Unformatted text preview: CELL BIOLOGY MACROMOLECULES 1. Work on developing diagrams that outline the key concepts related to each macromolecule. The diagrams should include as much of the following information as possible a. Structures (including key functional groups) and names of monomers or building blocks needed to synthesize the macromolecule b. Identify key bonds formed in the macromolecule c. Structure and function of the macromolecule (some may have more than one) d. An indication of whether each structure is hydrophobic, hydrophilic, or amphipathic e. Description of how each monomer and macromolecule could be identified in the laboratory 2. Use your understanding of the chemical characteristics of the four major types of macromolecules in living organisms to predict the outcome of the following experiments. Be sure to explain your reasoning. Experiment a: You stir 10 g of glucose and 10 ml of phospholipids in a 500-ml beaker that contains 200 ml of distilled water. Draw a diagram to show where and how the glucose and phospholipids would 200 ml of distilled water....
