Joining, linking and condensing of chain of amino acid results in formation of peptide linkage to produce primary, secondary, and tertiary structure of protein.

Explanation

Given:

An S-S bond between two cysteine amino acids on a protein is called a(n) ________. This bond stabilizes the tertiary structure of many proteins.

Disulfide bond is formed by two sulfur atoms that bond to each other. Two amino acid such as cysteine make a dipeptide by formation of disulfide linkage...
