  Macromolecule
Literally speaking, a macromolecule is a large molecule, and may be a protein, a lipid, a nucleic acid, or a polysaccharide (i.e., a starch).
Carbon nanotubes are macromolecules, as are the larger sheets of graphite.
A macromolecule may achieve its size through being a single polymeric chain, or it may be composed of multiple smaller units that are noncovalently bound.

 Macromolecule - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A macromolecule is a large molecule with a large molecular mass, but generally the use of the term is restricted to polymers and molecules which structurally include polymers.
The term macromolecule is also sometimes used to refer to aggregates of two or more macromolecules held together by intermolecular forces rather than by chemical "bonds".
According to IUPAC recommendations the term macromolecule is reserved for an individual molecule, and the term polymer is used as to denote a substance composed of macromolecules.

 A Comparison of the Macromolecule Content in Boiled Brassica oleracea versus Steamed Brassica oleracea
Macromolecule analysis was completed using Benedict’s, Barfoed’s, Selivanoff’s, Bial’s and Iodine test for carbohydrates, paper chromatography for photosynthetic pigment identification and the Bradford Assay for total protein concentration.
The water from the boiling process was also analyzed to either support or refute the hypothesis that macromolecule content of boiled broccoli would be lower then the content in steamed broccoli due to macromolecule loss to the water used in the boiling process (Bale, Amanda et al.).
What we can show is evidence of lost macromolecules as a result of the boiling process, as shown by the positive results in both the carbohydrate tests and the Bradford assay of the water from the boiling process.

The integral domains of crystals and metals, while composed of very large numbers of atoms joined by molecule-like bonds, are rarely referred to as "macromolecules." The term "macromolecule" is sometimes used to refer to aggregates of two or more macromolecules held together by intermolecular forces rather than by chemical bonds.

 Photochemical Internalization - A novel technology for improving macromolecule-based treatment   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
Macromolecules are widely acknowledged to have a large potential as therapeutic agents, and numerous clinical trials both with gene, protein and oligonucleotide therapy are underway.
Since most macromolecules are unable to pass directly through the cell membrane, inefficient delivery of macromolecules to the cell interior has constituted a severe obstacle for realising the therapeutic potential of large classes of macromolecules.
Although most macromolecules can be taken into the cell efficiently by the process of endocytosis, molecules taken up in this way will as a rule be trapped inside endocytic vesicles, finally being degraded in lysosomes before they have been able to exert a biological effect.

Approximately 30 macromolecule drugs are approved for marketing in the United States and approximately 120 additional macromolecule drugs are in human clinical trials, many for chronic and subchronic diseases.
In addition, Inhale believes that some macromolecules may be inactivated by nebulization and that many dry powder systems do not provide the protection needed for long-term stability that may be needed for macromolecule formulations.
Through its work with numerous macromolecules, Inhale is developing an extensive body of knowledge on aerosol dry powder formulations, including knowledge relating to powder flow characteristics and solubility within the lung, as well as physical and chemical properties of various excipients.

As a result, proteins and other macromolecules move more easily into tumors than normal tissue; the lack of a functioning lymphatic system around tumors also slows down clearance.
The authors stress that their results are not universally applicable, because individual properties of a macromolecule and the structure of the tumor tissue affect uptake and retention.
Still, their method could be used to optimize almost any macromolecule, including antibodies, cytokines, and antioangiogenic drugs.
