So, what is chymotrypsin?

Chymotrypsin is a digestive enzyme that plays an essential role in breaking down proteins into smaller peptides. It is produced in the pancreas and secreted into the small intestine, where it helps to digest proteins from food. Chymotrypsin is also used in various industrial applications, such as the production of cheese and meat products. As a therapeutic agent, chymotrypsin is used to reduce inflammation, swelling, and pain associated with various medical conditions, including arthritis, bronchitis, and sinusitis. This enzyme is a valuable tool for researchers studying the structure and function of proteins, as well as the mechanisms of protein digestion and absorption in the body.
