29 Lipids Lipids are a diverse group of substances which include fats (solid at room temp.)oils (liquid at room temp.)steroids which include cholesterol and some of the sex hormoneswaxes which cover insect bodies and plant leaves.
30 Structure of LipidsThey are made up of the elements carbon hydrogen oxygen But not have the same ratios as carbohydrates. They are made up of two main types of molecules Fatty acids and Glycerol
31 Learning check Give examples and sources of: Examples Sources MonosaccharidesDisaccharidesPolysaccharidesGlucoseFructosefruitSucroseLactoseTable sugarMilkStarchCelluloseBread, Pasta,Cereals
32 Types of LipidTwo of the main types of lipids are Triglycerides Phospholipids
33 Triglyceride This is the smallest lipid It is made up of Fatty Acid 1Fatty Acid 2Fatty Acid 3GlycerolIt is made up of3 fatty acid moleculesand1 glycerol molecule
34 PhospholipidsIf one fatty acid of a lipid molecule is replaced by a phosphate group then a phospholipid is formedFatty Acid 1Fatty Acid 2GlycerolPhosphate
35 Sources of LipidsFat – in and on meatButter (80% fat)Cooking oils
36 Learning checkThe two main types of molecules that make up lipids are: Fatty acids and Glycerol The two main types of lipids are: Triglycerides Phospholipids
37 ProteinsProteins contain the elements Carbon Hydrogen Oxygen Nitrogen Some may also contain sulphur, phosphorous or iron Proteins are found in lean meat, fish, pulses, soya and eggs
38 Structure of ProteinsProteins are made up of long chains of amino acids There are 20 common and several rare amino acids found in proteins More amino acids are found in cells and tissues but are not in proteins Amino acids are joined together by peptide bonds This results in the formation of polypeptide chains
39 Learning checkProteins contain the elements Carbon Hydrogen Oxygen Nitrogen Sometimes they contain sulphur, phosphorous or iron Proteins are made up of long chains of amino acids
40 Vitamins Vitamins are essential organic catalysts of metabolism Needed in small amounts, cannot be produced in the bodyMust be supplied continuously and in sufficient quantitiesDiffer from each other chemically
41 VitaminsWe need Vitamins A, B, C, D, E and K in our diets to keep us healthy Vitamins can be water soluble or fat soluble Vitamins B and C are water soluble Vitamins A, D, E and K are fat soluble
42 Sources of Vitamins Green leafy vegetables, Eggs, Cheese, Carrots Lean Meat, Cereals, NutsCCitrus Fruits, Green vegetables, TurnipsDMilk and Milk products, SunlightEVegetable oils, fish, nutsKGreen leafy vegetables
43 Learning checkWhat is a vitamin? A vitamin is an essential organic catalyst of metabolism What vitamins dissolve in water? B & C What vitamins are fat-soluble? A, D, E and K
44 1.3.5 Energy Transfer Reactions Anabolic & CatabolicOrAnabolism & Catabolism
45 Need to know Definition of the terms: Anabolic Catabolic Give an example of each
46 Anabolic ReactionsThis is where energy is used to make large molecules (e.g. C6H12O6) from smaller ones (e.g. CO2 and H2O) using enzymese.g. Photosynthesis – glucose molecules are formed from carbon dioxide and water using enzymes and the energy from the sun.This is anabolism. Energy is absorbed.
47 An Anabolic ReactionEnergy being used to join two small molecules to make a larger moleculeENERGYSmall moleculeLarger molecule
48 Catabolic ReactionsThis is where energy is released when large molecules (e.g. C6H12O6) are broken down to form smaller ones (e.g. CO2 and H2O) using enzymese.g. Respiration – glucose molecules are broken down by enzymes to form carbon dioxide and water and energy is released.This is catabolism. Energy is released.
49 Learning check Explain Anabolism Energy absorbed. Small large moleculesGive an example of an anabolic reactionPhotosynthesisExplain CatabolismEnergy released. Large small moleculesGive an example of a catabolic reactionRespiration
51 Is catabolism the opposite of anabolism? – NO In the examples just given the chemical processes (pathways*) involved in each of them are different, therefore catabolism is not the opposite of anabolism.* e.g. if you travel from A to B – you followed a certain pathway. On the return journey you may come home through C – you followed a different pathway.
52 Energy Transfer Reactions Respiration – Catabolic reactionC6H12O6 + Oxygen Energy + CO2 + H2O releasePhotosynthesis – Anabolic reactionCO2 + H2O + Energy C6H12O6 + Oxygen absorbed
53 Learning check Is anabolism the opposite of catabolism ? No Why? Different chemical pathways involved in both.
