This course describes the biochemical pathways by which carbohydrates, proteins and lipids are synthesized and catabolized. It also describes the many importance and regulation of metabolism for these classes of molecules. It deals with the amino acids and their general fates and describes certain types of protein catabolism. It explains the nucleotides metabolism, Purine and pyrimidine metabolism: Purine biosynthesis, catabolism and its disordered.
Measure-milk component blood parameters, urine analysis.
Course Objectives & Outcomes
- Distinguish between digestion, anabolism, and catabolism.
- Outline the different pathways for metabolism of carbohydrates, protein and lipid.
- Learn the different ways of anabolism and catabolism of nucleic acids and its synthesis and repair.
- Calculate the energy outcome from both carbohydrates and fats catabolism.
- Awareness with health and food for the students to rise by the end of the course and become able to discuss health problems resulting from metabolism balances in the light of what has been studied.
- Recognize the importance and control of metabolic pathways of carbohydrates, lipid and proteins.
- Outline the pharmacological, pathological and nutritive function provided from the pathways of metabolism of different biomolecules.
At the end of this course, the students will be able to:
- Enumerate the different biochemical reactions of carbohydrates, fats, protein and nucleic acid metabolism.
- Listthe different types of amino acids metabolism
- Describe the reactions, importance and regulation of carbohydrate, proteins and lipid metabolism
- Interpret and distinguish the metabolic pathways of carbohydrates, proteins and lipid
