5.111 Principles of Chemical Science Selected biology-related questions from problem sets for lectures 1-9 Review of fundamentals A. Lisinopril, sold under the brand names of Prinivil ® (Merck) or Zestril ® (AstraZeneca), is a small molecule drug used to treat high blood pressure and heart failure. It works by inhibiting the production of angiotensin, a signaling molecule found in the blood that causes vasoconstriction (narrowing of blood vessels) and increased blood pressure. Lisinopril has a mass percentage composition of 62.2% carbon, 7.7% hydrogen, and 10.4% nitrogen, with the balance being oxygen. What is the empirical formula of lisinopril? B. Through a process called cellular respiration (or oxidative metabolism), your body converts energy stored in the molecular bonds of sugars (such as glucose) into a form of energy that
