                i) Peptide linkage

Answers (1)


Peptide linkage is an amide bond formed between –COOH group and –NH2 group. The reaction between two molecules of either different or similar amino acids proceeds by the combination of the amino group of one molecule with the carboxyl group of the other molecule. This will result in the elimination of a water molecule and formation of a peptide bond –CO–NH–.
