Peptides are naturally occurring biologically functional molecules. Peptides are found in all living organisms and play a key role in all manner of biological activity. Peptides and proteins are formed (synthesized) naturally from transcription of a sequence of the genetic code, DNA. A chain of amino acids is joined together by peptide bonds to form a single molecule. When a molecule consists of 2-50 amino acids it is called a peptide, whereas a larger chain of > 50 amino acids generally is referred to as a protein.
