Only the best enzyme EVER.

A protease is an enzyme, Right? Well, what it does is perform Proteolysis... whatever that is. Protein catabolism, I think... Catabolism is Greek, with κάτω kato, "downward" and βάλλειν ballein, "to throw". What that is is the set of metabolic pathways that breaks down molecules into smaller units of energy. Proteases have evolved multiple times, and different classes of protease can perform the same reaction by completely different catalytic mechanisms. Protease are found in animals (That includes humans) , plants and bacteria. I think thats about it... Comments would be nice...
