CHEM 330 - Biochemistry II

(3 cr) Basic concepts of intermediary metabolism with initial emphasis placed on the broad aspects of metabolism and includes a discussion of the energy requirements for reactions in living systems. The degradation of carbohydrates and the biochemical role of glycolysis, citric acid cycle, oxidative phosphorylation, and related pathways are then presented. This is followed by an examination of fatty acid metabolism, nucleotide biochemistry, and selected topics in biosynthesis. Attention is then given to mechanisms of hormone action, transport across biological membranes, and related membrane activity. The synthesis of proteins, control of translation, and post-translational processing is discussed in depth. Prerequisites: CHEM 329 .
