In direct tests, however, practically no tryptic activity was demonstrated.
This ferment, called by them galactase, on account of its origin in milk, is a proteolytic enzym of the tryptic type.
The preparation was found to be practically inert—essentially a weak saccharated pepsin, devoid of tryptic activity.
tryptic: acting like tripsin, the proteolytic ferment of the pancreatic fluid.
As stated at the outset, whatever the tryptic activity of the mixture, it is therapeutically useless.
A demonstration of tryptic activity in a mixture containing both pepsin and pancreatin is of merely theoretical interest.
Those of Professor Hawk show a tryptic activity of from 18 to 20 per cent.
The figures for tryptic activity given by Dr. Benedict do not differ materially from those of the first referee.
This can be ascribed only to tryptic activity under the conditions of this experiment.
Bayliss and Starling state that it is destroyed by one hours tryptic digestion.
chief digestive enzyme of pancreatic juice, 1876, apparently from Greek tripsis "rubbing" + chemical suffix -in (2). Said to be so called because it first was obtained by rubbing the pancreas with glycerin.

Relating to or resulting from trypsin.
