I am using Biopython's Bio.PDB to get the protein sequences of PDB files.

This is the code that I have used in order to get three sequences.

I would like to find out if there is a way that I could loop this operation in order to get all three sequences printed out from the three different files at once?

Do you actual need peptide chain sequences or do you want the full protein sequence?

The easy way to loop your IDs is just to throw the whole thing inside a loop of names:

for ID in ["2reH", "3ebxH", ...]:
    structure = PDBParser().get_structure(ID, ID)
    PolypeptideBuilder = PPBuilder()
    for pp in PolypeptideBuilder.build_peptides(structure):
