Expand to see important notes for this video. 1) This video, as stated in the description, focuses on general functions of biomolecules. The biomolecules: carbs, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids, can all can have important functions in the body. *This is a video about the general function of biomolecules. For your dietary needs, consult with a dietitian or medical doctor.* 2) We mention the popular CHO, CHO, CHON, CHONP mnemonic for major elements in the biomolecules. As we mention, these are basics. There can be more elements (such as sulfur for example in proteins), but we wanted to identify *common elements starting at the building block level.* At the building block level, *some amino acids lack sulfur* for example. It's not just sulfur. For example, there are lipids that can additionally contain phosphate or nitrogen. The popular CHO, CHO, CHON, CHONP mnemonic sticks with basic elements found even at the building block level. 3) Since this video only uses one character for carbohydrates, one character for lipids, and one character for proteins - unfortunately, when mentioning general functions of each biomolecule type, it isn't designed to show a specific type. We received a great point in an email though that, since our little lipid character is a triglyceride, this can be confusing when naming lipid functions. For example, at 3:52 in the video when saying lipids are part of the cell membrane, it would be much better if we do not show the little lipid character so there won't be any confusion as we do not want to imply that *specific* lipid type makes up the cell membrane. [Phospholipids are a major lipid type in the cell membrane although other types exist as well]. We plan to explore creating individual, detailed videos on lipids, carbs, and proteins where we can show different types.

Loved the mnemonic device at the end. CHO, CHO, CHON, CHONP!
Im in grade 7th and biochemistry is so interesting too bad science degrees are pretty useless on a bachelor's level🤷
update:I found out i could get a chemical engineering degree so ill become a biochemical engineer and it has biochemistry so
ice cream(specifically cookies and cream)
Yes, I'm certainly going to use this information in the future.
Forgets everything in the next school year
i have to watch this for science class and i usually don't like it but it is a good way to waste time in iss without getting in trouble
watxhing this 1 hr before my exam🤡
thank you so much
I have a question to ask
Why biomolecules called molecules of life?
hello, mr james.
You explained way better than my chem teacher lmao
I am watching as an entertainmeny
u forgot to add 1 thing about carbs. the monosaccharides are all the 'oses. like glucose, fructose galactose, etc.
iam doing pg n watching this
Your illustrations are so cute. I love the way you teach. Im studying biochemistry but i dont understand a thing its all structures which make things complicated
Omg i love this🥳
You’re the best ❤️❤️❤️
I really love this lovely channel 🥺it’s so sweet ,

I perfectly remember the example of Serine by reminding Mam's words, " Yeh toh Bewada hai ! "
Full chapter cover hai kya????
I am little confused in ncert book it has given that 21 types of ammino acids which make protein but mam you said 20
Can anyone clear my doubt
Full cover hai kya chapter
Mam ap chemistry bhi pada dijiye hame you are the best teacher forever ❤️🙏♥️♥️💮
Myy fav teacher.....luvv uhh mam....u r bsttt✨✨😊😊
Thank you mam jii bahut axa padae hai aap 👌🤞
Whole topic is covered ?
Very helpful lecture. You are an amazing teacher.
Mam I am in class 8th and i want to become doctor , I have seen most of your videos thank you for such a best guidance
Legends are watching in 2026
How can you remember all these things mam! Please do video remember tips par banaye. Please 🙏
Maam please make handwritten for these chapter ....your notes iss sooo sooo much needed now for these chapters
Online class kB chalti h timing batsiye Mam
Please suggest me a good physics teacher for vector chapter
Wow mam common ion ke concept se ab ache se samagh aya thanku🙏
