They are models created to use to represent the 3D structure of biomolecules. This can be represented
by the 3 types of models: space, spheres and rods, and skeletal.
The first are the most realistic, because in them the size and configur
Introduction to Biochemistry
The biochemistry most important objective is to study the structure, organization and functions of living
matter from the molecular point of view.
According to the issues, this can be divided into three blocks:
1. structural b
Lipids and fatty substances.
Definition and classification.
It is a heterogeneous set of substances, also called fat, with the common characteristic of being insoluble
in water. Biochemistry in jargon, however, is usually called lipid binding only an alco
Water is a weak electrolyte which dissociates into very low proportion follows. Only one each molecule is
dissociated, and this presents a great interest in biology.
. In pure water, i.e. pure water has a pH = 7.
Any substance that does v

Organic molecules living beings.
Macromolecules having a structural, functional and energy function.
Proteins: egg, meat.
Lipids: Oils and fats
Carbohydrates and sugars Mass
Nucleic Acid: DNA and RNA
Objective: To review and better understand the most important hematology laboratory techniques and
their benefits and their importance in detecting the disease

Nucleotides and nucleic acids
Nucleotides are a group of macromolecules that participate in the process of transmission and
expression of genetic information. There are 2 types of nucleic acids, AC. ribonucleic acid (RNA or RNA)
and AC. deoxyribonucleic (
Applications are mainly to study the optical properties of the nitrogenous bases (U, G, C, T, A) that are
highly aromatic structures with many double bonds and absorb very well in the visible range-UVA.
The absorbance is due mainly to trans
When the impulse reaches the end of an axon, you have to go to the next neuron, and does so through a
space called the synapse. At the synapse there is no physical contact. The space is called the synaptic
Links sugars - proteins
The two most important which often occur in proteins are:
N-acetyl glucosamine + protein chain: binding is established for the amino group "Asparagine" and is
called an N-glycosylation.
Another type of bond is a O-glycosidic with t
