Macromolecules Understand what the biological macromolecules are and how the polymeric molecules are formed and broken down. Be able to recognize the general structure of a carbohydrate and the various forms of monosaccharides that exists. Understand the roles of the polysaccharide in living systems. Understand what is meant by the term “branching” with regard to polysaccharide structure. Be able to recognize the general structure of an amino acid and understand the significance of the differing ability of amino acids to interact with water. Be able to describe the various levels of structure that proteins have and how this structure impacts the functionality of the protein. Understand the physical conditions that can impact the ability of proteins to properly take on their proper secondary, tertiary and quaternary structure. Be able to recognize the symbols commonly used to denote the various forms of secondary structure.
