Storage component of glucose

Postby SWEngineer » Thu Feb 03, 2011 7:47 pm

I'm working on a pre-lab, and there is a question that asks about the storage component of glucose in "plants" and "mammals", any ideas on that?

Thanks.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

Would it be carbohydrates?

if it's glucose, than it must be carbohydrate. The question is, which one ;)

so, if I ask you, which car do you have, will you tell me that you have a car? :roll:

hint: it's a polysaccharide, which polysaccharides do you know?
And, please, do not write polysaccharides!
