Detailed Characterization of Membrane Digestion in Higher Animals
In this chapter we dwell in greater detail on such problems as the interrelationship of membrane digestion with cavital digestion and absorption, on the possible role of the motor function of the small intestine in the realization of enzymatic hydrolysis on the membrane surface, and others. At the same time certain problems will not be discussed to avoid repetition. It must be kept in mind that we are describing the membrane digestion of mammals, but it must be understood that many regularities are sufficiently general and, therefore, of significance toward the understanding of the hydrolytic processes on cell membranes of other classes and even species of animals.
