Storyboard Text

  • To explain nucleic acids Doctor Hall. My bedroom stores hundreds of books, just like nucleic acids store genetic information. Unlike the other macromolecules, these consist of a nucleotide made of five carbon sugar, a phosphate group, and a nitrogen base. Nucleic acids are like the other macromolecules since they are made up of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, and phosphates. 
  • For goodness sake! Mr. Stone! Why are we in your bedroom?!
  • Well, there are a lot of proteins. but they consist of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, and sometimes sulfur. Proteins are made up of amino acids.
  • I admit that you are doing very well with explaining this and all, but what about proteins?
  • To explain to you the different types of proteins. The antibodies, muscle proteins, enzymes, hormones, structural, and transport. Each one is different, just like the people in the street, but they all have a specific job.
  • Here is a question for you Mr. Stone. Why did you bring me to the town.
  • The antibodies defend the body from pathogens, muscle proteins are responsible for movement, enzymes are biological catalysts, hormones are messenger proteins which help to coordinate certain bodily activities, structural are fibrous and stringy and provide support, and transport is carrier proteins, which move molecules from one place to another.
  • Hmmmmm...
  • I do have to admit that you have done a splendid job with explaining these macromolecules to me. You don't need to explain that macromolecules help the body carry out day-to-day functions or that macromolecules are giant molecules formed by the joining of smaller molecules, usually by a condensation reaction.
  • Do you understand macromolecules now Doctor Hall?
  • Well, that was your briefing, and I believe that is how long time will permit us
  • Quite right Mr. Stone. The Andromeda Strain doesn't stand a chance against the Wildfire project!
