Learning Outcomes
Most of the reaction in the living systems (see Biochemistry) can not function without the interference of enzymes. By the end of this course the students will know: a) the nature, quantitative determination, purification, isolation and specificity of the enzymes b) the mechanisms and kinetic of enzyme reactions as well as the factors that affect them, and c) the regulation of biosynthesis and activity.
General Competences
  • Apply knowledge in practice
