Building Blocks of Cells Chapter 2 T. Erickson, M.Ed.
Building Blocks of Cells Graphic Organizer NameCarbohydrat e ProteinNucleic AcidLipid Sub unitSugarAmino AcidsNucleotidesFat molecules FunctionProvides Energy Help the cell do their job, speed up chemical reaction Provides info to make proteins Stores energy, protects cell, keeps it stable internally Food SourceStarchesMeats, bean, and nuts Oils and butter
Building Blocks Proteins Amino Acids Almost all life processes of a cell involve proteins Speed up chemical reactions Help cells do their job They are chemical building blocks used to make cells Obtained through meats and beans Carbohydrate Sugar Simple (made of 1sugar) Complex (hundreds of sugars) Provides energy In the form of starches
Building Blocks Lipids/fats Fat molecules Cant mix with water Stores energy Protects cell Maintain stable internal environment Obtain through oils and butters, also greasy/high fat content foods Nucleic acid Nucleotides Blueprint of life Gives information to make proteins
Building Blocks of Cells Proteins Carbohydrates Nucleic Acids Lipids Sub Unit Function Food Source
