Unformatted text preview: How are they connected together? 2. Note ATP (nucleotide) How does it differ from AMP, a nucleotide found in nucleic acids? C. Lipids 1. Structure: the fatty molecules 2. Phospholipids and membranes Most phospholipids are glycerophospholipids phosphate and fatty acids are connected to glycerol Biological membranes are lipid bilayers How do they prevent polar molecules (especially ions) from penetrating? Why is that crucial in respiration and photosynthetic bioenergetics? D. Carbohydrates 1. Sugars: glucose, fructose and glyceraldehyde are important in glycolysis (lecture 4) ribose and deoxyribose are part of nucleic acids Which nucleic acids have which? Which ribose is in ATP? 2. Polysaccharides: Important in biology but not in this course....
