The DNA carries the 'plans' for the structure of every protein molecule manufactured by the cells. Since the proteins include the enzymes and since the enzymes are responsible for the manufacture of all non-protein substances in a cell, the DNA is in the end responsible for the manufacture of all substances made by each cell. CELL DEVELOPMENT The most important constituents of the human fertilised egg are the forty-six chromosomes, twenty-three derived from the father's sperm and twenty-three from the mother's ovum.

2. Cholesterol. This steroid is secreted in large amounts by the bile. 17 The bile system. 3. Alkaline phosphatase. This is an enzyme which is made in the bones and which is removed from the blood 34 An Introduction to Human Physiology by the liver.

Rarely, if the bone marrow is destroyed, the liver may take up its old role and start manufacturing red cells again.

3. The pancreatic juice which is poured into the duodenum also contains amylase which completes the breakdown of starch to the disaccharide maltose. The bicarbonate in the pancreatic juice neutralises the gastric acid and so allows the enzyme to work. 4. The wall of the intestine itself manufactures enzymes which break down the disaccharides to monosaccharides. Maltase breaks down maltose to glucose. Lactase breaks down lactose to glucose and galactose. Sucrase (sometimes known as invertase) breaks down sucrose to glucose and fructose.
