Regulatory and integrative aspects of biochemical processes at the cellular level that contribute to the general and specialized functions of living cells. Representative areas include the cell and its organelles, energy metabolism, and cellular redox potentials; bioelectric phenomena; protein structure and specificity and its relation to cellular differentiations; and membrane structure and transport processes. Lab will include work with intact and cell-free systems to demonstrate physiological and biochemical properties of living cells as well as model systems to demonstrate principles.
