Biology B2: Enzymes & Digestion

HideShow resource information
What does Amylase convert starch into?
Amylase converts starch into sugars!
1 of 13
Where is amylase made?
Amylase is made in the salivary glads, the pancreas & the small intestine!
2 of 13
What does protease do?
Protease converts proteins into amino acids!
3 of 13
What does lipase do?
Lipase converts lipids into glycerol and fatty acids!
4 of 13
What does bile do?
Bile neutralises the stomach acid and emulsifies fats!
5 of 13
What does the liver produce?

8 of 13
What is in the rectum?
Faeces (made up of mainly indigestible food) are stored!
9 of 13
What does the small intestine store and absorb?
Protease, amylease and lipase enzymes! It absorbs digested food into the blood
10 of 13
What does the pancreas do?
The same as the small intestine, but does not absorb the digested food. The protease, amylase and lipase it produces released into the small intestine?
11 of 13
What does the stomach produce?
The protease enzyme, pepsin. It also produces hydrochloric acid
12 of 13
Why does the stomach produce hydrochloric acid?
To kill bacteria & to give the right pH for the protease enzyme to work (pH 2 - acidic)
