Carbohydrates and proteins
The two contain a carbon backbone that is made of smaller
structures known as monomers. The two components are also structured through
dehydration synthesis and can be destroyed through hydrolysis. The two can also
produce 4Kcal of energy per gram.
Proteins are large organic compounds constructed with amino
acids while carbohydrates do not possess the amino group. The amino acids in
proteins are in a linear chain joined by peptide bonds. Secondly, proteins
function in a movement while they recognize antigens throughout their
movements. On the other side, carbohydrates are a quick energy food that comprises
of basic units called monosaccharides with a general formula C H2O.
