1 Prentice Hall c2002Chapter 11 Principles of Biochemistry Fourth Edition Chapter 1: Introduction to Biochemistry Copyright © 2006 Pearson Prentice Hall, Inc. Horton Moran Scrimgeour Perry Rawn

2 Prentice Hall c2002Chapter 12 Chapter 1 Introduction to Biochemistry Adenovirus: Viruses consist of a nucleic acid molecule surrounded by a protein coat

3 Prentice Hall c2002Chapter 13 1.1 Biochemistry Is a Modern Science Urea ( 尿素 ) was synthesized by heating the inorganic compound ammonium cyanate (1828) This showed that compounds found exclusively in living organisms could be synthesized from common inorganic substances

4 Prentice Hall c2002Chapter 14 In 1897 Eduard Buchner showed that extracts of yeast cells could catalyze the fermentation of the sugar glucose to alcohol and carbon dioxide. Fischer described enzymes as rigid templates, or locks, and substrates as matching keys. The last half of the 20th century saw tremendous advances in the area of structural biology, especially the structure of proteins.

5 Prentice Hall c2002Chapter 15 Two notable breakthroughs in the history of biochemistry (1) Discovery of the role of enzymes as catalysts (2) Identification of nucleic acids as information molecules Flow of information: from nucleic acids to proteins DNARNAProtein

6 Prentice Hall c2002Chapter 16 In 1944 Oswald Avery et al. provided the first conclusive evidence that DNA is the genetic material. In 1953 Watson and Crick deduced the three-dimensional structure of DNA In 1958, Crick proposed the Central Dogmal of molecular biology.

7 Prentice Hall c2002Chapter 17 1.2 The Chemical Elements of Life Only six nonmetallic elements: oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, phosphorous, and sulfur account for >97% of the weight of most organisms These elements can form stable covalent bonds Water is a major component of cells Carbon is more abundant in living organisms than it is in the rest of the universe

8 Prentice Hall c2002Chapter 18 Fig 1.1 Periodic Table of the elements Important elements found in living cells are shown in color The six abundant elements are in red (CHNOPS) Five essential ions are in purple Trace elements are in dark blue (more common) and light blue (less common)

9 Prentice Hall c2002Chapter 19

10 Prentice Hall c2002Chapter 110 Functional groups in biochemistry Functional groups ( 官能基 )- specific parts of molecules involved in biochemical reactions Figure 1.2 shows the general formulas of: (a) Organic compounds (b) Functional groups (c) Linkages common in biochemistry (R represents an alkyl group (CH 3 CH 2 ) n -)

11 Prentice Hall c2002Chapter 111 Fig 1.2 (a) General formulas

12 Prentice Hall c2002Chapter 112 Fig 1.2(b) General Formulas

13 Prentice Hall c2002Chapter 113 Fig 1.2 (c) General Formulas

14 Prentice Hall c2002Chapter 114 1.3 Many Important Biomolecules are Polymers Biopolymers - macromolecules created by joining many smaller organic molecules (monomers) Condensation reactions ( 縮合反應 ) join monomers (H 2 O is removed in the process) Residue ( 殘基 )- each monomer in a chain

15 Prentice Hall c2002Chapter 115 Molecular mass Molecular weight is more correctly termed the relative molecular mass (M r ) - the molecular mass relative to 1/12 mass of a carbon atom ( 12 C) M r is a relative quantity and is dimensionless A typical protein may have an M r = 38,000 The absolute molecular mass of this protein = 38,000 daltons (1 dalton = 1 atomic mass unit)

16 Prentice Hall c2002Chapter 116 A. Proteins Proteins are composed of 20 common amino acids Each amino acid contains: (1) Carboxylate group (-COO - ) (2) Amino group (-NH 2 ) (3) Side chain (R) unique to each amino acid

17 Prentice Hall c2002Chapter 117 Fig 1.3 Structure of an amino acid and a dipeptide (a) Amino group (blue), carboxylate group (red) (b) Dipeptides are connected by peptide bonds

18 Prentice Hall c2002Chapter 118 Polypeptides Polypeptides - amino acids joined end to end Conformation ( 構形 )- the three dimensional shape of a protein which is determined by its sequence Active site - a cleft or groove in an enzyme that binds the substrates of a reaction

20 Prentice Hall c2002Chapter 120 B. Polysaccharides Carbohydrates, or saccharides, are composed primarily of C,H and O Polysaccharides are composed of saccharide monomers Most sugar structures can be represented as either linear (Fischer projection) or cyclic

23 Prentice Hall c2002Chapter 123 C. Nucleic Acids Polynucleotides - nucleic acid biopolymers are composed of nucleotide monomers Nucleotide monomers are composed of: (1) A five-carbon sugar (2) A heterocyclic nitrogenous base (3) Phosphate group(s)

24 Prentice Hall c2002Chapter 124 Fig 1.7 Deoxyribose Deoxyribose lacks a hydroxyl group at C-2. It is the sugar found in DNA.

25 Prentice Hall c2002Chapter 125 Nitrogenous bases Major Purines: Adenine (A) Guanine (G) Major Pyrimidines Cytosine (C) Thymine (T) Uracil (U)

29 Prentice Hall c2002Chapter 129 D. Lipids and Membranes Lipids are rich in carbon and hydrogen, but contain little oxygen Lipids are not soluble in water Fatty acids are the simplest lipids: long chain hydrocarbons, a carboxylate group at one end Fatty acids are often components of glycerophospholipids

33 Prentice Hall c2002Chapter 133 1.4 The Energetics of Life Photosynthetic organisms capture sunlight energy and use it to synthesize organic compounds Organic compounds provide energy for all organisms

34 Prentice Hall c2002Chapter 134 Energy Flow

35 Prentice Hall c2002Chapter 135 Metabolism and energy Metabolism - collection of reactions by which organic compounds are synthesized and degraded Bioenergetics - study of the changes in energy during metabolic reactions

36 Prentice Hall c2002Chapter 136 Free energy (  G) Free energy change (  G ) can predict the equilibrium concentrations and direction of a reaction where:  H = enthalpy change,  S = entropy change, T = temp When  G<0, the reaction will proceed spontaneously in the direction written When  G>0, the reaction requires energy to proceed  G =  H - T  S

37 Prentice Hall c2002Chapter 137 1.5 Biochemistry and Evolution Prokaryotes ( 原核生物 )- do not have a membrane-bounded nucleus Eukaryotes ( 真核生物 ) - possess nucleus and other complex internal structures Prokaryotes and eukaryotes appear to have evolved from a common ancestor over three billion years ago

38 Prentice Hall c2002Chapter 138 1.6 The Cell is the Basic Unit of Life Plasma membrane - surrounds aqueous environment of the cell Cytoplasm - all materials enclosed by the plasma membrane (except the nucleus) Cytosol - aqueous portion of the cytoplasm minus subcellular structures Bacteriophage or phage - viruses that infect prokaryotic cells

39 Prentice Hall c2002Chapter 139 1.7 Prokaryotic Cells: Structural Features Prokaryotes, or bacteria are usually single- celled organisms Prokaryotes lack a nucleus (their DNA is packed in a nucleoid region of the cytoplasm) Escherichia coli (E. coli) - one of the best studied of all living organisms E. coli cells are ~0.5  m diameter, 1.5  m long
