10. What type of molecule is the molecule to the right? MONO-UNSATURATED FATTY
ACID. Molecules made of these molecules joined to glycerol would be at what state at
room temperature? LIQUID
The molecule at left is what type of molecule? PURINE
NUCLEOTIDE Label the parts of this molecules:
5-CARBON SUGAR (DEOXYRIBOSE)
Nucleotides are connected together by bonds that form between the PHOSPHATE of one nucleotide and the SUGAR of
13. Three molecules composed of nucleotides are DNA, RNA, ATP
14. PHOSPHOLIPIDS are lipids containing phosphorous that are particularly important in the
15. EMULSIFICATION is the act of dispersing one liquid in another, as fat in water.
16. Inorganic compounds are compound that do not contain CARBON atoms.
17. List 5 function of proteins, along with an example of each:
MALTASE, TRYPSIN, PEPSIN
IMMUNE SYSTEM COMPONENTS
MUSCLE (e.g. ACTIN & MYOSIN FIBRES)
PEPTIDE HORMONES (e.g. INSULIN)
18. There are a total of EIGHT amino acids that the human body can't manufacture, and so must be
obtained from food. These are called ESSENTIAL amino acids.
19. Use the following words to describe the making of a protein (an expression may be used more tertiary structure, hydrophobic interactions, water,-COOH, polypeptide chain, Dehydration synthesis, -NH2, secondary structure, hydrogen bonding, covalent bonds, helix, primary structure, peptide bonds DEHYDRATION SYNTHESIS between amino acids joins -NH2 groups to -COOH groups (in the
process WATER molecules are removed) to form a POLYPEPTIDE CHAIN. The bonds so
formed are called PEPTIDE BONDS. The sequence of amino acids is called the PRIMARY
STRUCTURE. The SECONDARY STRUCTURE is often in the form of an alpha helix, which is
due to HYDROGEN BONDING between amino acids in the chain. The TERTIARY STRUCTURE
is the three dimensional shape of the protein as it folds back on itself. This structure is held
together by HYDROGEN BONDING, HYDROPHOBIC INTERACTIONS, and COVALENT
BONDS between R groups. The shape of the protein is determined by its PRIMARY
STRUCTURE. The function of the protein is determined by its PRIMARY STRUCTURE.
20. A protein that has lost its precise three dimensional shape has become DENATURED. Three
things that can cause a protein to become denatured are HEATING, PH CHANGES,
METABOLIC POISONS (LIKE HEAVY METALS E.G. LEAD, MERCURY, CADMIUM)
21. Two main functions of carbohydrates in living systems are in SHORT-term energy sources, and
structural components of cell WALLS in plants.
22. STARCH has few side branches of glucose chains, and is the storage form of glucose in plants.
Since it contains many glucose molecules joined together, it is called a POLYSACCHARIDE.
23. GLYCOGEN has many side branches of glucose chains, and is the storage form of glucose in
ANIMALS. The LIVER is the main organ that produces, breaks down, and stores this
24. "Roughage" or "Fibre" in our diet is actually due to the presence of CELLULOSE, another polymer
of glucose found only in PLANTS.
25. A pentose sugar contains FIVE carbons, while a hexose sugar contains SIX. An example of a
pentose monosaccharide is RIBOSE OR FRUCTOSE. An example of a hexose is GLUCOSE.
26. Table sugar is a DISACCHARIDE made of one molecule of glucose and one molecule of the
27. Lipids are organic compounds that are INSOLUBLE in water. In the body, they serve as LONG-
term energy storage molecules. Lipids include fats, OILS, and WAXES.
28. The 3 most important classes of lipids are neutral fats, PHOSPHOLIPIDS, and STEROIDS.
29. Oil, fat, butter are all composed of lipid molecules called TRIGLYCERIDES (or NEUTRAL FATS).
Neutral fats are composed of two types of molecules: GLYCEROL and FATTY ACIDS.
30. Most fatty acids contain about 16 TO 18 carbon atoms in a long chain. Saturated fatty acids have
no DOUBLE bonds between carbon atoms, and tend to be solid at room temperature.
Unsaturated fatty acids are most often found in vegetable oils, and account for the fact that they
are liquid at room temperature.
31. Butter contains a large proportion of UNSATURATED fatty acids. Excess intake of this type of
fatty acid is known to cause HEART attacks and strokes.
32. Soap is a MOLECULE formed when a FATTY ACID is reacted with an inorganic base such as
NaOH. Soap allows oils to be mixed with water by EMULSIFYING the oils.
33. A phospholipid is a lipid made of glycerol, 2 fatty acids, and a phosphate group. It is the primary
component of membranes. The phosphate "head" is HYDROPHILIC, the tail is HYDROPHOBIC.
34. STEROIDS are small lipids containing rings that are all derived from cholesterol. An important
function of these compounds are sex HORMONES like progesterone.
35. Place the following terms in order of increasing size: DNA, nucleus, RNA, cell, nucleotide, gene, chromosome: NUCLEOTIDE, RNA, DNA, GENE, CHROMOSOME, NUCLEUS, CELL
36. DNA stores genetic information. RNA carries a copy of that information (e.g. a message to make
insulin) to the ribosomes where PROTEINS are assembled.
37. What type of molecule is the molecule drawn below? PHOSPHOLIPID
38. What is the best one-word description for the molecule to the right? DIPEPTIDE
Circle the bond that was created when this molecule was formed. What is the name of this type of
39. a) To what class of molecules does the molecule below belong? STEROID
b) Why are these molecules grouped with lipids? BECAUSE
