What do proteins turn into when they are digested?
When completely digested they become amino acids.
the mouth, stomach and small intestine
Protein that digest in the digestive system occurs first in thestomach and then the small intestine. The enzymes that are secretedby the pancreas will help with the digestion …process.
protein is digested into calcium
Proteins are digested by the enzyme Protease. They are digested in the stomach.
Pepsin digest protein in the acidic environment of the stomach, Pancreatic Protease digests protein in the basic environment of the small intestine.
Proteases are a group of the digestive enzymes whose function is to break down protein. Protein digestion begins in your stomach, primarily with the action of the hydrochloric… acid that is produced there, and by the enzyme called pepsin. The protein-containing foods are broken apart, separating out the protein, then the proteins are broken into their constituent parts, the amino acids, through hydrolysis. Hydrolysis involves the insertion of a water molecule between two amino acids, which forces the bond between them to break. Your pancreas produces two other proteases, trypsin and chymotrypsin, and secretes them into the upper portion of the small intestine, where they continue to hydrolyze proteins. Because amino acids have very small dimensions, they are able to penetrate the intestinal lining. The amino acids are absorbed through selectively permeable membranes of the small intestine walls, which are arranged in folds called villi, by the blood in the capillaries of the small intestines, carried through the liver, and then go into general circulation. Proteases can break down undigested protein, cellular debris, toxins, and certain bacteria and viruses in the blood, sparing the immune system this task. The immune system is then free to fight other infections. Many plant seeds contain protease inhibitors that interfere with the absorption of their valuable proteins. These serve to protect the seed from being digested by an animal so that it is deposited intact in manure fertilizer, far from the parent plant to propagate. Protease inhibitors also combat cancer by preventing the synthesis of key proteins required for cancer cells to divide. Protease inhibitors block the initiation of the cancer process and also destroy premalignant cells. Soaking seeds in water to the point of germination greatly reduces the protease inhibitors, as does cooking seeds.
well with out protein you will be as week as a cat but not only protein makes you strong, you need carbohydrates to make your protein work. You might be thinking specificall…y about Pepsin. This enzyme is in the stomach and it digests proteins into peptides. Source: Wikipedia!
first it is broken into peptides and then into amino acids.
During digestion proteins are broken down into amino acids , their component building blocks..
proteins are digested by enzymes, called proteasees.Trypsin, pepsin are stomach enzymes that digest proteins into peptides. They further degraded by peptidases to form amino a…cids.
yes we digest protein everyday when and with what ever we eat
Proteins that carry out enzymatic activity are known as enzymes. Enzymes can catalyze the conversion of substrate into the product. In digestion hydrolytic enzymes such as pro…teases, lipases, glycosidases such as amylase digest proteins, lipases, and carbohydrates respectively.
