Use your textbook pages 166- 171 to help you to answer the
following questions. Write your answer only on a separate sheet
of paper.

  1. In humans and other multi-cellular organisms, which
     macromolecule plays a central role as an energy source?
  2. Why can’t humans digest all carbohydrates like other
     member’s of the animalia kingdom (cows, horses, etc.)?
  3. What is the main difference between saturated and
     unsaturated fats?
  4. Which element is found in proteins but not carbohydrates or
     lipids?
  5. Discuss the importance of amino acid order to a protein’s
     function. (Essay format.)
  6. Given the large number of proteins in the body, explain why
     the shape of an enzyme is important to its function.(Essay
     format.)
  7. Many kinds of molecules found in living organisms are made
     of smaller monomers that are put together in different
     sequences, or in different patterns. For example, organisms
     use a small number of nucleotides to make nucleic acids.
     Thousands of different sequences of nucleotides in nucleic
     acids provide the basic coding for all the genetic information
     in living things. Describe how it is beneficial for organisms
     to use monomers to create complex macromolecules. (Essay
     format)
  8. In an unknown substance found on a meteorite is determined
     to contain no trace of carbon, can scientists conclude that
     there is life at the meteorite’s origin? (Essay format.)
