nucleotides/lipids

  1. what are the pyrimidines
    • cytosine
    • thymine
    • uracil
  2. purines
    • adenine
    • guanine
  3. whats the difference between ribonucleosides and ribonucleotides
    • ribonucleoside: base+ribose
    • ribonucleotides: base + ribose + phosphate
  4. ribonucleotides are what to nucleic acids
    monomers
  5. what is an example of nucleotide derivatives
    Glucose-1-phosphate + ATP ----> ADP-glucose
  6. what are the subclasses of lipids
    • fatty acids
    • phospholipids
    • steroids
  7. what are fatty acids composed of
    • acidic head group
    • long hydrocarbon tail
  8. difference between saturated and unsaturated fatty acid
    • saturated: no C=C
    • unsaturated: has C=C
  9. what are some common fatty acids
    • myristic
    • palmitic
    • oleic
    • linoleic
    • linolenic
    • arachidonic
  10. what are the components of triaclglycerol and function
    • glycerol
    • palmitic acid (3x)
    • contains ester bond
    • storage fat
  11. what are the components of phospholipids
    • glycerol
    • phosphoric acid
    • mostly found in membranes
  12. what are the variations of phospholipids
    • choline
    • ethanolamine
    • serine
    • inositol
    • dipalmitoyl phosphatidylcholine "lecithin"
  13. what are is an example of a steroid
    cholesterol
  14. what is infant respiratory distress syndrome
    when premature infants are deficient in lung surfactant (lecithin) they develop hyaline membrane disease and are born with a collasped lung
