The traditional understanding is that an entirely new complement of digestive enzymes is secreted by the pancreas into the small intestines with each meal. This is thought to be necessary because, like food itself, these enzymes are degraded during digestion. In this review we discuss experiments that bring this point of view into question. They suggest that digestive enzymes can be absorbed into blood, reaccumulated by the pancreas, and reutilized, instead of being reduced to their constituent… Expand
The activity of pancreatic enzymes on different stages of metabolism in broiler chicks
TLDR
The physiological investigation showed that complex-reflex regulatory phase of pancreatic secretion continues during 120 min after feeding with the subsequent transition to neurohumoral phase (mediated by secretion of hormones secretin and cholecystokinine into the blood stream) when chymus reaches the intestine.

Making Sense of Digestive Enzymes
Enzymes are functional proteins essential to all living systems. In humans, enzymes act as catalysts for numerous chemical reactions including the digestion of dietary macronutrients. In the earlyExpand
New Approaches to Evaluation of Digestive Function in Chickens
TLDR
The calculation of the blood digestive enzyme index as the ratio of the total lipase and amylase activities to the trypsin activity has been proposed to evaluate the physiological condition and health of the digestive system in the animals. Expand
Mechanisms of Regulation for Serine Protease Activity in the Rat Ileocecal Junction
TLDR
Reverse zymography results suggest that a previously unknown inhibitor of about 30 kDa for trypsin may be present in the cecal wall but absent in the small or large intestinal homogenates, and mass spectroscopy results suggest an immunoglobulin heavy chain antibody may be the source of the unknown inhibitor. Expand
Are intact peptides absorbed from the healthy gut in the adult human?
TLDR
It is concluded that there is little unequivocal evidence that dietary bioactive peptides, other than di- and tripeptides, can cross the gut wall intact and enter the hepatic portal system in physiologically relevant concentrations. Expand
The Correlation between the Activities of Digestive Enzymes in the Pancreas and Blood Serum in Chicken
TLDR
The strong positive correlation between tryptic activities in the pancreas or pancreatic juice and in blood serum in chicken can be a starting point for further research on the functions of circulatory trypsin which can include the regulation of exocrine pancreatic activity and other vital functions.

General Principles of Gastrointestinal Function — Motility , Nervous Control , and Blood Circulation
  • 2015
The alimentary tract provides the body with a continual supply of water, electrolytes, vitamins, and nutrients. To achieve this requires (1) movement of food through the alimentary tract; (2)Expand
Role of pancreatic enzymes in the development of multiple organ failure after shock
TLDR
The literature surrounding the hypothesis that digestive enzymes produced by the pancreas are involved in the initiation of the systemic inflammatory response after shock and, ultimately, contribute to multiorgan failure and death is reviewed. Expand
Effects of Exogenous Multi-enzyme Feed Additive (Kemzyme) on the Activities of Certain Digestive Enzymes and Intestinal Morphology in Growing Rabbits
TLDR
It was obvious that the higher growth rate in kemzyme-supplemented rabbits was associated with improved digestive enzymatic activities and intestinal morphology, and it seemed that the exogenous enzymes did not get affected by the endogenous proteolytic activity of the gastro intestinal tract. Expand
Alterations in digestive enzyme activities during the development of diet-induced enteritis in Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar L.
TLDR
The data suggests an immediate and generalized physiological response to a change in diet and/or feed intake in all regions of the intestine, as well as a more localized functional loss in the DI that progressed with the development of SBM-induced inflammation from day 5. Expand

Enteropancreatic circulation of digestive enzymes.
TLDR
The pancreas appears to be able to recycle proteins much as the liver recycles bile salts, although the magnitude of this process remains uncertain. Expand
Enteropancreatic circulation of digestive enzyme as a conservation mechanism
TLDR
The experiments reported here are consistent with this latter view and suggest the circulation of approximately 60% of a mixture of digestive enzymes instilled into the duodenum (82–92% at steady state). Expand
Distribution and fate of pancreatic enzymes in small intestine of the rat.
TLDR
Diversion of pancreatic juice to the exterior of the body resulted in rapid disappearance of enzymes from the small intestine with virtually complete absence after 16 hr. Expand
Enteropancreatic circulation of digestive enzymes does not exist in the rat
The hypothesis of an enteropancreatic circulation1–3, that digestive enzymes are absorbed intact across the intestinal epithelium, are circulated through the bloodstream and rese-creted by theExpand
The endocrine secretion of mammalian digestive enzymes by exocrine glands.
TLDR
A variety of evidence suggests that the endocrine secretion of digestive enzymes is a normal occurrence that can be of substantial magnitude in healthy individuals, is responsive to various physiological stimuli, and is distinct from exocrine secretion. Expand
Absorption of exogenous and endogenousproteolytic enzymes
TLDR
The method described does not seem to be useful as a pancreatic function test because it indicates absorption of the enzymes administered rather than release of secondary enzymes from the intestinal tract. Expand
Permeability of adolescent rat intestine to pancreatic ribonuclease.
TLDR
The experimental data favor simple diffusion of RNase across rat small bowel, but the amounts of pancreatic RNase absorbed were small, and while the data do not negate the concept of an enteropancreatic recirculation in the rat, only a minor quantity of luminal, pancreaticRNase could recirculate.

The characterization of rat intestinal amylase.
TLDR
Pancreatic contamination of intestinal mucosa was extremely difficult to eliminate and pancreatic contamination must be carefully excluded as a source of enzymatic activity when studying intestinal enzymes. Expand
The physiology of secretin.
TLDR
The mucosal lining of the alimentary tube forms a number of hormones which regulate the motor and secretory activities of the organs of digestion, including secretin, which is the subject of this chapter. Expand
Effect of feeding on the protein synthesis in mammalian pancreas.
TLDR
It is concluded that continuous protein synthesis (at a constant rate) is a general feature of the mammalian pancreas under normal conditions. Expand
