Reactions involved in proteins digestion in human body and what are the responsibile enzymes.

Dear student,
Protein digestion begins in the stomach .
Pepsin converts proteins into protease and peptones. These are then acted upon by Trysin/chymotrypsin and carboxypeptidase to form dipeptides. This coversion into dipeptides happens due to the pancreatic juice enzymes.
The enzymes of succus entericus which is dipeptidase acts on the dipeptides to convert them into amino acids. This thus completes the protein digestion in the intestine.
