Abstract 1. A pepsinogen, Ia on the basis of its electrophoretic mobility, from rainbow trout stomach, has an optimum pH near 2 for activation. 2. The cognate pepsin is denatured at pH values above 7, in contrast to the zymogen, which is slightly more alkali-stable. It has an optimum pH of 3 for proteolysis of denatured hemoglobin. 3. The intrinsic reactivity of the zymogen and pepsin (rates of activation and of proteolysis, respectively) are quite high, but as they operate at the environmental temperature of the fish, are remarkably similar to rates of activation and proteolysis by mammalian pepsinogens and pepsins.
