BIO-02 LECTURE #4 – TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 2016 Topics: 1) Chemistry 2) Types of bonds 3) Common atoms in cells 4) Shape & charge 5) Molecules 1. Chemistry:  60% water molecules  99% contains 4 elements  Hydrogen, Carbon, Oxygen, and Nitrogen  1% contains 7 elements  Na, Mg, K, Ca, P, S, and Cl  NaCl tends to break apart because the water turns it into ions 2. Types of bonds:  Ionic bond  the gain or loss of electrons  Covalent bonds  sharing of electrons  Very stable and the strongest bond  Single bond, Double bonds, and Triple bonds  Nonpolar (equal sharing): Example, Hydrogen-Oxygen & Carbon-Oxygen  Polar bond (unequally sharing): Example, Oxygen-Oxygen  Hydrogen bond  Must involve Hydrogen & another molecule  water is held together by hydrogen bond  Van der Waals  An attraction from another atom’s nucleus  The right distance in order to reach Van der Waals  Hydrophobic interaction  When fat hates water 3. Common atoms in cells:  Carbon, Hydrogen, Nitrogen, Oxygen, Sulfur, and Phosphorus  They’re all light elements with small diameters  Very stable bonds between them 4. Shape & charge:  Shape  Single bond= can rotate & the molecule can change shape  Double bond & triple bond= no rotation & the shape does not change  Charge  Polar bonds= uneven distribution of electrons creating an uneven charge distribution  Nonpolar bonds= equal pull by both of the atoms which have an equally charge distribution 5. Molecules:  Proteins  C, O, H, & N (S)  DNA & RNA  C, O, H, N, & P  Carbohydrates  C & H  Lipids  C, H, & O  Macromolecules: Proteins, DNA & RNA, & Carbohydrates  MonomersPolymers SugarsPolysaccharides Fatty Acids Fats, Lipids, & Membranes Amino AcidsProteins NucleotidesNucleic Acids LECTURE #5- THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 8 , 2016TH Topics: 1) Macromolecules in cells 2) Chapter 11: Membrane organization & Function 1. Macromolecules in cells:  The cell is composed of 70% H2O  A lot of proteins than RNA  RNA has many different types:  Messenger RNA  Ribosomal RNA  Transfer RNA  30 different types of RNA  Some act as defense mechanism  RNA is good at hunting viruses  A cell is organized chemistry  Condensation Removal of H2O & making a bigger macromolecule  Hydrolysis Adding H2O & making the macromolecule shorter  SubunitsMacromoleculesMacromolecule complex (Covalent bonds) (Noncovalent bond) 2. Chapter 11: Membrane Organization & Function:  Lipid bilayer = 2 layers of lipid (Hydrophobictail & Hydrophilichead)  50 atoms thick = 5nm  The layer prevents the entry and exit of molecules except when the conditions are controlled  Nutrients enter & waste exists  Gates allow certain molecules to enter  Receptors are able to detect the environment  It’s able to grow and shrink  It’s able to reseal itself by exclusion of water molecules or the formation of small vesicles  The lipid bilayer contains lipid molecules and protein molecules  The phosolipid head is linked to a phosphate group  The Golgi apparatus puts sugar on the hydrophilic head facing the extracellular space (outside)  Sugars protect the cell from the immune system  Same sugars are accepted but different sugars from the membrane are killed  Phosphatidylcholine most abundant, choline, phosphate, & the 2 long hydrocarbon chains  Chloroplast has a triple membrane  The nucleus & mitochondria have a double membrane  Proteins stabilize the membrane  It can move around lateral, flexion, & rotation…flip flop (rarely occurs)  Flippases occurs at the END (Phosolipid molecules can enter inside, but the inside phosolipid molecule can’t move outside)  Length of the hydrocarbon tail: 14 to 24 carbon atoms. The shorter the more fluid  Number of double bonds: the more saturated the more rigid  Saturated fats  Solid @ room temperature  Example: Butter  More dense  Unsaturated fats  Carbon double bonded  Liquid @ room temperature  Example: oil  Less dense  Animals have cholesterol in their lipid layer which makes it stiff

Why people love StudySoup

Jim McGreen Ohio University

"Knowing I can count on the Elite Notetaker in my class allows me to focus on what the professor is saying instead of just scribbling notes the whole time and falling behind."

Jennifer McGill UCSF Med School

"Selling my MCAT study guides and notes has been a great source of side revenue while I'm in school. Some months I'm making over $500! Plus, it makes me happy knowing that I'm helping future med students with their MCAT."

Bentley McCaw University of Florida

"I was shooting for a perfect 4.0 GPA this semester. Having StudySoup as a study aid was critical to helping me achieve my goal...and I nailed it!"


"Their 'Elite Notetakers' are making over $1,200/month in sales by creating high quality content that helps their classmates in a time of need."
