Section 9-D, “The Secretory Pathway” (pp. 272 – 285); Section 10-3-B, “The CalciumATPase” (pp. 306 – 308); and Section 12-2-B and C “Uncompetitive and Mixed Enzyme
Inhibition” (pp. 374 – 376).
Required Prerequisites: TTU CHEM 3105, 3106, 3305 and 3306, BIOL 1401and 1402
or 1403 and 1404, or their equivalents. These courses are absolutely necessary
prerequisites. If any student has any questions about the adequacy of his/her background,
they should consult Prof. Knaff no later than the second meeting of the class.
Learning Outcome: The fully prepared student will: Understand the First and Second
Laws of Thermodynamics and how they can be applied to biological systems; be familiar
with acid-base properties of biomolecules and be able to calculate quantities such as pKa
values and isoelectric points; be fully familiar with the structure and chemical properties
of all of the basic biomolecules (i.e., sugars, amino acids, nucleotides and nucleosides,
lipids, and amino acids); understand the role of phospholipids as structural elements in
biological membranes and the properties of proteins associated with these membranes; be
familiar with the chemical principles involved in the assembly, from simpler precursors,
of biological macromolecules (e.g., oligo- and polysaccharides, DNA and proteins);
understand the chemical principles involved in sequencing DNA and proteins; understand
how myoglobin and hemoglobin function as oxygen-binding proteins; be familiar with
the principles of chemical kinetics and transition-state theory; be familiar with the most
common ways in which enzymes catalyze reactions; understand the principles of allosteric regulation of enzyme activity; and...
