You administer a pepsin competitive inhibitor and a noncompetitive block to the enzyme of interest. What can be said about the content of proteins in the stomach, and the speed(Vmax) of which proteins are being digested?

Competitive inhibitors don't affect the \(V_{max}\), but non-competitive inhibitors lower it (although I'm note sure if it's a pepsin inhibitor as well). Do you know what the "enzyme of interest" is?

oh okay, i thought it might have been another enzyme. We'll as i said, \(V_{max}\) isn't altered by competitive inhibitors, but it's lowered by non-competitive inhibitors. I'm sure you know what pepsin does, so i'll leave you to speculate on what the state of the proteins would be.
