Chapter 5 BIO 1151 Chapter 5 All living things are made up of four macromolecules. Carbs, lipids, proteins, and necleic acids Small organis molecules, monomers, are joined together to form larger macromolecules, polymers Molecular structure and function are inseparable Macromolecules are polymers, built from monomers A polymer is a long molecule built from monomers Carbs, Proteins, and nuleic acids are all polymers. Lipids are not Dehydrations: the bondind of two monomers together through the loss of a water molecule Enzymers are protein polypeptides that speed up the dehydration process Each cell has thousands of different kinds of macromolecules Large numbers of polymers are built from a small set of polymers Carbs. Polysaccharides = Polymers Monosaccharides are single sugars. Glucose is the most common monosaccharide Monosaccs from carbon rings for their shape and have a carbonyl group attached to them Monosaccs serve as fuel and raw building blocks for molecules
