  • Transcript

    • 1. MacromoleculesPolymerizationCarbohydrates
    • 2. Macromolecules Macro: large Macromolecules are built by combining a number of smaller subunits Monomer: a single subunit Polymer: larger units made by covalent bonds between monomers
    • 3. Building Macromolecules A large variety of polymers can be built from a few monomers Cells can create many different macromolecules from a small number of starting materials by arranging them in different combinations
    • 4. Analogy: The Asian Kitchen“Fourteen simple basics, augmented by general pantry staples suchas sugar, salt, cornstarch, chicken broth, rice, oil, and black pepper,one can take most fresh ingredients and create a plethora of dishesfrom every province of China.”
    • 5. Analogy: Alphabets 26 letters of the alphabet makes over 125,000 words in the English language 4 nitrogen bases, A T C G, in DNA makes up our entire genome
    • 6. Metabolism The process by which macromolecules are built from monomers or disassembled is metabolism Metabolism: the sum of all chemical reactions that occur in a living organism Classified into 2 types:  Anabolism: reactions that build up molecules  Catabolism: reactions that breakdown molecules
    • 7. Anabolism Reactions Condensation (dehydration synthesis): monomers are covalently linked to make a polymer by removing water Text page 63, Fig. 5.2a.
    • 8. Catabolism Reactions Hydrolysis: covalent bonds connecting monomers in a polymer are disassembled by the addition of water
    • 9. MacromoleculesFour major classes are:1. Carbohydrates2. Lipids3. Proteins4. Nucleic acids
    • 10. What you need to know…1. Structure of the basic unit (e.g. monomers) that builds up the macromolecule2. How macromolecules react to form larger molecules3. How the larger molecules are broken down into basic units4. Functions of the molecules in living organisms
    • 11. Carbohydrate Carbo = carbon (C) Hydrate = water (H2O) Carbohydrates are multiples of the basic formula: CH2O Example: A carbohydrate with 6 carbons  CH2O x 6 = C6H12O6 = hexose (e.g. glucose)
    • 12. Monomer: Monosaccharides Mono = 1 Saccharide = sugar Ranges from 3 to 7 carbons in length Most names for sugars end in –ose  Hexose: glucose, fructose
    • 13. Function of Monosaccharide FUEL: short-term energy storage building materials cellular communication
    • 14. Monosaccharide ClassificationA. Number of carbons in the backbone Triose: 3C Pentose: 5C Hexose: 6CB. Location of the carbonyl group (-C=O) Aldose: carbonyl group at the end (aldehyde) Ketose: carbonyl group in the middle (ketone)
    • 15. Fig. 5.3
    • 16. Numbering System Where is carbon 1 in each molecule? Explain how the choice was made.
    • 17. Linear and Ring forms In aqueous solutions, hexose sugars form rings C=O group will react with the OH group on C5 to form a stable 5 or 6 sided ring structure Count the number of C, H, O in the ring structure. Are any atoms lost?
    • 18. Practice: Form Ring Structures Build the linear molecule. Rearrange the bonds to get the final ring form. Hint: it involves the functional group. In your notes, draw an arrow to show the 2 atoms in the linear structure that connects to form the ring. Number the carbons in both the linear and ring structures.
    • 19. Forming Ring Structures Fructose
    • 20. Ring forms of hexose sugars Question: How do you distinguish galactose, mannose and fructose from glucose? Refer to specific carbon numbers. Glucose Galactose Mannose Fructose
    • 21. Ring forms of hexose sugarsGlucose Galactose Mannose Fructose
    • 22. Ring forms of hexose sugarsGlucose Galactose Mannose Fructose Carbon 4 – Carbon 2 – OH is up OH is up
    • 23. Ring forms of hexose sugarsGlucose Galactose Mannose Fructose Carbon 4 – Carbon 2 – 5 sided ring OH is up OH is up
    • 24. Anomeric Carbon  The C of the C=O group is called an anomeric carbon -glucose  Depending if the OH group attaches from the top or bottom, different ring structure is formed. -glucose
    • 25. Anomeric Carbon The different orientation of the resulting OH group have different names Alpha (α) = OH group below ring Beta (β) = OH group above ring
    • 26. Saccharide Condensation Reaction Which functional group(s) participates in this reaction? What is the name of the new functional group formed (red box)?
    • 27. Linkage NamingTo name the linkage: Identify whether the anomeric carbon in the link is α or β Number the carbons and determine the 2 that are involved in the linkage Example: α-1,4 linkage
    • 28. Linkage: Anomeric Carbon α and β orientation of the anomeric carbon result in the formation of different types of bonds in polymers non-digestible digestible
    • 29. Dissaccharide Di = two Condensation reaction of 2 monosaccharides forming an ether bond known in carbohydrates as a glycosidic bond 3 dissaccharides that all involve glucose:  Maltose = glucose + glucose  Lactose = glucose + galactose  Sucrose = glucose + fructose
    • 30. Dissaccharide: Maltose Glucose + Glucose = Maltose + H2O Produced in malted products (e.g. beer) Linkage: α-1,4
    • 31. Dissaccharide: Lactose Glucose + Galactose = Lactose + H2O the major form of sugar in milk People with lactose intolerance lack the enzyme needed to break down lactose Linkage: β-1,4
    • 32. Dissaccharide: Sucrose Glucose + Fructose = Sucrose + H2O table sugar the major transport form of sugars in plants Linkage: α-1,2
    • 33. Reducing Sugars In a chemical reaction, when the anomeric carbon has an OH group, it is considered a reducing sugar. All monosaccharides are reducing sugarsIdentify the anomeric carbon in each molecule:
    • 34. Disaccharides: Reducing? Name the monosaccharides Name the disaccharide Name the linkage Is the disaccharide a reducing sugar?
    • 35. Disaccharides: Reducing? Name the monosaccharides Name the disaccharide Name the linkage Is the disaccharide a reducing sugar?
    • 36. Disaccharides: Reducing? Name the monosaccharides Name the disaccharide Name the linkage Is the disaccharide a reducing sugar?
    • 37. Polysaccharide Polysaccharides: polymers of monosaccharide (glucose) joined by glycosidic linkages. Two types of function:  Storage: Energy storage macromolecule that is hydrolyzed as needed.  Structural support: Building materials for the cell.
    • 38. Starch glucose monomers joined by α-1,4 linkages
    • 39. Starch Is made up of two forms that have a helical structure Amylose: unbranched form Amylopectin: branched form
    • 40. Starch  Main chain linkage (both): -1,4-glycosidic bond  Branch linkage (amylopectin): -1,6-glycosidic bond
    • 41. Starch Found in plants stored within chloroplasts a way to store surplus glucose Animals can eat plants containing starch and derive energy from it
    • 42. Glycogen Storage in liver and muscle cells of animals Glucose polymer with extensive branching Helical structure Fig. 5.6b

    • 45. Cellulose glucose monomers joined by β-1,4 linkages has no branching this linkage makes every other glucose molecule face upside down resulting in a straight chain (non-helical) 3D structure
    • 46. Cellulose Make up the plant cell wall Strength of cellulose from crosslinks:  hydrogen bonds between parallel strands of cellulose  H atoms of OH groups on one strand form H- bonds with OH groups on other strands.
    • 47. Cellulose Fig. 5.8
    • 48. Cellulose  Cellulose is found in cell walls of plants cells  Humans: Enzymes that digest starch cannot hydrolyze the β linkages in cellulose  Cows: have symbiotic relationships with microbes that have enzymes that can digest cellulose.
