Graduate Courses

16:115:501(F) Biochemistry (3) Modern concepts of protein biochemistry and metabolism for first-year Ph.D. students. Winkelmann. Prerequisite: One year organic chemistry. Corequisite: 16:115:502.
16:115:502(F) Biochemistry (Molecular Biology) (3) Modern concepts of nucleic acid biochemistry and metabolism for first-year Ph.D. students. Inouye. Prerequisite: One year organic chemistry. Corequisite: 16:115:501.
16:115:508(S) Proteins and Enzymes (3) Assay and purification of enzymes and other proteins. Kinetics, chemical modification, and site-directed mutagenesis as tools in understanding structure-function relationships and enzyme mechanisms. Selected examples of posttranslational modification. General theories and specific examples of the chemical basis of enzymic catalysis. Chase. Prerequisite: 16:115:501 or equivalent.
16:115:511,512(F) Molecular Biology and Biochemistry (3,3) First term: structure and function of proteins, nucleic acid structure, catalysis of biochemical reactions, glycolysis, oxidative phosphorylation. Recombinant DNA approaches, DNA replication, mutability, recombination, repair, and transposition. Second term: transcription, posttranscriptional processing, translation, gene regulation, photosynthesis, properties of membranes, signal transduction, intermediary metabolism. Prerequisite: One year organic chemistry. These courses recommended for students outside the program in biochemistry.
16:115:533(F) Physical Biochemistry (3) Protein folding used as theme to discuss principles of physical chemistry of macromolecules of biochemical importance. Specific aspects of thermodynamics and kinetics are related to biopolymers. Spectroscopic techniques, including circular dichroism, as well as other biophysical methods. Kahn. Prerequisites: Biochemistry, physical chemistry.
16:115:552Biochemical Separations (3) Basic theory and practice of separating biological molecules. Methods include chromatography, centrifugation, electro- phoresis, ultrafiltration, and general methods of extraction and purification of proteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates, and other biological molecules.
