My textbook says:
The amino group of an amino acid reacts with the carbonyl group of another amino acid at the end of a polypeptide chain. This condensation reaction forms a peptide bond. ... The precise sequence of amino acids in a polypeptide chain is the primary structure of the protein.
Later, it states that
The primary structure of a protein is established by covalent bonds ...
Is the primary structure of a protein governed by covalent bonds or peptide bonds? Are peptide bonds a type of covalent bond?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
