Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Subject builds on the knowledge of organic chemistry and biochemistry, focusing on organic chemistry major cell types biopolymers. At the molecular level, explains the structure of proteins, lipids, nucleic acids, biocatalysts. It studies the mechanisms of biochemical transformations in terms of organic chemistry.
Course contents:
Amino acids, peptides and proteins - structure and reactions. Enzymes - the structure, role in metabolism, enzyme catalysis. Fats and sugars in the body - structure, reaction. Cell energy processes at the molecular level - glycolysis, respiration nucleotides - chemical synthesis and biosynthesis. Nucleic acids - interaction of small molecules and nucleic acids. Nucleic acids - interaction of proteins and nucleic acids. Cocatalysts of enzyme reactions - types of structure and reaction mechanisms.
