    the attractive force between a [slightly] positive H atom of one molecule, and a [slightly] negative atom (usually O or N) of another molecule
  27. What elements are included in carbohydrates? and why?
    • C, H, O
    • they are biological fuels that are burned (or oxidized) for energy
  28. What are the 3 activities for which cells use energy?
    • Movement 
    • Biosynthesis / growth (assembling complex 
    • molecules from simpler ones) 
    • Active transport (moving substances across 
    • membranes)

  31. What are disaccharides? What are the disaccharides?
    • Disaccharides are made of 2 glucose molecules
    • The types of disaccharides are sucrose (fructose+glucose), lactose (glucose+galactose), and maltose (glucose+glucose)
  32. What are polysaccharides? What are some polysaccharide molecules?
    • Polysaccharides are many glucose molecules together
    • Some polysaccharides include cellulose, starch, and glycogen
  33. Photosynthesis and metabolism equations?
    • photosynthesis 
    • E (energy) + CO2+ H20-->sugars (starch) + O2 

    • metabolism 
    • sugars (starch) + O2-->CO2+ H20 + E

    • for when you fast
  35. Know hypo/hyperglycemia chart
  36. What is a hormone?
    Substance (made by our cells) which travels through the blood to reach “target cells” and triggers those cells to some action.

    Most cells (liver, muscle, etc)
  40. What is the function of insulin?
    take up of glucose and conversion to glycogen

  43. What is the function of glucagon?
    Convert glycogen back to glucose (6-P)

  45. What are the target cells for adrenaline?
    muscle, liver, heart, blood vessels, etc

    activate flight fright fight response

  48. What are the 2 hormones of glucose regulation?
    • Insulin
    • Glucagon
  49. What happens when you feast and have high blood glucose?
    the pancreas releases insulin which binds to the outside of the cell and sends a signal for the cell to take up glucose and convert it to glycogen for storage
  50. What happens when you fast and blood glucose is low?
    Glucagon is released from the pancreas and attaches to the cell and signals for conversion of glycogen back to glucose and release back into the blood
  51. What are the types of lipids?
    • Sterols (Cholesterol Steroids Estrogen Progesteron Testosterone)
    • Fats ( Saturated & unsaturated fatty acids)
    • Phospholipids  (lipids with “phosphate”)
  52. What do lipids do?
    • Provide energy for animals 
    • ---->1 gram lipid -->about 3,000 calories energy 
    • ---->1 gram carbohydrate -->about 1,000 calories energy 
    • Principal component of membranes
  53. What is a fatty acid?
    a type of fat, a lipid witha long chain hydrocarbon with “COOH” at one end 
  54. What is a glycerol?
    not a lipid, but the “backbone” of fats known as triglycerides
  55. What is a tryglyceride?
    a type of fat, a lipid with three fatty acids attached to a glycerol backbone
  56. What is a phospholipid?
    • a lipid containing phosphate
    • makes up most cell membranes
  57. What is the structure of a phospholipid?
    Two fatty acids attached to a glycerol with some other molecule (r group) attatched
  58. What is the difference between saturated and unsaturated fats?
    • Saturated: solid at room temperature, as many hydrogens as possible
    • Unsaturated: liquid at room temp, double bonds
  59. What are the 2 other structures phospholipids can form?
    • Micelles
    • Liposomes- used for drug delivery by binding to a cell and opening and releasing drug to fight cancer, antifungal infections, post surgery pains, etc.
