Expert Answer
  • The function of intestinal juice (succus entericus) is to complete the process begun by pancreatic juice; the enzyme trypsin exists in pancreatic juice in the inactive form trypsinogen, it is activated by the intestinal enterokinase in intestinal juice.
  • Trypsin can then activate other protease enzymes and catalyze the reaction pro-colipase --> colipase. Colipase is necessary, along with Bile Salts, to enable Lipase function.
  • Intestinal juice also contains hormones, digestive enzymes, mucus, substances to neutralize hydrochloric acid coming from the stomach and erepsin which further digests polypeptides into amino acids, completing protein digestion.
