What is protein cutting enzymes?
A protein cutting enzyme does just that, it "cuts" proteins. Enzymes are merely bases that act as a puzzle piece by which molecules (i.e. proteins) connect to if they match, like a puzzle, and break down more easily than acids, antibodies, and etc. alone.
All the digestive enzymes are made of protein, yet some of them are protein-digesting enzymes. If they were all dumped into the same "pot" the protein digesting enzymes would quickly destroy the other enzymes, and the whole process would grind to a halt. The body must separate protein digestion from other processes.
Enzymes have two types on the basis of their structure and parts. i. Simple Enzymes: are composed of globular protein only.Globular proteins are spherical or ellipsoidal due to multiple folding of peptide chains. Amino acids linked together by peptide bonds. ii. Conjugated Enzymes: have two parts. a: protein portion b: non-protein part Protein part of conjugated enzymes is called apoenzyme and non protein part is called cofactor. This entire active complex is referred to as…
Many enzymes consist of a protein and a non-protein (called the cofactor). The proteins in enzymes are usually globular. This is the tertiary structure of a protein. These globular proteins include enzymes and immunoglobins. The structures are held in place by hydrogen bonds, disulfide bridges and ionic bonds.
