Digestive system
« on: 28/11/2007 20:23:34 »
Hey guys i got a few questions about my digestive system.

Can you tell me:

What MAIN enzymes are in the digestive system? Bile, Gastric juice, that kinda stuff.
Where are these enzymes produced?
Where abouts do these enzymes get to work?
What the enzymes act on?

Thanks.

Sorry, I don't have time to write it all out for you, but the answers should be reasonably well covered here:

In particular, have a look at the sections on the stomach (and its mucosa), the pancreas and the liver.
