Course Description

410.604 - Advanced Cell Biology II

This course is a continuation of 410.603 Advanced Cell Biology and further explores cell organization and subcellular structure Students examine cell-to-cell signaling that involves hormone and receptors, signal transduction pathways, second messenger molecules, cell adhesion, extracellular matrix, cell cycle, programmed cell death, methylation of DNA and modification of chromatic structure, and mechanisms of the cell. The involvement of abnormalities in signal transduction pathway to oncogenes is and other disease states will be stressed. Prerequisites: 410.601 Biochemistry, 410.602 Molecular Biology, 410.603 Advanced Cell Biology I. S
