Peptides are low-weight protein formations as contrasted with heavier protein formations. Peptides often act as bridges that bind very important amino acids to each other. By way of example, carboxyl groups and NH2 groups around bound by these low-weight proteins, enabling them to be unified. When a peptide has less than 10 unique amino acid formations, the peptide is generically termed an oligopeptide.
