About this Document

These notes finish up talking about the last macromolecule: Lipids. It also reviews the various bonds that form for each macromolecule and contains a summary of the four macromolecules.

9.16.16 Biology1107KNotes[Week5] Lecture Notes Review  When you join two carbohydrates together,youtake out water andform a glycosidic bond with oxygen  When you join two amino acids takes out water andforms a peptide bond  When you join two nucleotides together,youtake out water andform a phosphodiester bond. Lipids  Partially hydrophobic; hydrocarbons  No monomers  Waxes  Steroids—relatedto cholesterol  Fats are constructedfrom two types of smaller molecules:glyceroland three fatty acids o Glycerol is a three-carbon alcoholwith ahydroxylgroupattachedto each carbon o A fatty acid consists of acarboxylgroupattachedto a longcarbon skeleton  The glyceroland3fatty acids are joinedtogether in a3 ester bonds  Number of molecules -1=amount of water takenout  So if we have (1 glycerol+ 3 fatty acids) – 1O= 3 H o The major function of fats is energy storage.  Humans andother mammals store their fat in adipose cells.  Fats give you more energy than sugars do.(sugars have more oxygen storedin the bonds than fats)  Phospholipids o Two fatty acids and a phosphate groupare attachedto glycerol o Two fatty acid tails are hydrophobic,but the phosphate groupand its attachments form ahydrophilic head.  Saturatedvs.Unsaturated o Palmitoleic acid (fatty acid) o Saturated—the fatty acids with hydrocarbons chains all filled up with hydrogens (just one double bond).The tight organization of the molecules makes it solidat room temperature.  On the subway everyone is packedreally tightly.  CH —CH 2—CH —CH 2… o Unsaturated—just needs one double boundbetween carbons to make it unsaturated.Kinks/bends in the carbon chain make it so that its liquid at room temperature.  On the same subway,if you want more space you bendyour elbows.This puts akink in the organization.  CH —CH 2—CH =CH —CH 2… o A diet rich in saturatedfats may contribute to cardiovascular disease through plaque deposits o Hydrogenationis the process of convertingunsaturatedfats to saturatedfats by adding hydrogen. Hydrogenatingvegetable oils also creates unsaturatedfats with trans double bonds.  These trans fats may contribute morethan saturatedfats to cardiovascular disease.  See Week 3,pg. 2 Notes for info on Trans fats Van der Waals Interactions:  Weak interaction of electron clouds in non-polar regions of molecules  Involves akindof “synchrony” in the movement of electrons around two or more atoms  The gecko has many microscopic hairs on its feet,or setae (singular seta), that increase the Van der Waals forces between its feet and the surface. 2 9.16.16 Large BiologicalMolecules Components Examples Functions Carbohydratesserveas Monosaccharides:glucose,fructose Fuel;carbon sources thatcan be convertedto fueland buildingmaterial. other molecules or combinedinto polymers Disaccharides:lactose,sucrose Polysaccharides:  Strengthens plantcellwalls  Cellulose (plants)  Stores glucose for energy  Starch (plants)  Stores glucose for energy Monosaccharide monomer  Glycogen (animals) Strengthens exoskeletons andfungal cellwalls  Chitin (animals and fungi) Lipids are a diverse group Triacylglycerols (fats or oils):glycerol+ 3 fatty aciImportantenergy source of hydrophobic molecules and are not macromolecules.
