Your mission, if you choose to accept it is to find out all about peptide bonds

He is a sleek, suave bond between the alpha amino group of one amino acid and the alpha carboxyl group of another (CO-NH)      *ooooh*

He can bring amino acids together just by his presence… and a little loss of water (condensation)      *aaaahhh*

Get him mad, and he’ll hydrolyse your amino ASS-id (amino acid chain)      *shut your mouth*

If he joins 2 A.A’s together it’s called a dipeptide

If he joins 3 A.A’s together it’s called a tripeptide

If he joins many A.A’s together it’s called a polypeptide

And if he joins many polypeptides…….. well you know he’s making a protein babeh! (over 5000 g/mol)     *dayyuum*

Some people know him as amide bond but to us, he is…. Peptide bond.

This message will self destruct in 3..2…….
