The Four Macromolecules

Post by luvinpurple » Wed Sep 12, 2012 1:04 am

For an assignment, I have to find out what the four macromolecules are and give examples of each. I figured out that the four macromolecules are carbohydrates, lipids, polypeptides and nucleic acids but I can't find examples of any of them. If anyone knows anything about this subject can you please help me? Thanks :)

I'm pretty sure, you can find some examples _at_

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

1- this carbohydrate tastes great in coffee,
2- the lipids go well with toast or can be used to fry the eggs,
3- the eggs are rich in polypeptides,
4- nucleic acids are in each cell: one kind lives in the nucleus and organelles while another one travels around...
