Polysaccharides, a type of
carbohydrate, consist of simple sugar
monomers linked together by glycosidic linkages. Starting with the
sugar molecule in the box above, build a 4-molecule polysaccharide.
You will need to drag, possibly rotate, and drop the correct molecules
to the correct positions to form glycosidic linkages. Remember that it
is important that the sugar monomers are properly aligned to form the
linkages. When you get the correct molecule in the correct spot to
form a glycosidic linkage, a water molecule, indicating the
will be released.
Build a Carbohydrate
Rotate, and Drop the correct molecules into the shaded
box to produce a 4-molecule polysaccharide.
Use Alt-click (Windows) or Option-click (Macintosh) on an
object to rotate it clockwise.
