PROTEIN STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION
Country - Partner Institution - Programs: Australia - University of Melbourne - 'Australian Universities'
UC Course SubjectBioengineering
Number & Suffix: 112
Full UC Title: PROTEIN STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION 
Transcript Title: PROTEIN STRUCTURE 
UC QTR Units - Division: 6.0 - Upper Division 
Course Description: This course examines wide range of structures, functions, and interactions of proteins and their importance in biological processes, biomedicine, and biotechnology. It emphasizes the three-dimensional structure of proteins and their interactions with peptides, proteins, lipids, nucleic acids, and other physiologically important molecules. Students describe experimental and computational techniques and how they help in determining and predicting protein structure and function, aid the design of new proteins, and are used to develop new drugs. The course covers the general properties of protein structure; the major classes and topologies of proteins; evolution of sequence, structure, and function; protein synthesis, folding, misfolding, targeting, and trafficking; protein engineering for biotechnology; bioinformatics analysis of protein sequence and structure; binding of small molecules to proteins and drug design; protein-protein interactions; effects of mutations on tertiary structure, protein stability, and biological functions; and enzyme reaction kinetics and mechanisms.
