Nomenclature Protein – linear polymer of condensed amino acids Condensation – the removal of water to form a bond Hydrolysis – the addition of water to break a bond Residue – an amino acid incorporated into a protein Peptide bond – the amide bond formed between amino acids Polypeptide – short protein polymers, < 100 amino acid residues, > 100 residues is considered a protein Oligopeptide – short peptide < 10 (or 20) residues, can also use prefixes di-, tri-, tetra-, penta-peptide, etc.

The ribosome, a massive RNA-protein complex, catalyzes the condensation of amino acids as part of the process known as translation. Proteases and peptidases are enzymes that hydrolyze the condensation product Ribosomes Proteases

The pentapeptide is ser-gly-tyr-ala-leu or SGYAL Peptide bonds are amides, the polymer has n-1 peptide bonds in the backbone The first residues has a free amine group – the N terminus The last residue has a free carboxyl group – the C terminus By convention, we report sequences from N to C
