ROLE OF BODY FLUID PROTEINS IN PANCREAS. The pancreas has both endocrine and exocrine functions. The exocrine pancreas helps digest food particularly proteins. It also makes sodium carbonate which helps neutralize stomach acids. The endocrine pancreas makes the hormone insulin which helps to control blood sugar level. It also makes glucagon, a hormone involved in the regulation of blood sugar. Proteins are evaluated for better analysis of pancreas disorder. Pancreatic juice is a proximal body fluid ideal for analysis as it is of relatively low complexity therefore low abundant proteins are easily identified.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
