CHM-422. Advanced Inorganic Chemistry
CHM-461. Biochemistry I
This course is a study of the physical and chemical properties of proteins, nucleic acids, fatty acids and carbohydrates emphasizing the relationship between the chemical structure and the biological function. The course includes the physical methods of biochemistry, enzyme kinetics, bioenergetics and nucleic acid transcription and translation.
CHM-462. Biochemistry II
This course is a study of the catabolism and anabolism of carbohydrates, fatty acids and amino acids. The course emphasizes the regulation and integration of major metabolic pathways, including glycolysis, the Kreb's cycle, electron transport, gluconeogenesis, pentose phosphate, fatty acid metabolism and amino acid metabolism.
CHM-465. Medical Biochemistry
Introduction to basic biochemistry concepts, focusing on the structure and function of vitamins, proteins, and lipids as well as bioenergetics and major catabolic pathways. The catabolism of carbohydrates, fats and amino acids will be discussed including reactions and regulation. Common metabolic pathways of drugs, enzyme induction and metabolism down regulation will also be presented. Lecture: Four hours per week. Cross listed with BEGR-465
A study of topics of special interest not extensively treated in regularly offered courses.
