C. Carbohydrates 3. Monosaccharides a. Glucose and Fructose -most common monosaccharides -attract fruit dispersers and pollinators -provide ‘quick’ energy -major nutrient for cells, when broken down produce ATP -C-H bonds of carbs. have high potential energy; act as e- donors, transfer potential energy to ATP C 6 H 12 0 6 + O 2 CO 2 + H 2 O + ATP !!
