  •   Draw the two possible dipeptides formed by condensation reaction between histidine and aspartic acid.

Expert Answer

Step 1

The two possible dipeptides formed by condensation reaction between histidine and aspartic acid are to be drawn.

Step 2

A peptide in general is a chain of amino acids linked by peptide bonds, where a peptide bond (-CO-NH-) is formed when two amino acids undergo condensation.

Thus, a dipeptide is a chain of two amino acids linked by peptide bond.
