SYLLABUS for CHEMISTRY 365 BIOCHEMISTRY Spring 2004 INSTRUCTOR Dr. Thomas M. Zamis I. Course Description A. Biochemistry (Prerequisites: Chem 248, 326, 328) Introduction to Biochemistry includes the chemistry of living cell components, and the nature and mechanism of cellular reactions. The chemical structures and biological functions of the most common small biomolecules, molecular assemblies and polymers of living organisms - including carbohydrates, proteins (enzymes), lipids, nucleic acids, coenzymes, and intermediate metabolites are covered. The reaction mechanisms, enzyme catalysts and regulation of the fundamental metabolic pathways are discussed - including glycogenesis, glycogenolysis, gluconeogenesis, glycolysis, the pentose phosphate pathway, fatty acid metabolism, the citric acid cycle, the electron transport system, oxidative phosphorylation, amino acid metabolism, the urea cycle and nucleotide metabolism. Biological information flow is outlined - including DNA replication and repair; RNA transcription, processing and control of gene expression; and protein biosynthesis. The focus of the laboratory portion of the course is on techniques for analysis of small biomolecule mixtures, biopolymer characterization, and enzyme isolation and kinetic analysis. Techniques include computer spreadsheet and word processing, uv-vis and colorimetric spectrophotometry, thin layer chromatography, gel permeation chromatography, gas- liquid chromatography, specific activity and kinetic assay, and electrophoresis.
