  • Name of Substrate is protein
  • Source of Enzyme performs proteolysis, that is, begins protein catabolism by hydrolysis of the peptide bonds that link amino acids together in a polypeptide chain
  • Description of reaction and why the reaction is important Proteases cleave proteins by a hydrolysis reaction—the addition of a molecule of water to a peptide bond this is important because it breaks up protein.
  • Optimum temperature and pH of the enzyme.The protease enzyme was highly active and stable from pH 6.0 to 9.0 with an optimumat pH 7. Its optimum temperature was 37˚C
