What are Proteins and carbohydrates and lipids and amino acids?
Proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, and amino acids are all organic compounds.
Monomer (base unit): amino acid
Monomers: Triglyceride head and Fatty Acid tail
I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for, but if you're talking about what is the difference in what these molecules are made of, proteins have amino acids (that's what they're made of), and carbohydrates and lipids do not. Proteins also have a primary, secondary, and tertiary structure that is not present in carbohydrates and lipids. Carbohydrates are made of sugar, and lipids are made of fatty acids and glycerol. DL
Proteins are made of long chains of molecules called amino acids. There are 21 different amino acids, resulting in almost endless possibilities. The sequence, the length, and the folding structure are all easily varied in proteins. By comparison, carbohydrates and lipids have few variations in structure or make-up.
No, amino acids are not carbohydrates. The building blocks of carbohydrates are sugars. The building blocks of polypeptides and thus proteins are amino acids. In other words, amino acids are the base-units, the monomers of polypeptides and thus proteins and have nothing to do with carbs/carbohydrates.
Carbohydrates, Lipids, Proteins, and Nucleic acids. Nucleic acids- kept together by glycosidic bonds and hydrogen bonds. Proteins- amino acids are the building block of protiens. Carbohydrates, made from monosaccharides, kept together by glycosidic bonds. Lipids, made from fat acids and glycerol, kept together by ester bonds.
When discussing pure carbohydrates, lipids, and protein: Amino acids contain Nitrogen and some contain sulphur which are not found in the strictest definition of carbohydrates and lipids. However carbohydrates and lipids can also combine with amino acids to form compounds like glycoproteins and ceramides.
The monomers of proteins are known as amino acids. ...A further explanation: Do not confuse amino acids with nucleic acids. Nucleic acids are DNA and RNA and are another one of the BIG 4 macromolecules that are needed to survive. The 4 are: Carbohydrates (monomer: monosaccaride) Proteins (monomer: amino acids) Lipids (monomer: fatty acids) Nucleic Acids (monomer: nucleotides)
Which enzymes are responsible for the final chemical breakdown of carbohydrates and amino acids and nucleic acids?
List the major subdivisions for each of the four types of compounds carbohydrates lipids proteins and nucleic acids within living organisms?
If your cells are short on amino acids what happens with the amino acids that come from the proteins we eat?
There are several biological compounds. They include proteins containing C.H.O. and N. Proteins are polymers of built on amino acids. Polymers are long links of organic compounds. The peptide bonds then link to amino acids, while the proteins create the enzymes. Nucleic acids, carbohydrates, and lipids are also biological compounds.
Well, there are technically four macromolecules essential to life...they are the lipids, nucleic acids, proteins, and carbohydrates. Amino acids correspond to the proteins, so yes, they are a basic unit of life. However, they are not the only basic unit, because there are others. See, life could not exist as we know it without amino acids, but couldn't with just amino acids as well.
Four (bio)macromolecules are: Carbohydrates (e.g. Glucose, cellulose and lactose), Lipids (e.g. Triglyceride, phospholipids) , Proteins (e.g. Insulin, keratin and all enzymes) and Nucleic Acids (e.g. DNA and RNA). Monomers for: 1) Carbohydrates = Monosacharides 2) Lipids = Glycerol and Fatty Acids 3) Proteins = Amino Acids 4) Nucleic Acid = Nucleotide
