  2. 2.  Biopolymers introduction  Types of biopolymers Carbohydrates Proteins Lipids Nucleic acids Contents
  3. 3. Biopolymers are polymers produced by living organisms; in other words, they are polymeric biomolecules. Since they are polymers, biopolymers contain monomeric units that are covalently bonded to form larger structures.
  4. 4. Types of Biopolymers BIOPOLYMER Polynucleotide Polypeptide polysaccharides There are three types of BIOPOLYMERS according to their monomeric units used and the structure of biopolymer formed.
  5. 5. Biorenewable biopolymers • Polymers of biological origin Carbohydrates…..starch Proteins……haemoglobin Nucleic acids….DNA Lipids…..
  6. 6. Nucleic Acids
  7. 7. Nucleic Acids • Large and complex organic molecules that store and transfer genetic information in the cell • Types of nucleic acids i. DNA =deoxyribonucleic acid ii. RNA = Ribonucleic acid
  8. 8. Building blocks of Nucleic Acids • Monomers of nucleic acids are nucleotides • Components of a nucleotide - nitrogen base - sugar - phosphate

  39. 39.  is a long-chain polymer of an N-acetyl glucosamine. a derivative of glucose, and is found in many places throughout the natural world. It is a characteristic component of the cell walls of fungi, the exoskeletons of arthropods such as crustaceans and insects, and other living cell organisms Chitin A close-up of the wing of a sap beetle; the wing is composed of chitin
  40. 40.  Chitin is a modified polysaccharide that contains nitrogen  it is synthesized from units of N-acetylglucosamine (to be precise, 2-(acetylamino)-2-deoxy-D-glucose).  These units form covalent β-1,4 linkages, (similar to the linkages between glucose units forming cellulose).  Therefore, chitin may be described as cellulose with one hydroxyl group on each monomer replaced with an acetyl amine group.  This allows for increased hydrogen bonding between adjacent polymers, giving the chitin-polymer matrix increased strength.  In its pure, unmodified form, chitin is translucent, pliable, resilient, and quite tough.  In most arthropods, however, it is often modified, occurring largely as a component of composite materials, such as in sclerotin, a tanned proteinaceous matrix, which forms much of the exoskeleton of insects.
  41. 41.  Combined with calcium carbonate, as in the shells of crustaceans and molluscs, chitin produces a much stronger composite. This composite material is much harder and stiffer than pure chitin, and is tougher and less brittle than pure calcium carbonate.  Another difference between pure and composite forms can be seen by comparing the flexible body wall of a caterpillar to the stiff, light elytron of a beetle (containing a large proportion of sclerotin ). •USES Chitin can be used in many different branches of: •Agriculture •Medicine •Industry •Biomedical researchs
  42. 42. Keratin filaments are abundant in keratinocytes in the cornified layer of the epidermis; these are proteins which have undergone keratinization. In addition, keratin filaments are present in epithelial cells in general. For example, mouse thymic epithelial cells (TECs) are known to react with antibodies for keratin 5, keratin 8, and keratin 14. These antibodies are used as fluorescent markers to distinguish subsets of TECs in genetic studies of the thymus. Silk fibroin, considered a β-keratin( glycine and alanine 75– 80% of the total, with 10–15% serine, with the rest having bulky side groups) The chains are antiparallel , with an alternating C → N orientation Keratın
  43. 43. the α-keratins in the hair (including wool), horns, nails, claws and hooves of mammals. the harder β-keratins found in nails and in the scales and claws of reptiles, their shells (Testudines, such as tortoise, turtle, terrapin), and in the feathers, beaks, claws of birds and quills of porcupines. Horns such as those of the impala are made up of keratin covering a core of live bone.
  44. 44.  a translucent, colorless, brittle flavorless food derived from collagen obtained from various animal by-products.  Gelatin is an irreversibly hydrolyzed form of collagen.  Substances containing gelatin or functioning in a similar way are called "gelatinous".  Gelatin is a mixture of peptides and proteins produced by partial hydrolysis of collagen extracted from the skin, bones, and connective tissues of animals such as domesticated cattle, chicken, pigs, horses, and fish.  Gelatin readily dissolves in hot water, and sets to a gel on cooling and in most polar solvent.  The mechanical properties of gelatin gels are very sensitive to temperature variations.  The upper melting point is below human body temperature. gelatıne
  45. 45.  The worldwide production amount of gelatin is about 375,000 metric tons per year.  On a commercial scale, gelatin is made from by-products of the meat and leather industries.  The procedure of produce gelatin have many steps which are : pretreatment, extraction, recovery.
  46. 46.  Culinary uses : different types and grades of gelatin are used in a wide range of food and nonfood products ( gelatin desserts).  Technical uses : •Hide silver halides. •Gelatin is closely related to bone glue and is used as a binder in match heads and sandpaper. •Cosmetics may contain a nongelling variant of gelatin under the name hydrolyzed collagen. •Drugs capsules. And other uses
