Unlike glucose, the large glycogen polymers are insoluble in the cell contents. This means that large amounts of glucose may be stored in the form of glycogen without affecting the concentration and osmotic pressure of the cytoplasm. Biopolymers 35 Other polysaccharides have been found in various tissues in which monosacchar­ ide units other than glucose are found. These are present particularly in cell membranes and mucopolysaccharides. Although the polysaccharides have extremely important functions in the body, the two groups of biopolymer on which the cell depends most are the nucleic acids and the proteins.

Both covalent and ionic bonds may be formed, perhaps strengthened by a change in the active site microenvironment induced by formation of the complex. General metabolism 31 The forces involved in locating the substrate in the correct position on the enzyme may also be involved in the catalytic activity. The chemical forces between the enzyme and the substrate may weaken hitherto stable bonds in the substrate and cause them to break. Further direction of a reaction pathway by chemical groups on the enzyme and/or proximity of a similarly activated coreactant leads to completion of the reaction.

15). When a primary hormone reaches its target cell, a reaction occurs with a hormone receptor. This reaction activates the enzyme adenyl cyclase and increases the amount of cyclic AMP in the cell, which proceeds to activate further enzymes of this reaction sequence. Neurochemical transmission is beheved to operate in this way. The neurotransmitter is the primary hormone and the cyclic AMP is intermediate in the process of depolarization of the postsynaptic membrane. Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) This coenzyme was known previously as diphosphopyridine nucleotide (DPN) and coenzyme 1.
