Trypsinogen (EC 220.127.116.11/20/21/23/24/26) is the precursor form or zymogen of
trypsin, a digestive enzyme. Produced by the pancreas, it is found in pancreatic ...
The premature activation of trypsinogen in the pancreatic interstitium, with the
subsequent activation of other pancreatic zymogens, is believed to lead to the ...
Trypsinogen is a substance that is normally produced in the pancreas and
released into the small intestine. Trypsinogen is converted to trypsin. Then it
starts the ...
During pancreatits, anionic trypsinogen becomes the predominant isoforms
secreted from the pancreas, and there is an increased level of zymogen in serum.

In the pancreatic juice entering the small intestine, the zymogen trypsinogen is
activated by the brush–border endoprotease enteropeptidase (enterokinase).
Trypsin, produced in an inactive form by the pancreas, is remarkably similar in
chemical composition and in structure to the other chief pancreatic proteinase, ...
