Slide 1

Organic Macromolecules Large atoms that perform numerous imperative natural capacities Carbohydrates Lipids Proteins Nucleic Acids Many are polymers Large particle that is made of rehashing units of indistinguishable or comparable subunits Each subunit=monomer

Slide 2

Biological Polymerization Accomplished through covalent holding Often happens by means of lack of hydration responses which result in the arrival of a water atom/security framed Process can be turned around by hydrolysis which breaks securities by the expansion of water

Slide 4

Carbohydrates Comprises sugars and polymers of sugars Used for assortment of capacities Energy-basic sugars Storage of vitality starches Structural segments cellulose and chitin

Slide 5

Monosaccharides Simple sugars=monomers Usually have compound sythesis of C x H 2x O x Can exist as chains or rings (typically rings in arrangement) Monosaccharides join to shape disaccharides

Slide 6

Sugar Classification Sugars might be ordered by: Number of carbons in chain Location of carbonyl gathering Position of side gatherings from uneven carbon

Slide 7

Slide 8

Disaccharide Formation Disaccharides are framed by the lack of hydration response between two monosaccharides Bond between monosaccharides is known as the glycosidic Linkage may happen between various distinctive carbons

Slide 10

Storage Carbohydrates Polysaccharides=many monomers in one polymer Glucose is most regular monomer utilized Starches =plants use for vitality stockpiling Amylose is unbranched chain of glucose monomers Glycogen=animals utilize glycogen as medium-term vitality stockpiling Glycogen is profoundly spread polymer of glucose monomers Cells contain enough glycogen for roughly one day's movement

Slide 11

Structural Carbohydrates Cellulose Most bounteous natural compound on earth Plants utilize cellulose as auxiliary part of cell dividers Most creatures can't process Certain microorganisms can corrupt cellulose Cows and termites have harmonious relationship w/microbes Fiber in your eating regimen normally implies cellulose Not processed so goes about as a mechanical purifying instrument as it goes through the digestion tracts Comprises polymerized units of glucose

Slide 12

Starch versus Cellulose Both utilize 1-4 glycosidic linkage of glucose Starch utilizes an arrangement of glucose Results in helical particle Cellulose utilizes B setup of glucose Forms direct strands that associate to shape fiber packs

Slide 13

Structural Carbohydrates 2 Chitin Comprises polymer of N-acetylglucosamine (NAG) Similar to glucose yet has a nitrogen-containing side chain Major segment of creepy crawly and shellfish exoskeleton Major segment of parasitic cell dividers Can be adaptable or made unbending by connecting with calcium Cross-interfaces the structure

Slide 14

Carbohydrate Summary Can be utilized for vitality, stockpiling and basic uses Designated by length of carbon chain, area of carbonyl gathering, and position of side gatherings around topsy-turvy carbons Glucose and adjusted glucose is utilized as a part of every one of the three noteworthy elements of sugars
