3 of 9
Starch - Structure
Alpha glucose - Amylose & Amylopectin - V. Compact - Insoluable
4 of 9
Cellulose - Structure
Beta glucose - Chained making it V. strong - Don't bend easily
5 of 9
Glycogen - Structure
Alpha glucose - branched as it has more 1-6 glycosidic bonds than starch - Compact - Easily hydrolysed - Insoluable
6 of 9
Starch - Function
Store of energy in form of glucose - Compact, ideal for storage product as fits into small space.
7 of 9
Cellulose - Function
Supportive of the cell, makes the cell strong. Lattice formed to make it even stronger.
8 of 9
