8/31/2009 Review questions for Bio 1A Lectures 1-3 1. Phosphodiesterases are enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of phosphodiester bonds. What types of macromolecules could be substrates for phosphodiesterase? 2. There is no shortcut for learning condensation/hydrolysis reactions of carbohydrates. The best way to prep for the exam: Draw a condensation reaction of two a-glucose molecules. Now draw the hydrolysis reaction. Repeat this process ~10 times. 3. What is the net charge of a zwitterion? Let’s say there’s a zwitterion that makes a really good seasoning for salad dressing. Would it dissolve better in the oil or the water part of the dressing? 4.

Note that there’s a one-letter code that corresponds to each of the twenty amino acids. Draw a peptide with five subunits that would allow you to communicate this word as a secret message.
