Proteases are enzymes which break down proteins. Each enzyme can only break down one substance (they are specific to one substrate).

This is because their active site has a specific shape to fit a protein and will not fit a starch molecule.

Not necessarily. There are amylases, which are good at breaking down starch, and then there are proteases, which break down proteins.
