BIOLCHEM 452 — Introduction to Biochemistry II
Section 100, LEC

Instructor: Ninfa,Alexander J
Instructor: Lei,Ming
Instructor: Kerppola,Tom K W

WN 2007
Credits: 4

CHEM 452 is the second of a two-term introduction to modern biochemistry. The course focuses on the chemical basis underlying a host of cellular events involving macromolecules such as proteins, nucleic acids, lipids, and glycoconjugates, in addition to small molecules such as vitamins, amino acids and carbohydrates.

Advisory Prerequisite: CHEM 451.

BIOLCHEM 499 — Biochemical Research for Undergraduates: Laboratory
Section 001, IND

WN 2007
Credits: 1 — 6
Other: INDEPENDENT

This course provides an opportunity for students to develop a special research project under the direct supervision of a department faculty member.

Advisory Prerequisite: BIOLCHEM 415 or 451/452; permission of the course director.

BIOLCHEM 502 — Chemical Biology II
Section 001, SEM

Instructor: Mapp,Anna K; homepage
Instructor: Gestwicki,Jason Edward
Instructor: Smith,William L

WN 2007
Credits: 3
Reqs: BS

This course is a continuation of CHEMBIO 501. The basic concepts obtained in CHEMBIO 501 will be applied to and demonstrated in three broad areas of interest to both chemists and biologists. The first topic will discuss combinatorial methods including SELEX and gene shuffling, combinatorial organic synthesis, high throughput screening and chemical genetics. The second topic will focus on signal transduction, emphasizing general concepts (at the molecular level) and how small molecules have been used to probe and modulate signal transduction pathways. The final topic will cover protein translation, stressing mechanistic aspects of protein synthesis and folding in vivo.

BIOLCHEM 504 — Cell Biotech
Section 001, LEC

Instructor: Vojtek,Anne B

WN 2007
Credits: 3
Reqs: BS

Provides an overview and integration of six disciplinary foci which, together, define the field of cellular biotechnology. These foci are: cell biology and culture ecology; ; evolution molecular genetics and protein engineering; bioseparation and processing; biosensing and analysis; and cellular modeling, prediction, and control. Course begins with an overview of a typical situation encountered in the field, such as a toxic spill, production of a recombinant protein, or development of a diagnostic tool, followed by a series of lectures in the six topics. Emphasis will be placed not only on conveying knowledge of basic principles in each area, but also on illustrating the necessary relationships and interactions between the various areas within the context of the integrated biotechnology process.

BIOLCHEM 576 — Signal Transduction
Section 001, LEC
Meets Jan 4 thru Feb 5. (Drop/Add deadline=Jan. 24).

Instructor: Fisher,Stephen K
Instructor: Carter-Su,Christin
Instructor: Guan,Kunliang

WN 2007
Credits: 1
Other: Minicourse

A review of hormone and neurotransmitter receptors as well as the cellular effectors that are regulated by receptor activation. Oncogene products as signal transducers and the interaction of the known signaling pathways are also covered. The various techniques used to study signal transduction as well as important experimental strategies employing these techniques will also be presented. Lecture.

Advisory Prerequisite: Two terms of organic chemistry; BIOLCHEM 415 or 451/452. Physical Chemistry is strongly recommended.

BIOLCHEM 631 — Genetic Program Student Seminar
Section 001, SEM

Instructor: Moran,John V; homepage

WN 2007
Credits: 1

Selected topics in human genetics, presentations by students.

Advisory Prerequisite: Graduate standing and permission of instructor.

BIOLCHEM 640 — Post-transcriptional Gene Regulation
Section 001, LEC

Instructor: Turner,David L
Instructor: Goldman,Daniel J

WN 2007
Credits: 2

A discussion based course that will cover the mechanisms and the biological roles of post-transcriptional gene regulation in eukaryotes. Topics will include RNA interference, microRNAs, regulated polyadenylation, subcellular regulation of translation, and others. The class will focus on reading and discussion of the recent literature, but topics will be introduced by short lectures.

BIOLCHEM 650 — Mechanisms of Eukaryotic Gene Expression
Section 001, LEC

Instructor: Trievel,Raymond C
Instructor: Bochar,Daniel A

WN 2007
Credits: 3

Topics will cover eukaryotic RNA polymerases, general transcriptional factors, mechanisms of transcriptional regulation, and chromatin structure and modification/remodeling. An emphasis will be placed on structural aspects of transcription and polymerase function. The course will be taught through a combination of lectures and discussions of current literature.

Advisory Prerequisite: Biological Chemistry 550 or permission of instructor.

BIOLCHEM 673 — Kinetics and Mechanism
Section 001, LEC

Instructor: Palfey,Bruce Allan

WN 2007
Credits: 3

Comprehensive treatment of thermodynamic and kinetic aspects of the binding of ligands to macromolecules, the use of rapid reaction techniques in the elucidation of enzyme reaction mechanisms, steady-state catalysis, and isotope effects.

Advisory Prerequisite: CHEM,BIOLCHEM 550 or equiv., Physical Chemistry is recommended
