Sugars: Glucose and the Carbohydrates
Lecture no. 10 from the course: Biochemistry and Molecular Biology: How Life Works
Taught by Professor Kevin Ahern | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Probe the biochemistry of sugars that provide us with instant energy, feed our brains, direct proteins to their destinations, and communicate the identity of our cells. On the other hand, when present in large quantities they can lead to Type 2 diabetes, and the wrong sugar markers on transfused blood cells can even kill us.
