Discussion of all aspects of cellular structure, physiology and communication.
Did you know that macromolecules according to ACS (chemists) can consist of molecules put together without covalent bonds? If you were to look at a chylomicrons (a huge aggregate of lipids from the diet), you would postulate that they are macromolecules: repeating units of lipids that are held together, not covently bonded, with vander Waals forces.
All polymers are macromolecules, but not all macromolecules are polymers.
guys, is this really important? Who the hell cares what you call a macromolecule and what you don't call a macromolecule?
