Sample text

Given the complexity of substitutions on the carbon chain, it should be apparent that the monosaccharides like glucose and ribose can exist as a number of structurally different isomers. The main isomer of glucose that is found in nature is the compound shown in Fig. 9, which is known as the D-enantiomer. The D-enantiomer form of monosaccharides is determined by the configuration of substituents around the asymmetric carbon atom farthest from the main functional group of the molecule. In glucose the main functional group is the C1 aldehyde.

Therefore, RER is involved with protein production. 1 shows a generic animal cell. The outer boundary, or cell membrane, forms a compartment that is biochemically distinct from Nucleus Nucleolus Nuclear pore Nuclear envelope Peroxisome Secretory vesicle Plasma membrane Rough endoplasmic reticulum Lysosome Centrioles Bound ribosomes Endosome Free ribosomes Golgi apparatus Smooth endoplasmic reticulum Mitochondrion Microfilaments Microtubule Typical animal cell showing characteristic organelles and cellular inclusions.

As a result a bend or kink is introduced into the otherwise linear hydrocarbon chain. This reduces the ability of the molecule to pack tightly with contiguous triglycerides. In general, the greater the amount of unsaturation and the shorter the hydrocarbon chains, the less tightly the triglycerides can pack. The result is that at room temperature bulk quantities of short and/or unsaturated triglycerides exist in the liquid state and are known as oils, while the longer chain, more saturated triglycerides, known as fats, are solid at room temperature.
