I search polypeptides at Wikipedia.org, "The World's Encyclopedia" and got the Related Link below.

The first line read...

Peptides (from the Greek πεπτίδια, "small digestibles") are short polymers formed from the linking, in a defined order, of α-amino acids. The link between one amino acid residue and the next is known as an amide bond or a peptide bond.
