BIO 400 Biological Chemistry

Stress on the central role of nucleic acids and proteins in living cells: biological oxidation and intermediary metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins, and the general properties of enzymes and enzyme catalyzed reactions in the intact cell and cell-free systems. Laboratory work stresses use of modern techniques used in biochemical analysis and in enzyme assays. Selected experiments to demonstrate the dynamic aspects of biochemistry in living cells and in cell-free systems.
