Biochemistry II: Metabolism (2 hr lecture)

  • College of Pharmacy |


The course introduces the aspects of mammalian biochemistry and metabolism. It discusses the biochemical processes pertinent to carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleotides, as well as any related abnormalities and potential sites for medication action. The scientific basis of these processes is provided at the molecular level enabling the students to begin to understand the pathophysiological basis of metabolic disorders. ATP synthesis from reduced metabolites (electron transport chain- inhibitors- uncouplers). Regulation of blood glucose level and clinical correlations, Inborn errors of metabolism, Second messengers and signal transduction. Biochemistry of cancer and oxidative stress and body defense mechanisms.
