Macromolecule Function and Structure Sheet Follow the directions for drawing each of the following macromolecules Polymer = Carbohydrates Monomer = _____________________ Functions: In the following diagram: Color one glucose molecule green Draw a line separating the starch into two disaccharide molecules and label as such Label the entire molecule as a polysaccharide Does this represent a complex or simple carbohydrate? How can you tell? Polymer = Nucleic Acids The two kinds are ______________ and _______________ Monomer = _____________________ Functions: In the following diagram: Color the nitrogen base green The sugar yellow Phosphate group blue Polymer: Protein Monomer = ____________________ Function(s): For EACH of the amino acids below: Color the amino group Green, color the carboxyl group blue, color the R group yellow Circle on the diagrams where water will be removed to form a peptide bond Redraw the molecules bonded together, and label the bond How are these two molecules the same? How are they different? Which part of the molecules is the functional part? Lipids Functions: Examples On each of the diagrams Label Which one is saturated and which is unsaturated, and circle the part that shows you the difference Color the glycerol portion green Color the fatty acid tails yellow Is the unsaturated lipid? How can you tell?
