Peptide (from Greek πεπτος, "digestible" or "edible"), is a molecule consisting of a chain of amino acids (also called monopeptides) that are joined by short-chain peptide bonds. A peptide bond is a special case of the amide bond; a carbon atom (with double bond to an oxygen atom) binds to a nitrogen atom (which belongs to another peptide and which in turn binds to a hydrogen). The two carbon and nitrogen atoms are in turn attached to their alpha carbon.

Peptides differ from proteins only in that they are smaller; the boundary between peptide and protein is usually drawn at 50 amino acids so that insulin with its 51 amino acids is counted as the smallest protein. A molecule with only two amino acids is called dipeptide, one with three amino acids is called tripeptide. Slightly larger peptides are sometimes called oligopeptides, and even larger polypeptides. Exactly where the boundary between oligopeptide and polypeptide goes is difficult to say, but often peptides of between about 30 and 50 amino acids are counted as polypeptides.

Peptides are found in the body, for example in the ribosomes, but there are also a number of peptide hormones such as oxytocin and vasopressin. Peptides that function in the nervous system are called neuropeptides. What distinguishes peptides from "classical" transmitter substances (norepinephrine, dopamine and serotonin) is that peptides can only be synthesized by the ribosomes present in the soma of the nerve cell.
