Essential Amino Acids: Definition, and Functions. Definitions of Essential Amino Acids Amino acids are the smallest unit of protein and can be defined as an organic molecule made up of amine and carboxylic acid functional groups—an amino acid is composed of nitrogen, carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen molecules.

Essential Amino Acids: Definition, and Functions

Essential amino acids, also called limiting amino acids, are those that can not be produced in our body and there fore have to be obtained from food sources. There are 8 essential amino acids. Functions of essential amino acids Amino acids are useful components in a variety of metabolisms. Australian Guide to Healthy Eating. Overview of metabolism: Anabolism and catabolism. Condensation and Hydrolysis. To the right of this page (and in the menu bar above) I have put a number of links to other files on this website showing animations of condensation and hydrolysis.

Condensation and Hydrolysis

At the bottom of the page there are also links to related topics at this level on the BioTopics website. Condensation - basic principles The term monomer is given to single (smaller, simple) sub-units from which (larger, complex) molecular stuctures called polymers are built up by condensation. Condensation is a chemical process by which 2 molecules are joined together to make a larger, more complex, molecule, with the loss of water. ATP & Respiration: Biology #7.
