Lactose contains a reducing end at its glucose moiety, whereas the galactose moiety forms a full acetal with the C4-OH group of glucose. Saccharose does not have a reducing end because of full acetal formation between the aldehyde carbon of glucose C1 and the keto carbon of fructose C2. Main articles: Lipid , Glycerol , and Fatty acid Structures of some common lipids. At the top are cholesterol and oleic acid.

At the bottom is the common phospholipid , phosphatidylcholine. Some lipids are linear, open chain aliphatic molecules, while others have ring structures.

Some are aromatic with a cyclic [ring] and planar [flat] structure while others are not. Some are flexible, while others are rigid. In triglycerides , the main group of bulk lipids, there is one molecule of glycerol and three fatty acids.

Fatty acids are considered the monomer in that case, and may be saturated no double bonds in the carbon chain or unsaturated one or more double bonds in the carbon chain.

In general, the bulk of their structure is nonpolar or hydrophobic "water-fearing" , meaning that it does not interact well with polar solvents like water.

Another part of their structure is polar or hydrophilic "water-loving" and will tend to associate with polar solvents like water. This makes them amphiphilic molecules having both hydrophobic and hydrophilic portions. In the case of cholesterol , the polar group is a mere —OH hydroxyl or alcohol. In the case of phospholipids, the polar groups are considerably larger and more polar, as described below.

Most oils and milk products that we use for cooking and eating like butter , cheese , ghee etc. Vegetable oils are rich in various polyunsaturated fatty acids PUFA. Lipid-containing foods undergo digestion within the body and are broken into fatty acids and glycerol, which are the final degradation products of fats and lipids.

Lipids, especially phospholipids , are also used in various pharmaceutical products , either as co-solubilisers e. Proteins are very large molecules—macro-biopolymers—made from monomers called amino acids.

The side chain "R" is different for each amino acid of which there are 20 standard ones. It is this "R" group that made each amino acid different, and the properties of the side-chains greatly influence the overall three-dimensional conformation of a protein. Some amino acids have functions by themselves or in a modified form; for instance, glutamate functions as an important neurotransmitter. Amino acids can be joined via a peptide bond.

In this dehydration synthesis, a water molecule is removed and the peptide bond connects the nitrogen of one amino acid's amino group to the carbon of the other's carboxylic acid group.

Frequently bought together

The resulting molecule is called a dipeptide , and short stretches of amino acids usually, fewer than thirty are called peptides or polypeptides. Longer stretches merit the title proteins.

As an example, the important blood serum protein albumin contains amino acid residues. A schematic of hemoglobin. The red and blue ribbons represent the protein globin ; the green structures are the heme groups. For instance, movements of the proteins actin and myosin ultimately are responsible for the contraction of skeletal muscle.

One property many proteins have is that they specifically bind to a certain molecule or class of molecules—they may be extremely selective in what they bind. There are two great strengths to the Karp text. There is, for example, a section on human aging discussing free radicals and flies and worms with extended life spans. These are very readable accounts that should inspire all students with an interest in the studies they have chosen, and as with the whole book the student will be brought pretty much up to date with references up to the year The CD that comes with the textbook is very useful with animations that help a lot when you need for example to get your mind around how muscles contract, how mRNA is spliced, or how telomeres are extended.

The muscle animation has a series of opportunities to view the muscle structure at different magnifications and to introduce yourself to all the molecular players one at a time with each click of the mouse. There are multiple choice questions with four choices.

You then press a key for the answer, which is hopefully the definition you came up with.


There are 20 multiple choice questions and 10 short answer questions per chapter, and having them on CD makes them fun to do. This is also true for the PowerPoint slides. You can download As an instructor you can register, which seems like it will give greater access to teaching materials. It may lack some of the depth of Alberts et al.

Volume 30 , Issue 4. Such inhibition is usually reversible by increasing substrate concentration, which would tend to displace the inhibitor from the active site. An increase in substrate concentration does not reverse penicillin's effect because penicillin forges a covalent bond between itself and the enzyme active site, thus occupying the active site permanently and irreversibly inactivating the enzyme.

Bacteria may also exchange genes by the process of transduction in which a virus carries bacterial DNA from one bacterium to another. DNA may also be passed by transformation in which a bacterium can pick up naked DNA from its surrounding medium.

However, some have developed resistance without acquiring this gene.

Cell Biology (7th ed.)

How do these bacteria escape the fatal effects of penicillin? Others are resistant because they are able to selectively export the antibiotic once it has entered the cell.

Still others are resistant because they possess modified transpeptidases that fail to bind the antibiotic as a result of mutations in the gene that encodes the enzyme. This strategy greatly reduces the likelihood that a variant will emerge that is resistant to all of the drugs. Second, drugs have been designed that interact with the most highly conserved portions of each targeted enzyme, those portions within which mutations are most likely to produce a defective enzyme.

One of these antibiotics acts specifically on bacterial ribosomes. What is it? Another new group of antibiotics is the cyclic lipopeptides. What is a representative of this group and how does this group of antibiotics work? A representative cyclic lipopeptide is daptomycin brand name Cubicin.

They disrupt bacterial membrane function. How does it render them immune to the effects of penicillin? Thus, penicillinase breaks the ring and renders penicillin harmless to the bacterium. Alternatively, it is tested for its ability to bind and inhibit a particular target protein that has been purified from bacterial cells.

Lipid-containing foods undergo digestion within the body and are broken into fatty acids and glycerol, which are the final degradation products of fats and lipids.

While they can synthesize arginine and histidine , they cannot produce it in sufficient amounts for young, growing animals, and so these are often considered essential amino acids.

Vegetable oils are rich in various polyunsaturated fatty acids PUFA. One of these antibiotics acts specifically on bacterial ribosomes. When presented with substrate K in amounts significantly larger than M, basinase converts K to L which leads eventually to the production of the end product R. DNA may also be passed by transformation in which a bacterium can pick up naked DNA from its surrounding medium.

In the presence of large amounts of substrate M and lower amounts of substrate K, the second pathway is activated and culminates in the production of that pathway's end product Y.
