Pancreatic Enzymes * Amylase * hydrolyses starch to maltose (a glucose-glucose disaccharide), as well as the trisaccharide maltotriose and small branchpoints fragments called limit dextrins. * Other Pancreatic Enzymes * ribonuclease * deoxyribonuclease * gelatinase * elastase * Bicarbonate and Water Epithelial cells in pancreatic ducts are the source of the bicarbonate and water secreted by the pancreas...
