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
