Propionamide (C2H5CONH2), a complex alkyl amide with twelve atoms, is the largest peptide-like molecule detected in space, according to a new study led by Dr. Juan Li from Shanghai Astronomical Observatory and the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

“Proteins, as the building blocks of living cells, are an essential component of living systems on Earth,” Dr. Li and his colleagues from China, Japan, France, Germany, the United States and Ukraine wrote in their paper.

“Proteins are polymers of amino acids joined together by the peptide bond, -NHCO-.”

“Due to the high molecular weight and extremely low gas-phase abundance, detection of proteins in the interstellar medium at the current stage of development of observation facilities looks like a formidable task.”

“Therefore, molecules with peptide-like bonds are of particular interest for our understanding of possible routes of protein formation in space.”
