Syllabus:

BIOCHEM 2503 uses the knowledge and understanding gained in the prerequisite Level I courses (see below) to provide students with an appreciation and an understanding of key metabolic biochemistry and molecular biology concepts. The topics covered include signal transduction pathways, tissue specific metabolism and its control, enzyme specificity and regulation for important metabolic pathways, how the body adjusts to variations in the demand for energy, mechanisms of hormone action and extensions of the signal transduction pathways covered at the beginning of the semester. The course combines lectures, tutorials that reinforce the lecture content, and practicals complement this material. This practical component draws from the MBS Practical series: Prac A, Prac B and Prac C.
