Biochemistry I (5 ECTS)

Biochemistry 1 covers the fundamentals of the role and action of enzymes (catalytic theory, mechanisms of catalysis, Michaelis-Menten equation, types of inhibition, coenzymes and cofactors, allosteric enzymes), the metabolic pathways of carbohydrates, lipids, amino acids, proteins and nucleotides (purines and pyrimidines), the hormonal regulation of the metabolic pathways and the molecular mechanisms underlying related diseases and their treatment.

Learning outcomes

At the end of the course, students will be able to understand the mechanisms of energy production, the regulation of the reactions, as well as the consequences of any deficiencies.
