Well I don't really mean nutritionally, just how much chemical energy is stored in there. I think the order of macromolecules from most chemical energy to least is: canola oil > glycogen > starch > cellulose > glucose but I just don't know if cellulose would have higher chem energy than glycogen due...

Re: Protein Localization

does this have something to do with locating a part of the main sequence called the nuclear localization signal with indicates nuclear localization? and if so what is the sequence of the nuclear localization signal?

I have used predictor tools but I want to know how to predict localization just by looking at the primary sequence.

Protein Localization

Hey guys, so I'm given a long strand of protein (shown below). It is predicted to be nuclear localized but how can I know that it's nuclear localized just by looking at its primary sequence? I mean we can probably do some protein tagging to localize it experimentally but I have no idea how the predi...

Chemical Energy of Macromolecules

Hey guys, I'm having trouble figuring out which of the following molecules have more chemical energy per gram: cellulose, glucose, starch, canola oil, or glycogen I think the canola oil probably has the most energy because it's a highly reduced fatty acid. I don't know which one of glucose, starch, ...

Glucose vs Fatty Acid in Energy

Hi guys I'm wondering which would release more energy by combustion, a mole of glucose(C6H12O6) or a mole of hexanoic acid (C6H12O2)? And also, which of the two will produce more ATP? My idea is that glucose is more oxidized thus it has lower free energy so it probably doesn't release as much energy...
