InhaltDas Hauptaugenmerk liegt auf der Biologie von Säugerzellen und der Entwicklung multizellulärer Organismen mit Schwerpunkt auf molekularen Mechanismen, die zellulären Strukturen und Phänomenen zugrunde liegen. Die behandelten Themen umfassen biologische Membranen, das Zytoskelett, Protein Sorting, Energiemetabolismus, Zellzyklus und Zellteilung, Viren, die extrazelluläre Matrix, Signaltransduktion, Entwicklungsbiologie und Krebsforschung.
SkriptDie Vorlesungsinhalte werden mithilfe von Powerpoint präsentiert. Die Präsentationen können von ETH Studenten heruntergeladen werden (Moodle). Ausgewählte Vorlesungen können auf dem ETH Netz im live Format (Livestream) angehört werden.

551-0319-00LCellular Biochemistry (Part I) Information 3 KP2VU. Kutay, Q. Feng, M. Peter, K. Weis, I. Zemp
KurzbeschreibungConcepts and molecular mechanisms underlying the biochemistry of the cell, providing advanced insights into structure, function and regulation of individual cell components. Particular emphasis will be put on the spatial and temporal integration of different molecules and signaling pathways into global cellular processes such as intracellular transport, cell division & growth, and cell migration.
LernzielThe full-year course (551-0319-00 & 551-0320-00) focuses on the molecular mechanisms and concepts underlying the biochemistry of cellular physiology, investigating how these processes are integrated to carry out highly coordinated cellular functions. The molecular characterisation of complex cellular functions requires a combination of approaches such as biochemistry, but also cell biology and genetics. This course is therefore the occasion to discuss these techniques and their integration in modern cellular biochemistry.
The students will be able to describe the structural and functional details of individual cell components, and the spatial and temporal regulation of their interactions. In particular, they will learn to explain the integration of different molecules and signaling pathways into complex and highly dynamic cellular processes such as intracellular transport, cytoskeletal rearrangements, cell motility, cell division and cell growth. In addition, they will be able to illustrate the relevance of particular signaling pathways for cellular pathologies such as cancer.
InhaltStructural and functional details of individual cell components, regulation of their interactions, and various aspects of the regulation and compartmentalisation of biochemical processes.
Topics include: biophysical and electrical properties of membranes; viral membranes; structural and functional insights into intracellular transport and targeting; vesicular trafficking and phagocytosis; post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression.
SkriptScripts and additional material will be provided during the semester. Please contact Dr. Alicia Smith for assistance with the learning materials. (alicia.smith@bc.biol.ethz.ch)
LiteraturRecommended supplementary literature (review articles and selected primary literature) will be provided during the course.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesTo attend this course the students must have a solid basic knowledge in chemistry, biochemistry and general biology. The course will be taught in English.

KurzbeschreibungStudents will learn about biochemical approaches to analyze cellular functions. The course consists of practical projects in small groups, lectures and literature discussions. The course concludes with the presentation of results at a poster session.
LernzielStudents will learn to design, carry out and assess experiments using current biochemical and cell biological strategies to analyze cellular functions in model systems. In particular they will learn novel imaging techniques along with biochemical approaches to understand fundamental cellular pathways. Furthermore, they will learn to assess strengths and limitations of the different approaches and be able to discuss their validity for the analysis of cellular functions.
LiteraturDocumentation and recommended literature (review articles and selected primary literature) will be provided during the course.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesThis course will be taught in English.
