Covalent linkage; dehydration synthesis (removal of H
: eg. disaccharide
Soluble/ easily digested
: E storage
Primary structural polysaccharide
β-glucose; 1,4 linkage
H bonds bet. chains form microfibrils
Links amino acids; N-terminus to C-terminus
Carboxyl group to amino group
: neutral fats & oils; storage

Cutin, suberin, waxes
Deposited in vacuole of cell wall
: deter herbivores; toxins
: cell wall; waterproofing, anti-fungal ex. anthocyanin
Undifferentiated cells, found in zones of the plant where growth can take place.
Give rise to various organs of the plant, and keep the plant growing.
Developmental and phenotypic plasticity.
