Prerequisite: BMD269 (SBC920)

In the first part this module will cover the processes of protein biosynthesis, folding and degradation, and assembly of large macromolecular complexes, as well as structure and function of the macromolecular complexes that are involved in these processes. These complexes include the nucleosome, the ribosome, chaperonins and the proteasome. The module will also cover the relationships between misfolding, formation of amyloid fibres and human disease. In the second part our present knowledge about structure and function of the following macromolecular assemblies will be presented: collagen, muscle proteins, and fatty acid synthase, as well as the different types of viruses.
