1 Unit 6 Lipids and Membranes Suggested reading for this section: Freeman, Chapter 6, pgs 95-118 Powerpoints for this unit: 1) Lipids 2) Membranes 3) Molecular Movement Through Membranes Learning Goals for this Unit Recognize structures of the four major classes of building-block molecules (monomers) that make up cellular macromolecules and membranes. a. Identify structures or molecular models of amino acids, nucleotides, sugars, and lipids . b. Identify the reactive chemical species (functional groups) that are part of each type of monomer (a) that allow them to be linked into polymers, and the type of chemical bond formed in the linkage. c. Name the macromolecules or structures that are obtained by linking or associating each of these monomers into a polymer or stable assembly. a) Diagram the structure of a phospholipid bilayer membrane with associated integral membrane proteins. b) Predict from the structure of a solute whether or not it will diffuse passively across a simple phospholipid bilayer membrane that contains no channel
