(Prerequisites: CHEM 233 )
Structure-function relationships with emphasis on the organic and biophysical characteristics of proteins, lipids and carbohydrates are described. Enzyme mechanisms and kinetics and the thermodynamic basis of intermediary metabolism are major themes. Three hours lecture. CHEM 450L is required of Biochemistry majors. Successful completion of CHEM 450 precludes credit for CHEM 350 .
