Considering this, how monosaccharides are converted into polysaccharides?
Monosaccharides are converted into disaccharides in the cell by condensation reactions. Further condensation reactions result in the formation of polysaccharides. These are broken down by hydrolysis into monosaccharides when energy is needed by the cell.
Also Know, which monosaccharides make up each disaccharide? It is a disaccharide (double-sugar) formed from one molecule each of the simple sugars (monosaccharides) fructose and galactose.
Similarly one may ask, how many monosaccharides make up an oligosaccharide?
Oligosaccharide, any carbohydrate of from three to six units of simple sugars (monosaccharides). A large number of oligosaccharides have been prepared by partially breaking down more complex carbohydrates (polysaccharides). Most of the few naturally occurring oligosaccharides are found in plants.
What are the 3 most common monosaccharides?
Polysaccharide. Explain a monosaccharide, and list the 3 most common monosaccharides. It's is called a simple sugar, so it is just one sugar. The three most common are glucose, which is blood sugars and fructose and galactose.
