CHEM 6860 - Physical Chemistry of Proteins

Fall. 4 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: CHEM 2880  or CHEM 3900  or equivalents. Primarily for graduate students.

B. Crane.

Physical properties of proteins will be discussed from a quantitative perspective and related to biological function. Topic will include: chemical, structural, thermodynamic, hydrodynamic, conductive properties of soluble and membrane proteins; conformational transitions; protein stability and folding; protein-protein interactions; photochemistry and spectroscopic properties of proteins; protein dynamics; electron and proton transfer within proteins and the behavior of large complexes. Modern experimental and computational methods of protein science will be presented including the application of single molecule studies.
