PubChem

Glucose, a sugar made by photosynthesis.

PubChem

Sucrose is a sugar.  It's a disaccharide because it contains two subunits.

PubChem

Amylose–a polymer of D-glucose and a component of starch

PubChem

Butyric acid is a short chain fatty acid.

PubChem

Oleic acid is a fatty acid.

PubChem

ATP or Adenosine Triphosphate is used for storing energy.

PubChem

dATP or deoxy Adenosine Triphosphate is a nucleotide.  The deoxy form of the ribose is the form that's found in DNA.

PubChem

TTP or Thymidine Triphosphate is a nucleotide. The thymine base is used in DNA in place of uracil.

PubChem

UTP or Uracil Triphosphate is a nucleotide. Uracil is found in RNA instead of Thymine.

PubChem

L-methionine, an amino acid

PubChem

L-glutamic acid, an amino acid

MMDB

This protein is a snake toxin with phospholipase activity.  

This structure shows hydrogens because it was obtained by NMR.

MMDB

This structure is a tRNA that specifies phenylalanine.

MMDB

A short chain of double-stranded DNA showing hydrogens. Hydrogens are present because this structure was solved by NMR.
