Molecular Chaperones and Cellular Protein Homeostasis

BCH 2124H

In this course, different molecular chaperone families will be discussed in detail. The structure and mechanism of function of these chaperones will be described and their cellular functions will be examined.

Drop date: Students are not permitted to drop a 0.25 credit course if more than one class has been completed without approval of the course coordinator.

Method of Student Evaluation

1. Participation 10%
2. Student presentation 30%
3. Written research proposal report 60%

In the first lecture, I will give an overview of the prokaryotic molecular chaperones. Subsequently, 2 students will present in each session on eukaryotic chaperones of a given family and lead a discussion of the papers. All students read the papers. The last 10 minutes of the class will be dedicated to the evaluation of the presenters by their fellow students.
