GS13 1024 Molecular Basis of Cell Signaling
- Course Director(s): Guangwei Du
- Semester: Spring
- Frequency: Annually
- Credit Hours: 4
- Grading System: Letter Grade
- Prerequisites: Background in biochemistry and cell biology; Consent of instructor.
This course provides a detailed exploration of the molecular basis of cell signaling with emphasis on recent developments, structure-function, and quantitation. The course will include both the regulation of second messenger systems (GPCRs, G proteins, cAMP, IP3 and lipid), ion channels, growth factor-regulated tyrosine kinases, small G proteins (ras, GEFs, Gaps), kinase/phosphatase pathways, steroid hormones/transcription, and the modeling of these systems.
