Carbohydrates Amino Acids and Peptides

IIT JEE AIEEE Carbohydrates, Amino Acids and Peptides Course Material - Study Material

In The later part of 1950 resulted in classic advance in the knowledge of how living cells engage themselves with molecules such as carbohydrates additionally the metabolism of carbohydrates also became clarified. In Biochemistry Carbohydrates belong to basic category of chemical compounds. They are biological means of consuming energy or storing energy; other forms being via fat and protein. Complex carbohydrates are known as polysaccharides.

Amino acids and Peptides link in a head-to-tail style, i.e. the molecules are bounded by ionic interactions and H-bonds involving α-amino and α-carboxylate groups. Further, from several crystal structures it was confirmed that head to tail arrangement is unaffected by presence of water molecules. However, in the hydrated cases the case is different.


Askiitians provides free Study Material - Course Material for IIT JEE AIEEE preparation in Carbohydrates Amino Acids and Peptides. From the examination point of view Biomolecules and carbohydrates are very important in better understanding of many graduate courses specifically medical.
