InformationAnswer
2 fatty acids + 1 glycerol + 1 phosphate group + other organic molecule/makes up cell membrane/hydrophilic head & hydrophobic tail
Multiple of [CH2O]
Molecules that include fats, waxes, steroids, phospholipids, & fat soluble vitamins (A, D, E, & K)/store energy/are hydrophobic or amphiphilic
Simple sugar alcohol compound with 3 hydroxyl (OH) groups
Carbohydrate molecule composed of long chains of monosaccharides such as starch, glycogen, cellulose, & chitin
Glucose + Glucose =
Used in cell membrane to maintain structural integrity and fluidity/precursor to steroid synthesis/crucial for signaling
Glucose + Fructose =
Macromolecule which serves as energy source/carbon source to build other molecules/encode information such as blood type/polymeric formula/(CH2O)n/always hydrophilic/ring or linear
Fat with only single bonds/packed tightly/high melting point/increase LDL levels
InformationAnswer
Molecules that seem to be repelled by water
3 fatty acids on a single glycerol backbone/main form of fat in human body/high levels may indicate increased chance of heart disease
Molecules that are both hydrophilic (water-loving) and lipophilic (fat loving)/phospholipids
2 monosaccharides joined by a glycosidic linkage/formed through condensation (dehydration) reaction
Derivative of fatty acids and glycerol
Most structurally sophisticated molecules known/includes most enzymes/constructed from amino acids/formed from 1 or more polypeptides
16-18 carbon chain with a carboxyl group at one end
Fat with at least one double bond/cis & trans varieties
Organic compound with carbon skeleton with 4 fused cycloalkane rings/lipids w/common ring structure
Long molecule with many similar building blocks linked with covalent bonds
