Expert Answer:

A peptide bond is a chemical bond formed between two molecules when the carboxyl group of one molecule reacts with the amino group of the other molecule, releasing a molecule of water.
This is a dehydration synthesis reaction (also known as a condensation reaction), and usually occurs between amino acids.

The resulting CO-NH bond is called a peptide bond, and the resulting molecule is an amide.
