I'm trying to find out if pepsin can break down proteins into amino acids after they are converted to peptides. Is pepsin able to separate amino acid monomers from the peptides? can you please show me the actual reaction happening in the process? I'm a 10th-grade student so please describe it as suitable for my knowledge. thanks in advance.
