In the early history of physiology there was, quite naturally, little or no thought given to the nature of proteolytic changes.
This ferment, called by them galactase, on account of its origin in milk, is a proteolytic enzym of the tryptic type.
One of our conceptions regarding pepsin-proteolysis is that acid is necessary for every step in the proteolytic process.
Antipeptone, on the other hand, is incapable of further change by the proteolytic ferment trypsin.
These ferments may belong to either of the following well-recognised classes: proteolytic, diastatic, invertin, rennet.
This fact affords additional evidence of the profound changes set in motion by this proteolytic enzyme.
This author, however, associates their activity with proteolytic rather than with carbohydrate metabolism.
Tryptic: acting like tripsin, the proteolytic ferment of the pancreatic fluid.
proteolytic pro·te·o·lyt·ic (prō'tē-ə-lĭt'ĭk)
Relating to, characterized by, or promoting proteolysis.
proteolysis pro·te·ol·y·sis (prō'tē-ŏl'ĭ-sĭs)
The hydrolytic breakdown of proteins into simpler, soluble substances, as occurs in digestion.
