    In protein molecules, α-amino acids are linked in a linear sequence. The α-carboxylic group of one amino acid is linked to the α-amino group of the next amino acid, through a special type of amide bond( -CONH2-). this bond is known as peptide bond and it formed by a condensation reaction.

    peptide bond is the covalent bond between the carboxyl group on one amino acid and the amino group on another, formed by a dehydration reaction (removal of water molecule). I attached a drawing (good enough kind), but pardon for my penmanship.
