Courses: Inter- and Intra-Cellular Communication (BIOLH306E01)

Fall 2008

A study of the mechanisms by which individual cells in a multicellular organism communicate via the exchange of molecular signals. The course will focus on the release of molecular messengers, their interactions with specific receptor-bearing target cells of appropriate responses such as increased metabolic activity and/or cell division. Considerable attention is paid to the biochemistry of plasma and internal cell membranes and pathways are discussed from a disease perspective.

Prerequisites: Biology 200 or its equivalent or consent of instructor.
