Polypeptide Chain
Synthesis: A Paper
Simulation Actitivy
Are organic polymers.
◦ Polymers are composed of monomers.
 A monomer is a repeating structural unit
What is the repeating structural unit for a protein?
The amino acid

Involves two amino acids.
 Involves a dehydration synthesis.
 Involves a chemical reaction that occurs
between two specific areas of the amino
 Requires an –OH group and an –H from
another –OH group
Polypeptide Synthesis
Think about these questions:
What is a polypeptide chain?
2. What two functional groups are involved
in polypeptide synthesis?
3. How can water form during the synthesis
of a polypeptide chain?
Proteins are many chained structures.
Are organic polymers composed of monomers called amino
acids. How many amino acids are in this chain?
 Strands of amino acids are called polypeptide chains. Where
are the peptide bonds?
Is this a complete protein? No
