ENZYMES

WHAT IS INCORRECT MATCH TO ITS SUBSTRATE?


I PEPSIN-PROTEIN
II TRYPSIN-NUCLEIC ACID
III SALIVARY AMYLASE-STARCH
IV LIPASE -FAT
V MALATASE- MALTOSE


WELL, IM POSITIVE CAUSE I INVESTIGATED, READ ETC ETC THAT I, III, IV, ARE CORRECT WHERE I DOUBT IS IN THE II AND THE V,ALMOST SURE V IS CORRECT BECAUSE MALTASE BREAKS DOWN MALTOSE IN THE SMALL INTESTINE AND TRYPSIN WHAT IT HAS TO DO WITH NUCLEIC ACID THAT I THINK IS DNA RELATED?

yup, that's right.
trypsin has nothing to do with nucleic acid at all

trypsin and also chymotrypsin perform similar functions=digestion of protein

Well you are right!Trypsin like all the other enzymes listed is a digestive enzyme and has to do with nutrition.However nucleic acid is genetic material and has nothing to do with nutrition.
