Proteolysis is the process of breaking down proteins into smaller peptides and amino acids. It plays an important role in many cellular processes, such as cell growth and development, immune system functionality, and nutrient absorption. It is also essential for the digestion of dietary proteins, as well as for the recycling of proteins in the body. Proteolysis helps the human body in many ways, such as regulating the activity of other proteins and helping to build muscle. It is an important step in many biological and biochemical processes, including the regulation of certain hormones and the digestion of certain drugs.
