Biochemistry complete the following questions ( full answers plz so i have a good understanding)
- Lipids, carbohydrates, and proteins all contain different amounts of energy per unit mass. Propose a procedure that would qualitatively show the energy differences among these macromolecules.
- Biological molecules and their chemical properties affect cellular processes and biochemical reactions. Arctic fish produce large amounts of antifreeze proteins during cold winter months. These proteins prevent water from forming large ice crystals and damaging soft tissue. Would you expect these proteins to be hydrophobic or hydrophilic? Explain your answer with reference to the role of the proteins.
- Hydrogen bonds and hydrophobic interactions play important roles in stabilizing and organizing biological macromolecules.
(a) Describe how hydrogen bonds and hydrophobic interactions affect the form and function of proteins.
(b) Infer how a disruption in the hydrogen bonds of nucleic acids would affect form and function.
(c) Infer how a disruption in hydrophobic interactions would affect form and function in lipids.
