proteolysis

proteolysis

 [pro″te-ol´ĭ-sis]
the splitting of proteins by hydrolysis of the peptide bonds, with formation of smaller polypeptides.

pro·te·ol·y·sis

(prō'tē-ol'i-sis),
The decomposition of protein; primarily via the hydrolysis of peptide bonds, both enzymatically and nonenzymatically.
[proteo- + G. lysis, dissolution]

/pro·te·ol·y·sis/ (-ol´ĭ-sis) the splitting of proteins by hydrolysis of the peptide bonds with formation of smaller polypeptides.proteolyt´ic

proteolysis

(prō′tē-ŏl′ĭ-sĭs)
n.
The hydrolytic breakdown of proteins into peptides and amino acids, as occurs during digestion.

proteolysis

[prō′tē·ol′isis]
Etymology: Gk, proteios + lysis, loosening
a process in which water added to the peptide bonds of proteins breaks down the protein molecule into simpler substances. Numerous enzymes may catalyze this process. The action of mineral acids and heat also may induce proteolysis. proteolytic, adj.

(prō'tē-ol'i-sis)
The decomposition of protein; primarily through hydrolysis of peptide bonds, both enzymatically and nonenzymatically.
[proteo- + G. lysis, dissolution]

proteolysis

the splitting of protein molecules by the HYDROLYSIS of their PEPTIDE BONDS.
