differentiate between peptide hormones from protein hormones


Dear student, peptide hormones are the ones whose molecules are peptides while protein molecules are those whose molecules are proteins. Protein hormones have longer amino acid chains than peptide hormone. Nevertheless these both are almost same. Thanks and regards.

Peptide and Protein Hormones
Peptide hormones consist of short chains of amino acids, whereas protein hormones are longer polypeptides. Both types are synthesized like other body proteins: DNA is transcribed into mRNA, which is translated into an amino acid chain.
