Biological Macromolecules Vocabulary: Monomer Polymer Polymerization Dehydration Hydrolysis Carbohydrate Lipid Protein Nucleic Acid Monosaccharide Disaccharide Polysaccharide Aldose Ketose Pentose Hexose Starch Glycogen Glycosidic Cellulose Chitin Phospholipid Steroid Triglyceride Saturation Amphipathic Amino acid Polypeptide Peptide bond Denature Nucleic acid RNA DNA Phosphodiester Nucleotide Ribose Deoxyribose Purine Pyrimidine Key Concept 1: Cells use large macromolecules for many functions, which exhibit emergent properties based on the large-scale structure. Key Concept 2: Many biological macromolecules are polymers, long complex molecules made from chains of a few simple compounds (monomers). Key Concept 3: Many biological macromolecules are assembled by addition of monomers using dehydration synthesis, and disassembled by hydrolysis. Key Concept 4: There are only four general types of biological macromolecule:
