CHEM 354 - Biochemistry


Credit(s): 4
3 hours lecture, 3 hours lab
Prerequisite(s): BIOL 160 /BIOL 160A , BIOL 161 /BIOL 161A , CHEM 160 /CHEM 160A , CHEM 161 /CHEM 161A , CHEM 260 /CHEM 260A , and CHEM 261 /CHEM 261A .
A problem-solving approach to the study of macromolecular structure and function. Topics include the structure-function relationships of proteins, carbohydrates, nucleotides, and lipids; enzyme kinetics and mechanisms of enzyme-catalyzed reactions; bioenergetics, and the integration of cellular metabolism. Laboratory work introduces techniques of biochemical analysis, including protein assays, gel filtration chromatography, SDS polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, and enzyme kinetics. Computer-interface systems are used for data collection and analysis.
