Insoluble not made of polymers Fats, acids, and waxes.Made of tryglycerides
1 glyercol and 3 fatty acids. Fatty acids are hydrocarbon chains with a carbonxyol group at one end.
A saturated fatty acid
a monosaturated fatty acid; double bond
a polyunsaturated fatty acid; double bond
look like normal lipids except that one fatty acid chain is replaced by a phosphate group, found in cell membranes, and Amphipathic
characterized by a backbone of four linked carbon rings; Cholesterol and some hormones such as testosterone and estrogen
polymers made of amino acids, Peptide bonds connect the amino acids, 20 kinds of amino acids.
a peptide chain
contains an amino group (-NH2), hydrogen atom (H), a carboxyl group (-COOH) and radical(R).

order of the amino acids in a peptide chain. (Cys-Tyr-Phe-Gln)
a 3D shape that results from hydrogen bonds between amino and carboxyl groups.
