  1. Chapter 5 The Structure and Function of Macromolecules

  2. Overview: The Molecules of Life • Another level in the hierarchy of biological organization is reached when small organic molecules are joined together

  3. Figure 5.1 • Macromolecules • Are large molecules composed of smaller molecules • Are complex in their structures

  4. Concept 5.1: Most macromolecules are polymers, built from monomers • Three of the classes of life’s organic molecules are polymers • Carbohydrates • Proteins • Nucleic acids • The fourth class is not a polymer (the lipids)

  5. A polymer (poly=many; mer=part) • Is a long molecule consisting of many similar building blocks called monomers (mono=single)

  6. 1 HO H 3 2 H HO Unlinked monomer Short polymer Dehydration removes a watermolecule, forming a new bond H2O 1 2 3 4 HO H Longer polymer (a) Dehydration reaction in the synthesis of a polymer Figure 5.2A The Synthesis and Breakdown of Polymers • Monomers form larger molecules by condensation reactions called dehydration (polymerization)reactions • Requires energy • Requiresenzymes

  7. 1 3 HO 4 2 H Hydrolysis adds a watermolecule, breaking a bond H2O 1 2 H HO 3 H HO (b) Hydrolysis of a polymer Figure 5.2B • Polymers can disassemble by • Hydrolysis: (hydro= water; lysis= break) • Releases energy • Enzymesspeed up hydrolysis

  8. The Diversity of Polymers • Each class of polymer • Is formed from a specific set of monomers 1 3 2 H HO • Although organisms share the same limited number of monomer types, each organism is unique based on the arrangement of monomers into polymers • An immense variety of polymers can be built from a small set of monomers

  9. Concept 5.2: Carbohydrates serve as fuel and building material • Carbohydrates • Include both sugars and their polymers • Monomers of carbohydrates are simple sugars called Monosaccharides • Polymers are formed by condensation reaction • Are classified based on the number of simple sugars

  10. Sugars • Monosaccharides • Mono=single, sacchar=sugar • Are the simple sugars in which C, H and O are occur in the ratio of CH2O. • Are major nutrients for the cell • Can be produced by photosynthesis from CO2, H2O and sunlight. • Store energy in their chemical bonds which are harvested by cellular respiration. • Can be incorporated as monomers into disaccharides and polysaccharides

  11. Triose sugars(C3H6O3) Pentose sugars(C5H10O5) Hexose sugars(C6H12O6) H H H H O O O O C C C C H C OH H C OH H C OH H C OH H C OH H C OH HO C H HO C H Aldoses H H C OH H C OH HO C H H C OH H C OH H C OH Glyceraldehyde H C OH H C OH H Ribose H H Glucose Galactose H H H H C OH H C OH H C OH C O C O C O HO C H H C OH H C OH Ketoses H C OH H C OH H Dihydroxyacetone H C OH H C OH H C OH H Ribulose H Figure 5.3 Fructose • Examples of monosaccharides

Chemical equilibrium between the linear and ring structures greatly favors the formation of rings. To form the glucose ring, carbon 1 bonds to the oxygen attached to carbon 5. • Monosaccharides • May be linear • Can form rings

  13. Disaccharides • (Di=two; sacchar=sugar) • consists of two monosaccharides joined byglycosidic linkage • Maltose (malt sugar) = glucose + glucose • Lactose (milk sugar) = glucose + galactose • Sucrose (table sugar) = glucose + fructose

  14. (a) Dehydration reaction in the synthesis of maltose. The bonding of two glucose units forms maltose. The glycosidic link joins the number 1 carbon of one glucose to the number 4 carbon of the second glucose. Joining the glucose monomers in a different way would result in a different disaccharide.

  15. Polysaccharides • Polysaccharides • Macromolecules that are polymers of a few hundred or thousand of monosaccharides. • Formed by linking monomers in condensation reaction • Have two important biological functions: i. energy storage (starch and glycogen) ii. structural support (cellulose and chitin).

  16. Storage Polysaccharides • Starch • Is a polymer consisting entirely of glucose monomers

  17. Chloroplast Starch 1 m Amylose Amylopectin (a) Starch: a plant polysaccharide Figure 5.6 Starch • Is the major storage form of glucose in plants • Stored as granules within plant organelles called plastids • Amylosethe simplest form is an unbranched polymer. • Amylopectinis branched polymer • Most animals have digestive enzymes to hydrolyse starch

  18. Mitochondria Giycogen granules 0.5 m Glycogen Figure 5.6 (b) Glycogen: an animal polysaccharide Glycogen • Large glucose polymer that is more highly branched than amylopectin • Is the major storage form of glucose in animals • Stored in the muscles and liver of humans and other vertebrates

  19. Structural Polysaccharides • Cellulose • Linear unbranched polymer of glucose • Differ from starch in its glycosidic linkages • Cellulose and starch have different three-dimensional shapes and properties as a result of differences in glycosidic linkages.
