    Biomolecules Chemical principles that are components and functions inliving organism. Biomolecules that are the major constituents of cellsProteins : long polymers of aminoacids Nucleic acids (DNA and RNA):polymers of nucleotides Polysaccharides : polymers of simple sugars Lipids : building from glycerol andfatty acids    Stereospecificity of biomolecules is important tocatalytic functions. ãIn living organisms, only one form of isomers of biomoleculescan be employed as components and functions.ãProteins or enzymes can only bind to specific isomers,D-isomer form of sugar or L-isomer form of amino acid.ãCompounds of carbon commonly exist as stereoisomers.    Subdivision of isomers Diasteroisomer Enantiomer  (chiral molecules)    Chirality A chiral object has a mirror image that is different from thesrcinal object (for not chiral, being called achiral)
