Bile produced in the liver is associated with which of the following?

(2) Digestive action of pancreatic amylase

(3) Emulsification of fats into tiny globules in the stomach

(4) Digestion of proteins into amino acids

 

 

Audio Explanation:


(1) The bile released into the duodenum contains bile pigments- bilirubin and bili-verdin, bile salts, cholesterol and phospholipids but no enzymes. Bile helps in emulsification of fats, i.e., breaking down of the fats into very small micelles. It also activates lipases. (page- 263)
