Protein Biogenesis, Function and Degradation MBB 743 (3)

The central dogma of molecular biology (DNA to RNA to protein) underscores two fundamental biological processes, transcription and translation, that are essential to life. Protein biogenesis (folding, assembly, targeting to the proper cellular compartment), protein modification and protein degradation represent three other equally important cellular activities. The emphasis in this course will be to review the literature on protein biogenesis, function, and degradation, and explore the new and exciting developments that are just starting to uncover how mechanistically complex these processes are.
