The remarkable achievement to identify and develop a suitable method to measure four key analytes from PRP, the two proenzymes, trypsinogen and chymotrypsinogen, as well as the activated enzymes, trypsin and chymotrypsin, is particularly significant due to the close structural similarity of each protein structure.
The dependent variables evaluated were the average weight and total length growth, survival, digestive enzymatic activity (alkaline proteases, acid proteases, trypsin, chymotrypsin, and lipase), as well as the relative expression of lipogenic genes: acetyl CoA carboxylase (ACC1) and fatty acid synthase (FAS).
The solution was incubated at 37 AdegC and the hydrolysis reaction was started by the addition of a chymotrypsin or trypsin solution (10 mg/mL) at an E:S ratio of 1:100.
Stool elastase or chymotrypsin testing may be used to assess the need for the latter.
The digestive enzyme pepsin begins protein digestion in the stomach, but Webb notes that most protein digestion happens in the small intestine, thanks to other proteases, including trypsin and chymotrypsin, that are secreted by the pancreas.
Trichoplusia ni larval midgut was obtained to evaluate trypsin and chymotrypsin activities from crude gut extracts.
We found statistically significant correlations between increased resistance to 5-fluorocytosine and higher enzymatic activity of alkaline phosphatase, chymotrypsin, and alpha-glucosidase; increased resistance to fluconazole and higher enzymatic activity of esterase and beta-glucosidase as well as increased susceptibility to ketoconazole and higher enzymatic activity of cystine arylamidase; increased susceptibility to fluconazole and higher enzymatic activity of mannosidase.
Alpha chymotrypsin, mucin, S 100 (Figure 3), and p63 (Figure 4) staining led us to make a diagnosis of BCAC (solid type).

Enzymes including elastase, P-isoamylase, chymotrypsin or immunoreactive trypsin, when are more tedious in estimation, expensive and at the same time they are also not much better when it comes to daignosis1.
