MOL BIOLOGY AND BIOCHEMISTRY-PROTEINS
Country - Partner Institution - Programs: Australia - University of Sydney - 'Australian Universities'
UC Course SubjectBiochemistry
Number & Suffix: 106
Full UC Title: MOL BIOLOGY AND BIOCHEMISTRY-PROTEINS 
Transcript Title: MOLEC BIOL-PROTEINS 
UC QTR Units - Division: 6.0 - Upper Division 
Course Description: This course provides comprehensive coverage of the functions of proteins in living organisms, with a focus on eukaryotic and human systems. It examines how proteins adopt their biologically active forms, including discussions of protein structure, protein folding, and how recombinant DNA technology can be used to design novel proteins with potential medical or biotechnology applications. Particular emphasis is placed on how modern molecular biology and biochemical methods have led to our current understanding of the structure and functions of proteins. It also covers physiologically and medically important aspects of proteins in living systems, including the roles of chaperones in protein folding inside cells; the pathological consequences of misfolding of proteins; how proteins are sorted to different cellular compartments; and how the biological activities of proteins can be controlled by regulated protein degradation.
