Textbook Problem

Draw two Lewis structures for the dipeptide alanine- isoleucine that show the resonance structures of the amide linkage.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The Lewis structures of dipeptide alanine-isoleucine that shows the resonance structures of amides linkage has to be drawn

Concept introduction: A dipeptide is a chain which is made up of two amino acids. The dipeptide alanine-isoleucine contains two amino acids namely alanine and isoleucine. Both of them consist of an α-amino group, an α-carboxylic acid group and a side chain of hydrocarbons.

Explanation

The dipeptide alanine-isoleucine is formed by the condensation of two amino acids alanine and isoleucine. The condensation of the molecule of both these amino acids result in the loss of water molecule that leads to the formation of an amide linkage between the two amino acids.

The structure of alanine is:

The structure of isoleucine is:

The combination of these two amino acid results in the formation of dipeptide alanine-isoleucine by the loss of a water molecule...
