What is a human enzyme that functions well in pH 2?

Pepsin. It is located in the stomach. Pepsin helps with the breakdown of food and is a protein. A pH 2 is optimal for the human enzyme pepsin. If the pH level exceeds 7, pepsin becomes denatured or lose its structure; above pH 5,, it will increase function.


Can pepsin and trypsin function in the same environment?

no they can not because they at completely different pH levels.

What is the function of the stomach in digestion?

The function of the stomach is to churn and turn the food into a liquid called chyme. The stomach also releases pepsinogen and hydrochloric acid which mixes to produce pepsin. Pepsin emulsifies protein and then the contents move through the pyloric sphyncter and into the small intestine for further breakdown and digestion.
