Interactions with water molecules. Structure/function of DNA, RNA, proteins, lipids and carbohydrates. Enzyme kinetics and mechanisms. Enzyme cofactors and vitamins. Enzyme regulatory strategies. Cell structure, membranes and organelles. Protein biosynthesis and targeting to membranes and organelles. Glucose and O 2 production by photosynthesis in plant chloroplasts. Glucose oxidation and ATP production: glycolysis, citric acid cycle & oxidative phosphorylation. Ribose biosynthesis from glucose by pentose phosphate pathway. Mastery of these topics will provide students with a solid foundation in basic biochemical principles.
