what is general formula of monosaccarides? CnH2nOn
what is the general formula of polysaccahrides? (C6H10O5)n
Carbohydrates can be classifed as? monosaccharides, disaccarides and polysaccahrides
polysaccarides are composed of? polymers
plants store energy as? starch
muscle cells store energy as? glycogen
maltose is composed of which two sugars? glucose and glucose
cellulose is made of molecules of? Alpha glucose
what are the functions of carbohydrates? it functions as an energy source, structural components of DNA and RNA
which simple sugar does not contain a reducing anomeric carbon? sucrose
what are some of the characteristics of monosaccharides? Monosaccharides are the simplest forms of sugar and they are usually colorless, water-soluble, crystalline solids.Some have s sweet taste
What are some examples of monosaccarides? glucose, fructose, galactose, xylose and ribose
Monosaccarides are the building blocks of? disaccarides and polysaccarides
What functional group do monosaccarides contain? they contain either a ketone or aldehyde, and hydroxyl groups on most or all of the non-carbonyl carbon atoms
what the term disaccarides mean? it means two sugars
how are disaccarides formed? they are formed from the condensation reaction of two monosaccarides
What are some characteristics of disaccarides? like monosaccarides, disaccarides are soluble in water, they have sweet taste
Give and example of a disaccaride? sucrose, maltose, lactose
What is sucrose made up of? it is made up of glucose and frucose
maltose is composed of which two sugars? glucose and glucose
What is lactose made up of? lactose present in milk, and it is made up of glucose and galactose
When disaccarides are formed through the condensation of two monosaccarides, what is released? a water molecule
what are some characteristics of disaccarides? they are crytalline, sometimes water soluble, and some are sweet tasting
what are polysaccarides made of? polysaccarides are composed of monosaccaride units.
what are some functions of polysaccarides? their main function is storage or structural compounds
where do you think polysaccarides are concentrated? they are present in large amounts in connective tissue
Where is the major structural difference between cellulose and starch found? in the linkages between the monosaccarides units present
Give an example of a polysaccaride where all glycosidic linkages are beta (1 --> 4)? cellulose
What is starch an example of? glucosans
Give an example of polysaccaride that is indigestible by man? cellulose
Give some examples of polysaccarides? starch, cellulose, glycogen, chitin
