Outline and Purpose of the Course This course is to learn current concepts in Cellular Biochemistry with an emphasis on experimental approaches. Topics include the molecular basis of cell adhesion, differentiation, mechanosensing/mechanotransduction, transporters, and lipid homeostasis.
Course Goals Understanding current concepts in cellular biochemistry with an emphasis on experimental approaches.
Schedule and Contents The course includes both experiments and small group discussions, designed to give students deeper insights into particular topics of current interest. Topics include cell adhesion to extracellular matrix, which regulates cell proliferation, survival, differentiation, migration, and mechanosensing/mechanotransduction through cell adhesion molecules, and ABC proteins, which are involved in protecting our health by transporting various xenobiotics and endogenous lipids.
Evaluation Methods and Policy Based on contents and clarity of presentation, and class participation.
Refer to current year's 'Guide to Degree Programs' for attainment levels of evaluation.
Course Requirements Fundamental biochemistry studied in the bachelor course should be confirmed.
Study outside of Class (preparation and review) Pre-study and post-study should be carried out.
