Distinguish between Glycosidic bond and Peptide bond. Give one similarity
Answer
Differences between glycosidc and peptide bonds are -:

Glycosidic bond

Peptide bond

(1) Join monosaccharide units.

(2) Forms by the reaction between aldehyde or ketone group and alcohol groups.

(3) Links two carbon atoms through an oxygen atom.

(4) Found in polysaccharides

 

(1) Join amino acid units.

(2) Forms by reaction between amino acids and carboxyl groups.

(3) Links carbon and nitrogen atoms. 

(4) Found in polypeptides.


Both glycosidic and peptide bonds involve the elimination of water molecule that is both are dehydration processes.
