Amino Acid Peptide Linkage Formation and Hydrolysis Reactions

Amino Acid Peptide Linkage and Hydrolysis Reactions by Leah FischAmino acids are the building blocks of living things. This makes the process of making/breaking bonds critical to understanding biological sciences.

This video walks you through the formation of an amino acid bond – the peptide bond, as well as breaking the bonds through hydrolysis.
