From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A dipeptide is a kind of organic compound (and therefore a kind of molecule).[1] A dipeptide is made up of only two amino acids: one amino acid on each side of a peptide bond. A dipeptide can be made from two different amino acids or by two amino acids of the same kind. A peptide bond will be in between the two amino acids.

Skeletal formula of Gly-Gly. The peptide bond is between the carbon that is double bonded to the oxygen, and the nitrogen.

Gly-Gly, or Glycylglycine is a dipeptide and also the simplest peptide. It is the dipeptide of Glycine.[2]
