Seminar: Cellular Biochemistry
Summer Semester. Thursday, 5 pm. Room 13-443
A literature course covering a wide-range of the latest cell biology research with an underlying theme of cell metabolism and the increasingly realised importance of metabolic regulation in cell and organism health and disease. Our reading material is sourced from recent reviews and original articles in the best journals including Science, Nature and Cell.
For Biosciences, Biophysics or Chemistry students. Bachelor (semester 5 or 6) or Master.
Basic knowledge of molecular cell biology is required.
Preliminary seminar (Vorbesprechung) and topic selection: in 13-443- April 19th, 2018
Start seminar: Room 13-443 - April 19th, 2018
1 Mitochondrial machineries for protein import and assembly
2 MitoCPR- A surveillance pathway that protects mitochondria in response to protein import stress
3 Role of the mitochondrial contact site and cristae organizing system in membrane architecture dynamics
4 Central role of Mic10 in the mitochondrial contact site and cristae organizing system
5 The mitochondrial respiratory chain
6 Structure of a complete ATP synthase dimer reveals the molecular basis of inner mitochondrial
7 Complementation of mitochondrial electron transport chain by manipulation of the NAD-NADH ratio
8 Functional metabolomics describes the yeast biosynthetic regulome
9 The conundrum of H2O2 signaling and the emerging role of peroxiredoxins as redox relay hubs
10 A role for 2-cys peroxiredoxins in facilitating cytosolic protein thiol oxidation
11 Glutathione revisited- a vital function in iron metabolism and ancillary role in thiol-redox control
12 Multiple glutathione disulfide removal pathways mediate cytosolic redox homeostasis
13 Endoplasmic reticulum transport of glutathione by Sec61 is regulated by Ero1 and Bip1
14 Cellular timekeeping- it's redox o' clock
15 Peroxiredoxins are conserved markers of circadian rhythms
16 Real-time monitoring of basal H2O2 levels with peroxiredoxin-based probes
The practical course “Molecular Biology” for first year students (GM4) takes place after the winter term. It is a two week course of which the first week is arranged by the divisions of Cellular Biochemistry and Cellular Biology. Please sign up for this course in the KIS system. If you have questions, please contact me by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Further practical courses (AP, VP) are performed together with the division of Cellular Biology (Prof. Johannes Herrmann). Participation in at least one of the three-week practical courses (Winter Term and/or Summer Term) also is a prerequisite for a research practical, bachelor or master theses in our laboratory.
Next practical courses:
- GM4 - Teil Zellbiologie: 03.04.2017 - 07.04.2017 in den Räumen 13-322 und 13-347
