Enzyme and digestion 6.9

HideShow resource information
What does the enzyme amylase do
breaks down starch in to maltose
1 of 12
what do the pancreatic juices do
they contain proteases to hydrolyse proteins, lipase to hydrolyse lipids, and amylase to hydrolyse starch
2 of 12
what is the process carbohydrate digestion
The enzyme amylase hydrolyses alternating glycosidic bonds of starch to produce maltose this is then hydrolysed by maltase to make alpha glucose.
3 of 12
why cant amylase break down maltose after the stomach
Because conditions are acidic which changes tertiary structure and denatures the enzyme
4 of 12
what are the alkaline salts called that maintain the ph concentration
bile salts
5 of 12
why is maltase not released into the ileum
because it is a membrane bound disaccharidase
6 of 12
what do lipases break down
triglycerides into into fatty acids and monoglycerides
7 of 12
what are the tiny droplets called that lipids are broken down into
micelles
8 of 12
what is the process called by which bile salts break up lipids into micelles
emulsification
9 of 12
what is the role of the endopeptidases
They hydrolyse the peptide bond between the amino acids in the central region of a protein forming a series of peptide molecules
10 of 12
what is the role of exopeptidases
Hydrolyse the peptide bonds on the terminal ends releasing dipeptides
11 of 12
what is the role of the dipeptidases
Hydrolyse the bond between the two amino acids a dipeptide dipeptidases are also membrane bound
