Joseph Leonard – 11/15/07 – p62 #1-15 1. Explain the relationship between amino acids, peptide bonds, and proteins. Amino acids are the monomer building blocks of proteins. When two are joined together in a peptide bond, they form proteins. 2. How are the structures of monosaccharides, disaccharides, and polysaccharides related to each other? Two monosaccharides form together to form a disaccharide. A polysaccharide is a complex molecule composed of three or more monosaccharides. 3. Explain the relationship between a polypeptide and a peptide bond. A polypeptide is amino acids that bond to each other one at a time to form a long chain held together by peptide bonds. 4. What is the difference between a hydrophilic and hydrophobic substance? A hydrophilic substance is attracted to water, while a hydrophobic substance tends not to interact with water molecules. 5. Why is the structure of the cell membrane referred to as a bilayer?
