BMB-301: Metabolism of Nitrogenous Compounds

The overarching goal of BMB-301 is to familiarize the students with the physiological pathways of how building blocks of proteins and nucleic acids are synthesized and degraded to maintain cell division, growth and health. Also to understand adaptation of cellular metabolisms and interorgan relationships during different states. This course will require dedicated, focused class attendance and concentration, along with diligent study of course materials. Successful completion of the course will allow understanding:

Metabolisms of amino acids, nucleotides, heme, and their regulation. The biochemistry involved in the regulation of cellular metabolism and common inborn errors of metabolism. Metabolic interrelationships at different states of the body. Clinical correlations of metabolic disorders and their significance.
