Definitions for "Trypsin"

Digestive enzyme used in cell culture laboratories to dissolve the natural "glue" that fibroblasts and other cells secrete that causes the cells to stick to culture vessels. This "trypsinizing" of the cultured cells causes the cells to detach from the culture vessel so that they can be transferred to another container.
