Peptide bond says "Proteins from aminoacids"

  Proteins are the body building materials of most of the organisms.Proteins are otherwise known as polymers of aminoacids.Two aminoacid is bonded through a peptide bond to form a peptide.Further these peptides are connected to form polypeptides, which on combination forms proteins.
Peptide bond:
The -NH2 group of one aminoacid makes a bond with -COOH of another aminoacid by giving out a water molecule to form -CONH.This is known as peptide bond.
