Hydrolysis and dehydration synthesis
Cells build carbohydrate polymers by using energy to form , the bonds between monosaccharides. A dehydration synthesis reaction forms a bond between carbon atoms in two monosaccharides, sandwiching an oxygen atom between them and releasing a water molecule. A disaccharide forms when two monomers are joined. Sucrose (table sugar) is made by joining two specific monomers, glucose and fructose. Different monosaccharide pairs produce many of the common disaccharide sugars we associate with food, including sucrose, maltose (malt sugar, two glucose monomers) and lactose (milk sugar, glucose and galactose monomers).
PowToon - Hydrolysis and Dehydration Synthesis
~This process is essential to energy metabolism and energy storageDehydration synthesis removes water to join monomers & create a polymerOHHOH + OH=H2OO~This process makes compounds such as polysaccharides, tryglycerides, and proteins, which are essential to biosynthesisIn short, hydrolysis synthesis breaks down compounds with the help of water and is essential to metabolism and energy storage,synthesis gets rid of water to create compounds that are used in processes that keep us alive.
