CHEM 737/7370 - Enzymes

Semester: Spring 2021 Professor: J. Honek | Discipline: Biochemistry | Campus: Waterloo
This graduate course will address the underlying principles of enzymatic catalysis (with examples) along with discussion of techniques that are applied to this area. This course will focus on the protein itself and how its structure contributes to catalysis. Subtopics will include protein dynamics, electrostatic potential, active-site geometry and transition state stabilization among other factors that contribute to enzyme catalysis and substrate selectivity. The chemical mechanism of ...
