chymotrypsinogen

 [ki″mo-trip-sin´o-jen]
the inactive precursor of chymotrypsin, the form in which it is secreted by the pancreas.

chy·mo·tryp·sin·o·gen

(kī'mō-trip-sin'ō-jen),
The precursor of chymotrypsin. Converted to π-chymotrypsin by the action of trypsin.

chymotrypsinogen

/chy·mo·tryp·sin·o·gen/ (-trip-sin´ŏ-jen) an inactive proenzyme secreted by the pancreas and cleaved by trypsin in the small intestine to yield chymotrypsin.

chymotrypsinogen

[kī′mōtripsin′əjən]
a substance produced in the pancreas that is the zymogen precursor to the enzyme chymotrypsin. It is converted to chymotrypsin by trypsin.

chy·mo·tryp·sin·o·gen

(kī'mō-trip-sin'ō-jen)

chymotrypsinogen

the inactive precursor of CHYMOTRYPSIN.

chymotrypsinogen

By the present invention, trypsinogen is converted to trypsin and chymotrypsinogen to chymotrypsin by pre-activation to a maximum and is then dried and defatted simultaneously as hereinafter described, while this high enzymatic activity is held substantially without change, to produce highly active raw powders equal in activity to the fresh gland.
