What type of reaction causes the formation of sugar molecules larger than monosaccharides


Carbohydrates (also called saccharides) are molecular compounds made from just three elements: carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. Monosaccharides (e.g. glucose) and disaccharides (e.g. sucrose) are relatively small molecules. They are often called sugars. Other carbohydrate molecules are very large (polysaccharides such as starch and cellulose).

Carbohydrates are:

1. A source of energy for the body e.g. glucose and a store of energy, e.g. starch in plantsbuilding blocks for polysaccharides (giant carbohydrates), e.g. cellulose in plants and glycogen in the human body components of other molecules eg DNA, RNA, glycolipids, glycoproteins, ATPMonosaccharides

2. Monosaccharides are the simplest carbohydrates and are often called single sugars. They are the building blocks from which all bigger carbohydrates are made.

3. Monosaccharides have the general molecular formula (CH2O)n, where n can be 3, 5 or 6. They can be classified according to the number of carbon atoms in a molecule:

Cell regulation is conducted by special _____. carbohydrates lipids proteins nucleic acids

Answer: The correct answer for the fill in the blank is- Proteins.

Regulation of cell is conducted by special proteins. Proteins are complex molecules that play significant role in the body as they are required for functions, structure, as well as regulation of cell.

These special proteins act like enzymes which help in driving various metabolic reactions ( like digestion of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats).

Four major classes of organic compounds found in living organisms are proteins, carbohydrates, _____. A: vitamins, and minerals B: lipids, and nucleic acids C: sugars, and fats D: saccharides, and fatty acids

Answer: The correct answer for the fill in the blank is B) lipids, and nucleic acid.

There are four major organic compound, which are present in all living organisms. They are proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, and nucleic acids.

Proteins help in performing all essential functions in the body. Their building blocks are amino acids,which are linked by peptide bond.

Carbohydrates are the major source of energy in the living systems. They are made up of simple sugars like monosccharides and disaccharides.

Lipids consist of compounds like fats and oils. They form the striuctural components of the cell.

Nucleic acid include DNA ( deoxyribonucleic acid) and RNA ( ribonucleic acid). They store genetic information, which is passed from one generation to the next generation.

Thus, all these four organic compounds are essential for the survival of living organisms.

Which type of molecules does the body use to build and repair muscle tissue? lipids carbohydrates nucleic acids proteins


The correct answer would be proteins.

Proteins are considered as building blocks of the body as they are essential for the existence of life and is found in all living organisms in the environment.

Proteins are formed from amino acids and are included in various functions such as structural support, movement, cellular communication (receptors, hormones et cetera are mostly protein in nature), metabolism (generally enzymes are protein in nature) et cetera.

Similarly, muscle tissue is also made up of proteins, specially actin and myosin. Hence, in order to build and repair the muscle tissue body uses proteins.

Which is a basic unit of a sugar molecule? monosaccharide nucleotide amino acid fatty acid




-Monosaccharides are the simplest form or classification of carbohydrates. They are hence known as the most basic unit of carbohydrates. They are defined as any carbohydrates (or sugars) that cannot be hydrolysed any further to give simpler sugars.

Monosaccharides are the building blocks of disaccharides such as sucrose, and polysaccharides such as starch and cellulose.

Two monosaccharides can be linked together to form a "double" sugar or disaccharide. Many monosaccharides link together to form polysaccharides.

 The central dogma of molecular biology is centered upon the process of _________, in which the information from DNA is transcribed and translated, resulting in amino acids being joined into polypeptides.


Protein synthesis (translation)


Central dogma was proposed by Francis Crick to explain the unidirectional flow of genetic information in organisms. According to central dogma, gene expression follows a unidirectional path from DNA to RNA to protein. DNA sequence is transcribed into RNA and the RNA is translated into polypeptide sequence. A polypeptide is a polymer made of several amino acids joined together by peptide bond.
