What Bond forms between adjacent amino acids during a condensation reaction?

The bond which forms between adjacent amino acids during a condensation reaction is called a peptide bond.

What is the joining of amino acids called?


What type of reaction joins two amino acids together?

When amino acids combine to form proteins or polypeptides a condensation reaction occurs. The carboxyl group of one molecule reacts with the amine group of the other molecule. One molecule of water is released and this results in C(O)NH, or a peptide bond. Condensation is the reaction: the opposite process is termed Hydrolysis.

Define the type of chemical reaction involved in the formation of a peptide linkage between two amino acids and state the other product in addition to a dipetide?

The type of chemical reaction involved is called the "dehydration synthesis reaction".

What is definition of protein?

Proteins are bio polymer of amino acids which are formed by condensation polymerization. By elimination of water molecules peptide {(-OC-NH-)n} chains are formed.

What types of bonds link amino acids?

Amino acids are linked together by peptide bonds to form peptide chains. This bond is between the carboxylic acid group of one amino acid and the amino group of another react in a dehydration reaction.

What is the linkage or bond that is formed between two amino acids to form a protein?

It is called a peptide bond. It is formed by a condensation reaction (that is a reaction where water is produced). When two amino acids join a dipeptide is formed. A typical protein contains many thousands of amino acids all joined together by peptide bonds.

What joins molecules by removing water?

Sulfuric acid can cause condensation reactions to speed up.

What are the similarities between addition polymerization and condensation polymerization?

Polymerization describes the formation of of large molecules (polymers) with repeating structure from smaller molecules (monomers) . The word polymer comes from Greek words meaning many (poly-) and parts (-mer). Many of the resulting molecules are plastics, so polymer is occasionally used in place of the word plastic, though this is not an accurate usage. Polymerization is an all-encompassing term that describes formation of polymers by any method.There are two main types of polymerization; addition polymerization and condensation polymerization. Addition polymerization creates larger molecules by opening up double bonds on the smaller molecules (monomers). These opened-up bonds react with parts of other monomers (single part) to form dimers (double part). This reaction can repeat to add another molecule to for a trimer (three part). This continues until you obtain the right size molecule and you stop the reaction. Addition polymerixation can occur using a single type of monomer. There are no by products of the reaction except the longer chain molecules (polymers).In condensation polymerization, two monomers of different types are used. They have different types of reactive (or functional) groups on them. A reaction between monomer A and monomer B results in a dimer, plus another small molecule (often water) that is not part of the polymer. To create long polymers the monomers must have reactive groups on both ends or a chain cannot be formed.Polymerization is an all-encompassing term for creating polymers by any method. Condensation Polymerization is a term denoting a specific type of reaction for creating polymers.

What is the process that makes polymers?

Polysaccharides are formed by the condensation of individual monosaccharides - in the process glycosidic bonds are formed and one molecule of water is released per bond. This is a dehydration synthesis. Formation of proteins by the joining of individual amino acids via peptide bonds is also a dehydration synthesis with one molecule of water being produced per peptide bond.

What are the products produced during a peptide bond formation?

A Water molecule or a molecule of H2O is released when a peptide bond is formed between two molecules.

What happens when amino acids are joined to form a polypeptide chain?

An amino acid links with another amino acid through a condensation reaction to form a peptide bond. This process continues until a polypeptide chain is formed.
