What cells make pepsinogen?

My teacher said they are produced by peptic cells. The answer is : chief cell,they produce and secrete pepsinogen
In Human Anatomy and Physiology

What changes pepsinogen to pepsin?

Evidence relating to the structure and properties of swine pepsinogen and pepsin has been reviewed and used to suggest a tentative two dimensional picture of the skeleton of t (MORE)
In Inorganic Chemistry

Is pepsinogen organic or inorganic?

Pepsinogen is an inactive form of the digestive enzyme pepsin. Almost all enzymes are proteins, and proteins are organic macromolecules.
In Science

What is the function of Pepsinogens?

\npepsinogens when pumped into the stomach and exposed to an acid environment form pepsin. pepsin is a protease breaking proteins down into amino acids.
In Digestive System

Pepsinogen digestive enzyme secreted by?

pepsinogen digestive enzyme secreted by stomach and it digests proteins.protein's digestion start in stomach and it lasts during intestine by chief cells of the stomach
In Biochemistry

Is pepsinogen and pepsin same?

Not exactly. Pepsinogen is the precursor to pepsin which is activated by hydrochloric acid in the stomach.
In Digestive System

How does pepsinogen change into its active form?

The proenzyme pepsinogen,on exposure to hydrochloric acid gets converted into active enzyme pepsin,the proteolytic enzyme of the stomach.Pepsin converts proteins into proteose (MORE)
In Human Anatomy and Physiology

Why is pepsin stored under pepsinogen?

Pepsinogen becomes pepsin when activated by the stomach's Hydrochloric acid. This protein digest proteins, it could not be produced nor stored in the body's cells in its activ (MORE)
In Human Anatomy and Physiology

Does pepsin secrete pepsinogen?

No, pepsin is the active form of pepsinogen. The hydrochloric acid in the stomach clips of portions of the pepsinogen to reveal the active site, turning it to pepsin.
In Biology

What does Pepsinogen break down?

Proteins Pepsinogen is the precursor form of pepsin, which is an enzyme that is released in the stomach which breaks proteins down into peptides.
