a molecule which is made up of linked amino acids.
A peptide containing 10 to more than 100 amino acids.
Linear polymer of amino acids connected by peptide bonds. Proteins are large polypeptides, and the two terms commonly are used interchangeably.
Any peptide containing two or more amino acids; often referred to simply as a peptide.
A linear polymer composed of covalently linked amino acids. Each link is formed by a single peptide bond. Sometimes used as a synonym for protein, but also describes non-natural and low-molecular-weight polymers.
Linear polymer composed of multiple amino acids. Proteins are large polypeptides, and the two terms can be used interchangeably.
A molecule made of amino acids covalently linked to each other by peptide bonds. Often, a term used to denote the amino acid chain of a protein before it assumes a functional three-dimensional configuration.
several amino acids linked together by a peptide bond.
A large molecule made up of many amino acids joined by peptide linkages. Large polypeptides are called proteins.
An arrangement of amino acids joined together by peptide bonds.
a chain of these peptides
a linear organic polymer consisting of a large number of amino acid
a linear polymer of amino acids in which the carboxyl group of one amino acid is covalently linked to the amino group of the next amino acid
a macromolecule consisting of a nonbranching sequence of amino acids, each connected to the next by a single peptide bond
an unbranched structure of many amino acid sequence bonded with peptide bonds
a polyamide that yields amino acids on hydrolysis but has a lower molecular weight than a protein and that is obtained by partial hydrolysis of proteins or by synthesis
a polymer comprising two or more amino acid residues (e
a polymeric compound comprised of covalently linked amino acid residues
a polymer of amino acids linked by peptide bonds
a polymer of two or more natural and/or unnatural amino acids, which are usually but not necessarily linked by amide bonds
a polymer whose monomer linkages are usually but not necessarily peptide bonds, and whose side groups are usually but not necessarily selected from the naturally occurring amino acid side groups such as hydrogen (glycine), methyl (alanine), etc
a series of chemically linked peptides (also known as amino acids)
a single polymer of amino acids
peptide containing anywhere between 10 and 100 molecules of amino acids. Synonomous with protein. Peptides can either be small proteins or part of a protein. Each polypeptide is the ultimate expression product of a gene.
The unique string of amino acids created by the translation of mRNA sequences. This may require additional polypeptide subunits and/or functional groups in order to form a complete holoprotein (see also protein).
Four or more amino acids linked together.
a chain of amino acids.
Long chain of amino acids joined by peptide bonds.
a molecule resulting from the union of two or more amino acids.
A polymer of peptides (amino acids), such as a protein.
A molecule consisting of many joined amino acids; not as a complex protein.
A molecule made up of a string of amino acids. A protein is an example of a polypeptide.
A linear molecule having two or more amino acids and at least one peptide group. Such molecules are referred to as dipeptides, tripeptides, tetrapeptides, etc., depending on the number of amino acids present.
any relatively long chain of amino acids linked by peptide bonds. Usually treated as synonymous with "protein," however the term polypeptide is not restricted to structures similar to those produced by organisms.
A peptide which on hydrolysis yields more than two amino acids, called tripeptides, tetrapeptides, etc.
(n) A group of peptide which is a substance combines two or more amino acids joined by peptide linkages
