Activity 3 Assessing Pepsin Digestion of Protein

1.  Was your prediction correct about the optimal pH for pepsin activity?  Discuss the physiological correlation behind the result.

2.  What do you think would happen if you reduced the incubation time to 30 minutes for tube 5?

The correct prediction is pH 2.0. This is because pepsin is most active at the pH of gastric juice which is about pH 2.0.

If the incubation time were reduced, it is possible that no digestion of protein would be seen since only a small amount is seen.
