Good morning, how is everyone today????
i am in abit of a pickle i have to do my biology homework - its on molecules (water and carbohydrates) and i dont have a clue?!?!?!?

does anyone know the answer to this: Give examples of hydrogen bond formation contributing to the structure of molecules.

thank u xxx

Hydrogen bonds -
-Base paring in DNA (although it isn't resonsible for the double-helix shape, it stabilises it)
-Stabilises secondary and tertiary protein structure
-Occurs in water - which has important implications in biology

It kind of turns water into a macromolecue (although it is definitely not) and the H-bonding enables it to exert adhesive and cohesive forces (these enable plants to transport water in the xylem). There is other stuff as well...
