Contains C, H, and O, generally with a 2:1 ratio of H to O (CH2O),provides much of the energy that the cell requires, include sugars and starches, can be in the form of monosaccharides, dissacharides or polysaccharides Carbohydrates
The most common form of this type of organic molecule is a triglyceride, which is a Glycerol with 3 fatty acid chains; supplies twice as much energy per gram as compared to carbohydrates. Lipids
Chain of Amino acids held together by peptide bonds. Functions include enzymes, transport proteins and receptors in the cell membrane, used to make antibodies and hormones. Translation produces ____________ Protein
Made of Nucleotides. Contains genes that code for proteins. DNA - double-stranded nucleic acid and RNA is single-stranded. Nucleic acids
What happens to a cell placed in a hypertonic solution? Water leaves the cell by osmosis and it shrinks.
Which type of transport moves molecules with the concentration gradient, does not require energy? Passive transport
Which type of transport moves molecules against the concentration gradient; requires energy Active transport
