Presentation Transcript

  1. Dr. Arrel Toews (say Tavz, like “waves”) 420 ME Jones Building atoews@med.unc.edu 843-8727 Get UP To Speed (GUTS) Session on Lipids A primer on lipid structure, nomenclature, and function See also the GUTS session on Lipids notes (.doc) - self-assessment exam - additional lipid information

  2. Lipids Definition:biomolecules that are overall hydrophobic - very non-polar - insoluble in water/aqueous solutions (cellular environment) - soluble in “organic” (non-polar) solvents (CHCl3-MeOH) - operational rather than structural definition (water-fearing) - contrast this with definitions for: proteins nucleic acids carbohydrates

  3. Lipid Functions -energy source (dietary triglycerides)-energy stores (adipose tissue triglycerides) - triglycerides are completely hydrophobic highly reduced (energy-rich) compact, efficient energy storage -membranes – amphipathic lipids (both hydrophobic and hydrophilic portions) - phospholipids - sphingolipids - cholesterol -signaling molecules2nd messenger systems; eicosanoids; steroid hormones - fat-soluble vitamins: A (vision), D (bones/teeth), E (anti-oxidant; live forever), K (blood clotting) Fatty acids are basic building block of most lipids

  5. This is shorthand for a fatty acid with 18 carbons and 2 double bonds. The 6 indicates the double bond closest to the methyl end is 6 carbons from the  end. Structure and nomenclature of fatty acids Linoleic acid CH3(CH2)4CH=CHCH2CH=CH(CH2)7COOH Systematic: cis, cis 9,12-octadecadienoic acid Shorthand: 18:26 If more than one double bond, the configuration is always “methylene-interrupted” (-CH=CH-CH2-CH=CH-) with cisdouble bonds. Always 3C between C=C bonds So - the term18:26 completely defines the formula and structure of linoleic acid

  8. Physiological functions of lipids–a problem hydrophobicity (long chain length) and fluidity (liquid at body temperature) both vitalrequired biophysical properties - cell membranes - storage depots of energy (adipose tissue) But melting point increases with chain length So FA long enough to be hydrophobic are solids!(mp is above body temp) How does Mother Nature handle this??

  10. Physiological functions of lipids The fatty acid composition of membrane lipids and adipose tissue triglycerides - chain length - degree of unsaturationis carefully regulated to maintain the appropriate fluidity

  11. fatty acid fatty acid glycerol fatty acid Most of the fatty acid in the body is esterified – much of it as triglyceride (mostly in adipose tissue) – also lots in phospholipids (major components of membranes) Fatty acid composition is regulated to maintain correct fluidity (both TG and PL) - critical to biological function OllCH2OC OllCHOC Triglycerideenergy sourcestorage form OllCH2OC

  12. polar head long hydrophobic tail e.g.,choline+ Phospholipids – vital components of membranes • glycerol backbone (like TG)- 2 FA in ester linkages- phosphate + X (choline, ethanolamine, serine, inositol) • amphipathic(amphi = both) F A T T Y A C I D GLYCEROL F A T T Y A C I D Remember kinks in cis-double bonds of unsat’d FA P THE defining components of biological membranes - make lipid bilayers (2 molecules thick)
