BIO 404: Plant Biochemistry.
6 hours (2, lecture; 4, lab), 4 credits. Biochemical activities of plants, including photosynthesis, respiratory pathways, sulfate and nitrate reduction, and cell-wall metabolism will be discussed. The biosynthesis by plants of drugs of pharmacological significance such as alkaloids and vitamins will also be considered. Laboratory work will include techniques for fractionating plant cells and isolating intermediates and products' metabolic pathways. PREREQ: Two additional BIO courses and CHE 234-235.
