  • Amino Acids
    • Proteins
      • Monomers
    • Monomer of proteins
    • Amino group one end Acid group other end
      • H     R      O      N -  C -  C     H     H     OH
        • Double bond between CO group
        • R group: amino acid
          • Plants make own amino acids
            • Converted into amino group
              • Bond to photosynthesis products
    • Animals cant make own amino acids
      • Need to take proteins in as apart of diet
        • Essential amino acids
      • Amino acids are toxic
        • Must be excreted
        • Deamination: converted from urea to urine
          • Must be excreted
        • Cant be stored
    • Peptide bonds
      • Amino acids are joined by them
      • Condensation reaction forms covalent bonds
        • Between monomers
      • Dipeptide molecule formed
        • Condensation reaction forms covalent bonds
          • Between monomers
        • O                 H   C     +   N  OH              H
          • =
