574 356 566 MCAT Organic Chemistry Chapter6 Triacylglycerols (TG) The storage form of the fatty acid is the fat The technical name for fat is triacylglycerol (shown below) The triglyceride is composed of three fatty acids esterified to a glycerol molecule Glycerol is a three-carbon triol with the formula HOCH 2-CHOH-CH 20H As you can see, it has three hydroxyl groups that can be esterified to fatty acids It is necessary to store fatty acids in the relatively inert form of fat because free fatty acids are reactive chemicals A Triglyceride (Fat) II H2C-0-C-Rl ~~ H 2C - - C - R / R-groups may be the same or different II H2C-O-C-R3 The triacylglycerol undergoes reactions typical of esters, such as base-catalyzed hydrolysis Soap is economically produced by base-catalyzed hydrolysis of triglycerides from animal fat into fatty acid salts (soaps) This reaction is called saponification and is illustrated below Saponification oAR1 + II H C-O-C-R NaOH + oAR2 II + H2C-O-C-R3 Triacylglycerol Glycerol oAR3 Fatty acids Lipases are enzymes that hydrolyze fats Triacylglycerols are stored in fat cells as an energy source Fats are more efficient energy storage molecules than carbohydrates for two reasons: packing and energy content MCAT Organic Chemistry Biologically-Important Organic Chemistry 567 1) Packing Their hydrophobicity allows fats to pack together much more closely than carbohydrates Carbohydrates carry a great amount of water-of-solvation (water molecules hydrogen bonded to their hydroxyl groups) In other words the amount of carbon per unit area or unit weight is much greater in a fat droplet than in dissolved sugar If we could store sugars in a dry powdery form in our bodies, this problem would be obviated 2) Energy content All packing considerations aside, fat molecules store much more energy than carbohydrates In other words, regardless of what you dissolve it in, a fat has more energy carbonfor-carbon than a carbohydrate The reason is that fats are much more reduced Remember that energy metabolism begins with the oxidation of foodstuffs to release energy Since carbohydrates are more oxidized to start with, oxidizing them releases less energy Animals use fat to store most of their energy, storing only a small amount as carbohydrates (glycogen) Plants such as potatoes commonly store a large percentage of their energy as carbohydrates (starch) Introduction to Lipid Bilayer Membranes Membrane lipids are phospholipids derived from diacylglycerol phosphate or DG-P For example, phosphatidyl choline is a phospholipid formed by the esterification of a choline molecule [HO(CH2) 2N+(CH 3) 3] to the phosphate group of DG-P Phospholipids are detergents, substances that efficiently solubilize oils while remaining highly water-soluble Detergents are like soaps, but stronger A Phosphoglyceride (Diacylglycerol Phosphate, or DGP) Diacylglycerol phosphate We saw above how fatty acids spontaneously form micelles Phospholipids also minimize their interactions with water by forming an orderly structure-in this case it is a lipid bilayer (below) Hydrophobic interactions drive the formation of the bilayer, and once formed, it is stabilized by van der Waals forces between the long tails Chapter6 568 MCAT Organic Chemistry A Small Section of a Lipid Bilayer Membrane 56) Would a saturated or an unsaturated fatty acid residue have more van der Waals interactions with neighboring alkyl chains in a bilayer membrane?56 A more precise way to give the answer to the above question is to say that double bonds (unsaturation) in phospholipid fatty acids tend to increase membrane fluidity Unsaturation prevents the membrane from solidifying by disrupting the orderly packing of the hydrophobic lipid tails This decreases the melting point The right amount of fluidity is essential for function Decreasing the length of fatty acid tails also increases fluidity The steroid cholesterol (discussed below) is a third important modulator of membrane fluidity At low temperatures, it increases fluidity in the same way as kinks in fatty acid tails; hence it is known as a membrane antifreeze At high temperatures, however, cholesterol attenuates (reduces) membrane fluidity Don't ponder this paradox too long; just remember that cholesterol keeps fluidity at an optimum level Remember, the structural determinants of membrane fluidity are: degree of saturation, tail length, and amount of cholesterol The lipid bilayer acts like a plastic bag surrounding the cell in the sense that it seals the interior of the cell from the exterior However, the cell membrane is much more complex than a plastic bag Since the plasma bilayer membrane surrounding cells is impermeable to charged molecules such as Na+, protein gateways such as ion channels are required for these molecules to enter or exit cells Proteins that are integrated into membranes also transmit signals from the outside of the cell into the interior For example, certain hormones (peptides) cannot pass through the cell membrane due to their charged nature, instead, protein receptors in the cell membrane bind these hormones and transmit a signal into the cell