    monosaccharides. They may also contain either a ketone or aldehyde functional group (King, 2014). Some examples of monosaccharide include- glucose, galactose and fructose. Disaccharides are part of oligosaccharides-they contain 2 monomer units - maltose is made of 2 glucose molecules, lactose made of a galactose and glucose molecule and sucrose which consists of a glucose and fructose molecule serve as some examples. They are bound together by 1, 4 glycosidic bonds. Cellulose, starch and glycogen are examples

  • Sugar and Its Effect on Our Bodies

    848 Words  | 3 Pages

    Many foods and drinks around the world are laced with sugar and the sugar levels are indicated. Sugar is added to not only sweeten things, but to also improve the texture. Sugar is to some extent used as a preservative as well, for example, when added to cut up fresh berries, the berries remain fresher for longer than one without sugar. Processed foods are likely to have higher sugar levels than home cooked foods since adding sugar is a modest way adding volume and weight. Sugar also aids in making

    Healthline shows that in a non-diabetic person, the beta cells in the pancreas, produce insulin to keep sugar levels at a normal rate; not too high, nor too low. Insulin is a hormone that allows your body to use glucose(sugar) you get from carbohydrates in foods that you eat for energy. The leftover glucose will flow

  • In The Nature Episode We Were Introduced To Yosemite National

    In the Nature episode we were introduced to Yosemite National park, located in the heart of California’s Sierra Nevada mountains stretching the distance of California. The Sierra Nevada is known for its harsh climates, beautiful landscape, and the incredible Yosemite valley. In this nature episode we saw how global warming is affecting the Sierra Nevada ecosystem due to the devastating drought in California. The episode starts with hang gliders setting their gliders up, and gliding above the valley

    component of sucrose, normal table sugar, along with glucose. Whereas glucose is able to immediately enter into glycolysis, fructose is not. Fructose is broken down via fructokinase into fructose- 1-phosphate. Fructose – 1-phospate then gets converted into DHAP+ glyceraldehyde via aldolase B. DHAP+ glyceraldehyde is used in glycolysis to produce pyruvate that goes into the citric acid cycle to produce ATP

  • Diffusion Across Biological Membranes: a Simulation

    2, Diffusion of molecules before and after. Figure 2, Diffusion of molecules before and after. From figure 2, we can observe diffusion taking place.’S’ represent starch, ‘i’ represents iodine and ‘g’ represent glucose. As initially, 1 inch dialysis tube consists of iodine and glucose and 3 inch dialysis tube consists of starch. However, after 1 hour, the iodine molecules got diffused into 3 inch dialysis tube and also the water in the beaker turned slightly cloudy in the final stage. Figure

    was determined. To make a standard curve of glucose, 6 samples of 3 ml of Trinder reagent were heated at 37°C. After 5 minutes, 30 µl of 0.2 M citrate buffer was added to one sample, 30 µl of 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8, and 1.0 were added to one of the remaining 5 samples of Trinder reagent and heated for 10 minutes at the same temperature. Absorbance of the standards was measured (Clendening). Y= .3985x - .0005, R2 = .9871 To measure the free glucose and glycogen, 2 samples of 3 ml of Trinder reagent

    fruits. Although it is one of three sugars with same chemical formula C6H12O6, along with glucose and galactose, they all have diverse chemical structures. Fructose can be derived from fruits and several vegetables, as well as from honey and flowers. While there are various sources of dietary fructose, other sugar have been introduced into our diet. Sucrose is a disaccharide by two simple sugars, fructose and glucose, bonding. It is commercially derived from cane sugar, sugar beets and corn, which go

    Insulin is a hormone that allows the body to store glucose. Diabetes is a disease state that results from the body not able to use insulin or the body cannot produce enough insulin. Since there is lack of insulin in a diabetic, glucose is not able to be stored. This means that glucose remains in the body and draws water out of cells causing dehydration. Additionally, the kidneys cannot reabsorb excess glucose and it spills into urine causing an osmotic effect. The above problems

    process when the blood supplies enough oxygen to the cells, which is:- Glucose+ oxygen—>Carbon Dioxide+ water+ Energy. But when the blood cannot get the needed oxygen to the cells, it has to get the energy from the glucose in another way. The cells use the anaerobic pathway; It does this then by breaking glucose down into lactic acid, Glucose—>Lactic Acid+ Energy. Lactic acid is released into the muscles when they have used up glucose stores but still have intense energy needs. Small amounts of lactic
