    Macromolecules, Day 3 Macromolecules, Day 3 Presentation Transcript

    • Launch
      • Write the monomer and polymer names for the four types of macromolecules
    • Macromolecules
      • Day 3
    • Carbohydrates
      • Made of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen
      • Used as main energy source for living things
      • Sometimes used as structural support
        • Plant walls and exoskeleton
    • Building carbohydrates
      • Carbohydrates= forms of sugars
      • Carbohydrates have the ability to store the most amount of energy per gram out of all the macromolecules
    • Structure of a Carbohydrate What do you notice about this structure?
    • Rings connect to form polysaccharides (polymer / macromolecule)
    • Lipids
      • Examples:Fats, waxes, oils
      • Made mostly of carbon and hydrogen
      • Used to store energy
      • Hydrophobic=scared of water
    • Building lipids
      • Made of 3 fatty acids attached to glycerol
      • Different types of fats
        • Saturated fats (ex. butter)
        • Unsaturated fats (ex. oil)
      Glycerol Fatty Acid Fatty Acid Fatty Acid
    • Proteins
      • Some help chemical reactions happen faster (enzymes)
      • Some help support cell structure
      • can also be used for energy
    • Proteins
      • Made from DNA and RNA
      • Order of monomers is extremely important
    • Building proteins
      • Made up of amino acids
      • Different order of amino acids = different proteins
      • Must be folded correctly to work
    • Nucleic Acids
      • Stores and passes along genetic material
      • 2 types: DNA and RNA
      • Made of strands of nucleotides , which have a base made of nitrogen
      • Order of monomers is extremely important
    • Building nucleic acids
      • The building blocks of nucleic acids are nucleotides
