Biochemistry II (5 ECTS)

The course covers the fundamental aspects of eukaryotic gene transcription, the targeting of DNA repair mechanisms in cancer, the mechanisms of cell-cycle regulation and apoptosis, the role of hormones in mediating hormonal physiological outputs, the metabolic interrelationships between liver, adipose tissue, brain and skeletal muscles in the integration of metabolism.

Learning outcomes

Upon completion of the course, students shall be familiar with the cell signaling pathways in cancer, the hormone cascade pathways and the effector responses in a variety of hormonοregulated physiological processes and the metabolic interrelationships during feeding-starvation cycle, exercise and the metabolic integration in diabetes.
