Metabolic Biochemistry BIBC 102 Fall Quarter, 2008 Instructor: Aaron Coleman, Ph.D. Humanities and Social Sciences Building, room 1145G Office Hours: Mon 2-3 PM, Tues 10-11 AM, Weds 11-12 PM. Course Text: D.L. Nelson and M.M. Cox Lehninger-Principles of Biochemistry , 5 th Edition Freeman, 2008 (ISBN# 0-7167-7108-X) Course Objectives: This course will examine the concepts of energy and metabolism, and how they are harnessed and regulated at the cellular and molecular level. We will start by looking in detail at the action of enzymes. We will examine the kinetics of enzyme-catalyzed reactions, the chemical mechanisms through which enzymes produce catalysis, and the regulation of catalytic activity. The remainder of the quarter will focus on metabolism, the various pathways by which biological molecules are broken down to provide energy for the cell, and by which new biological molecules are synthesized. In our study of metabolism we will try to understand how energy flows and is utilized by the cell,
