Biomolecules

Question Answer
ProteinsThey provide structure to cells and even body parts (like collagen that gives strength to the skin), they help cell communication (like hormones) and may help to transport substances (like hemoglobin).
LipidsThey help to regulate the temperature. The cholesterol helps to form steroids. They also have uses in the industry like wax for candles. They are also a secondary source of energy.
Ribonucleic acidsThey help to store, translate and transport genetic information. It includes DNA and RNA (messenger, ribosomal and translation).
CarbohydratesThey are an important source of energy for living beings. They are commonly known as sugars or fibers. They include glucose, fructose, and lactose.

Cabrohydrates

Question Answer
MonosaccharidesThey are composed by only a sugar like glucose
DisaccharidesThey are composed by more than one sugar like lactose (made of glucose and galactose)
PolysaccharidesThey are composed by more than 2 sugars like fibers or starch.
