Caption: Pepsinogen and pepsin. Computer-generated models of molecules of the stomach enzymes pepsinogen and pepsin. Atoms are depicted as spheres; dark blue atoms are carbon. At left is pepsinogen, the non- active form of pepsin. Pepsinogen has a 44-peptide segment (red) that conceals its active site. This segment is cleaved off when hydrochloric acid is secreted by the stomach. The resulting enzyme pepsin (at right) splits proteins in acid solution, thereby contributing to the digestive process. The active site of pepsin is the cleft
