CHE361 Biochemistry II

Lead Faculty: Dr. Dzung T. Nguyen

Course Description

A continuation of CHE 360. This course concentrates on the principles of cellular regulatory processes and synthesis of biological molecules.

Learning Outcomes

  • Explain how the metabolism of glucose leads ultimately to the generation of large quantities of ATP.
  • Describe how fats and amino acids are metabolized, and explain how they can be used for fuel.
  • Describe the structure of DNA, and explain how it carries genetic information in its base sequence.
  • Describe DNA replication.
  • Describe RNA and protein synthesis.
  • Explain how protein synthesis can be controlled at the level of transcription and translation.
  • Explain how the catabolism and anabolism of biomolecules are regulated.
