Trypsinogen (EC 3.4.23.18/20/21/23/24/26) is the precursor form of the pancreatic enzyme trypsin. It is activated by enterokinase, which is found in the intestinal mucosa, to form trypsin. Once activated, the tyrpsin can activate more trypsinogen into trypsin.


Serum trypsinogen is measured using a blood test. High levels are seen in acute pancreatitis, and cystic fibrosis.

Pancreas - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (801 words)
The cells are filled with secretory granules containing the pre-cursor digestive enzymes (mainly trypsinogen, chymotrypsinogen, pancreatic lipase, and amylase) that are secreted into the lumen of the acinus.
Control of the exocrine function of the pancreas are via the enzymes gastrin, cholecystokinin and secretin, which are enzymes secreted by cells in the stomach and duodenum, in response to distension and/or food and which cause secretion of pancreatic juices.
Once released in the intestine, the enzyme enterokinase present in the intestinal mucosa activates trypsinogen by cleaving it to form trypsin.
