Proteins The building blocks of proteins are amino – acids. Most structurally complex organic macromolecules. = side chain 20 amino acids in all 12 the body can synthesize termed non-essential amino acids. 8 that we obtain from our diet termed essential amino acids.
Primary/Tertiary structure of Proteins L–Alanine L–Cysteine
Secondary structures - -helix Clockwise 3.6 Amino acids per turn of the helix
Secondary Structures - Zwitter ion formation Some amino acids have extra reactive groups e.g. Carboxylic acid (COOH) – glutamic acid – aspartic acid – aspartic acid Amine (NH 2 ) – lysine H+ - Ionic bond
Secondary structures - -sheets Top view Side view Hydrogen bonding
Tertiary structures - sheets - helix Contains a combination of secondary structures & primary structures. Has a 3D structure. Structure determined by side – chains.

Carbohydrates Monosaccharides ‘ oses ’ “CH 2 O” Can be split into two groups : Aldoses & Ketoses. ‘ Ald ’ Aldehyde ‘ Ket ’ Ketone Aldoses e.g. Glucose Ketoses e.g. Fructose ‘ C 6 H 12 O 6 ’ Both Glucose & Fructose are Hex - ‘ oses’. Sugars can be 3 to 7 carbons long.
Carbohydrates In aqueous solution sugars form rings e.g. glucose
Carbohydrates Sugars polymerize via glycosidic 1–4 linkages Glycosidic linkage linkage Dehydration 2C 6 H 12 O 6 C 12 H 22 O 11 + H 2 O
Carbohydrates The resulting polysaccharide of 1–4 linakges of glucose is starch (storage polysaccharide in plants). Starch Amylose Unbranched starch Amylopectin Branched Starch 1–4 linkages 1–4 linkages & 1–6 linkages Branched 1–6 linkages occur every 30 linkages 6
Carbohydrates Sugars polymerize via glycosidic 1–4 linkages as well. 1–4 Glycosidiclinkage The resulting polysaccharide is cellulose (structural polysaccharide in plants).
Quiz C- Macromolecules 1.The most abundant (by mass) class of organic macromolecules in the biological world is : A Carbohydrates B Proteins C Nucleic Acids (DNA & RNA) D Lipids 2.D – ribose is a pentose. It can also be classified as an aldose. Write down a possible structure for D – ribose. structure for D – ribose. 3.The monosaccharide threose has 4 Os ! That is it has 4 oxygen atoms. What is the molar mass of threose ?
Quiz C- Macromolecules 4. When one draws the structure of D – glucose there are 2 ways to do it : A comprehension exercise either a Fischer projection or a Haworth projection. The Fischer projection shows glucose as a linear molecule and the numbering of the carbon atoms is shown on the structure. When it cyclizes it is the oxygen atom on carbon 5 which ends up in the ring This ring structure is called the Haworth projection and at equilibrium between the two forms the linear form is only 0.02% of the total glucose present.
Quiz C- Macromolecules The Haworth projection has the atoms on the RHS of the Fischer projection ‘down’ i.e. below the ring in the Haworth projection, and those on the LHS of the Fischer projection are up (above the ring). The –OH group on carbon 1 (the so called anomeric carbon) can either be up or down, ( ), or up, ( ). The form is about twice as common as the form. a)Draw the Haworth projection of the form of D – idose, given the Fischer projection below. below. b) Draw the Fischer projection of D – galactose given the Haworth projection below. - D - galactose
