Learning Objectives

The learning objectives of the course of Biochemistry are all related to the introduction of the students to the world of proteins, sugars, lipids, nucleotides, coenzymes and vitamins.
Special attention will be payd to the relationships among structure
and functions of proteins especially when these have an enzymatic
activity or participate in a regulatory process.
The next section will be related to cell metabolism and its
regulation. It is expected that the student become familiar also with
the molecular bases of integration of cell metabolic regulation with
the action of extracellular signals (i.e. hormons) under different
physiological and pathological conditions.
