Learning outcomes 

Upon successful completion students are able to:

  • tell the relevance of protein structure, including post-translational modification, to protein function
  • describe the techniques available to purify proteins and to study protein function and have an appreciation of the applications and limitations of these techniques
  • analyze a wide range of biochemical data and solve problems relating to the interpretation of data concerning protein function and basic structural characterization
 
Contents 

This module provides more detailed information on the chemistry of proteins. Topics covered include protein purification, reversible and irreversible covalent modifications of proteins, protein translocation, protein degradation, an introduction to the protein folding problem, protein structure analysis, basic enzyme catalysis mechanisms and co-enzymes. The module includes lectures, continuous assessments, group works, student presentations, and laboratory exercises. Final examination, lecture attendance/ continuous assessments, presentations and laboratory reports will all count towards the final mark. Attendance at laboratory exercises is obligatory.
