to glucose (monomer)
    • Trypsin
      • released by the pancreas into the small intestine
        • continues digestion of protein by amino acids
