BIO 406: Biochemistry of Differentiation.
3 hours, 3 credits. The regulatory mechanisms controlling the changing of cells from a pre-existing condition to one of increased complexity and specialization will be considered. Evidence for biochemical interaction between the nucleus and cytoplasm in normal, hybrid, and cancer cells will be presented, and hypotheses suggested by specific experiments discussed. PREREQ: BIO 238, one other BIO course, and CHE 234-235.
