Question:

Describe the structures of fatty acids, triglycerides, phospholipids, and steroids. Explain the functions of lipids in living organisms. Identify some reaction?

Answer:

Fatty acids play a key role in metabolism: as a metabolic fuel, as a necessary component of all membranes, and as a gene regulator. In addition, fatty acids have a number of industrial uses. Triglycerides are formed by combining glycerol with three molecules of fatty acid. Alcohols have a hydroxyl (HO-) group. The phospholipid molecule is made up a head and 2 tails.
