|Title:||The Molecular Basis of Cellular Regulation|
|Division:||Division of Biosciences|
|Module organiser:||Dr A Townsend-Nicholson|
|Organiser's location:||Dept of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology|
|Available for students in Year(s):||4,|
|Module prerequisites:||Bioc1007 and Biochemistry 2005 or a brief interview with the module organiser|
|Module outline:||Specific topics that will be covered include second messengers, phosphorylation, trafficking and examples of the regulation of these in health and disease states.|
|Module aims:||To provide an appreciation of our current state of knowledge of signalling and regulatory mechanisms in intact cells and tissues and how these are altered either through genetic engineering or in disease states; to provide an insight into the experimental strategies and techniques currently in use; to develop and refine analytical and critical reasoning skills; and, to develop expertise in the writing and presentation skills that required by employers.|
|Module objectives:||Objectives. To hold lectures and workshops and provide specific reading lists of references to help develop an understanding of the field of cellular regulation in normal and pathophysiological disease states and to examine current examples of its biotechnology applications. Specific topics include second messengers, phosphorylation, trafficking and examples of the regulation of these in health and disease states.|
