The basic distinguishes is structure. Peptides are smaller than proteins. Traditionally, peptides are defined as molecules that consist of between 2 and 50 amino acids, whereas proteins are made up of 50 or more amino acids. Let’s make it more specifically for some examples, Melanotan 2, abbreviation as MT2. From it’s full chemical sequence: Ac-Ser-Tyr-Ser-Nle-Glu-His-D-Phe-Arg-Trp-Gly-Lys-Pro-Val-NH2, we can know that MT2 has 13 amino acids, so MT2 is a peptide. We also call it a peptide hormone. Another peptide BPC-157, chemical formula: Gly-Glu-Pro-Pro-Pro-Gly-Lys-Pro-Ala-Asp-Asp-Ala-Gly-Leu-Val, with 15 amino acids, so apparently BPC-157 is also peptide.

Peptide Information

What Are Peptides? Peptides (from Greek language πεπτός, peptós "digested"; derived from πέσσειν, péssein "to digest") are short chains of amino acid monomers linked by peptide (amide) bonds. The covalent…
