ISB 202 Exam 2 Study Questions 1. Which macromolecules are the largest and most complex in living organisms? Proteins!! 2. What are some roles of proteins in organisms? Speed up reactions with enzymes and hormones turns things on and off -; transport molecules a) through membranes; structural - mechanical support; contractile allows muscles to stretch and relax; protective - antibodies fight diseases; Storage - stored food in seed embryos and eggs; Toxins - some kill bacteria 3.

R group 18. What are the four major levels of protein structure? Four levels of complexion: Primary - the order of sequence of two or more amino acids joined together - Dipeptide has 2 amino acids in the protein - Secondary structure - Shape of the molecule changes due to covalent bonding between H and O atoms - may be coiled (spiral staircase) or flat. the H and O