in a second messenger cascade 56 The bent shape of the unsaturated fatty acid means that it doesn't fit in as well and has less contact with neighboring groups to form van der Waals interactions Unsaturations make the membrane less stable, less solid MCAT Organic Chemistry 569 Biologically-Important Organic Chemistry 6.5 Steroids Steroids are included here because of their hydrophobicity, and hence similarity to fats Their structure is otherwise unique All steroids have the basic tetracyclic ring system (see below), based on the structure of cholesterol, a polycyclic amphipath (Polycyclic means several rings, and amphipathic means displaying both hydrophilic and hydrophobic characteristics.) As discussed above, the steroid cholesterol is an important component of the lipid bilayer It is obtained from the diet and synthesized in the liver It is carried in the blood packaged with fats and proteins into lipoproteins One type of lipoprotein has been implicated as the cause of atherosclerotic vascular disease, which refers to the build-up of cholesterol "plaques" on the inside of blood vessels Cholesterol-Derived Hormones tetracyclic ring system cholesterol HO testosterone estrogen Steroid hormones are made from cholesterol Two examples are testosterone (an androgen or male sex hormone) and estradiol (an estrogen or female sex hormone) There are no receptors for steroid hormones on the surface of cells If this is true, how can they exert an influence on the cell? Because steroids are highly hydrophobic, they can diffuse right through the lipid bilayer membrane into the cytoplasm The receptors for steroid hormones are located within cells rather than on the cell surface This is an important point You must be aware of the contrast between peptide MCAT Organic Chemistry Chapter6 570 hormones such as insulin, which exert their effects by binding to receptors at the cell-surface, and steroid hormones such as estrogen, which diffuse into cells to find their receptors 57) Would a saturated or an unsaturated fatty acid residue have more van der Waals interactions with neighboring alkyl chains in a bilayer membrane?57 6.6 Nucleic Acids Before we can talk about nucleic acids, we must first briefly review some background 6.6.1 Phosphorus-Containing Compounds Phosphoric acid is an inorganic acid (it does not contain carbon) with the potential to donate three protons The Kas for the three acid dissociation equilibria are 2.1, 7.2, and 12.4 Therefore at physiological pH, phosphoric acid is significantly dissociated, existing largely in anionic form Phosphoric Acid II HO-P-OH I OH II HO-P-00 l OH II HO-P-00 ~0 A._ II -u-P-00 ~0 Phosphate is also known as orthophosphate Two orthophosphates bound together via an anhydride linkage form pyrophosphate The P-0-P bond in pyrophosphate is an example of a high energy phosphate bond This name is derived from the fact that the hydrolysis of pyrophosphate is thermodynamically extremely favorable (shown below) The D.Go' for the hydrolysis of pyrophosphate is about -7 kcal/mol This means that it is a very favorable reaction The actualD.G in the cell is about -12 kcal/mol, which is even more favorable There are three reasons that phosphate anhydride bonds store so much energy: 1) When phosphates are linked together their negative charges repel each other strongly 2) Orthophosphate has more resonance forms and thus a lower free energy than linked phosphates 3) Orthophosphate has a more favorable interaction with the biological solvent (water) than linked phosphates The details are not cruciaL What is essential is that you fix the image in your mind of linked phosphates acting like compressed springs, just waiting to fly open and provide energy for an enzyme to catalyze a reaction 57 The bent shape of the unsaturated fatty acid means that it doesn't fit in as well and has less contact with neighboring groups to form van der Waals interactions Unsaturations make the membrane less stable, less solid 571 Biologically-Important Organic Chemistry MCAT Organic Chemistry The Hydrolysis of Pyrophosphate 0 e0 - P II - - PII - e 6e + be II Ho 2 HO-P-0 e 6e 6.6.2 Nucleotides Nucleotides are the building blocks of nucleic acids (RNA and DNA) Each nucleotide contains a ribose (or deoxyribose) sugar group, a purine or pyrimidine base joined to carbon number one of the ribose ring, and one, two or three phosphate units joined to carbon five of the ribose ring The nucleotide Qdenosine triphosphate (ATP) plays a central role in cellular metabolism in addition to being an RNA precursor ATP is the universal short-tenn energy storage molecule Energy extracted from the oxidation of foodstuffs is immediately stored in ATP' s phosphoanhydride bonds This energy will later be used to power cellular processes; it may also be used to synthesize glucose or fats, which are longer-term energy storage molecules This applies to all living organisms, from bacteria to humans Even some viruses carry ATP with them outside the host cell, though viruses cannot make their own ATP Adenosine Triphosphate (A TP) NH2 e 0 II II II le le 0- le s' 0-P - - P - -P-0-CH2 4' H OH
