Enzyme kinetics comprises the major quantitative part of a typical biochemistry course, but as it is usually compartmentalized into a few chapters of a giant tome, it can be tempting for students to either dismiss or not fully appreciate its usefulness in helping investigators decipher and understand biomolecular interactions. It is hard to convey to(More)
Prostatic acid phosphatase was isolated from benign hypertrophic prostate tissue by ammonium sulfate precipitation and affinity chromatography procedures. The purified enzyme was characterized by two-dimensional gel electrophoresis and shown to have a cluster of protein spots with an apparent molecular weight of 48 000 at pI 5.9 to 6.3 in 9 mol/l urea. The(More)
A laboratory project for a first semester biochemistry course is described, which integrates the traditional classroom study of the structure and function of biomolecules with the laboratory study of these molecules using fluorescence spectroscopy. Students are assigned a specific question addressing the stability/function of lipids, proteins, or nucleic(More)
To help faculty prepare and revise courses in all the disciplines represented in the MCAT(2015) , the American Association of Medical Colleges, through its MedEdPORTAL's iCollaborative, has established the Pre-health Collection, a repository of reviewed web resources that are openly and freely available to faculty, and indirectly through them to students.(More)
Content and emphases in undergraduate biochemistry courses can be readily tailored to accommodate the standards of the department in which they are housed, as well as the backgrounds of the students in the courses. A more challenging issue is how to construct laboratory experiences for a class with both chemistry majors, who usually have little or no(More)
The National Cancer Institute Diversity Set II (1356 compounds) and Diversity Set III (1597 compounds) were screened via in silico methods as potential inhibitors of low molecular weight protein tyrosine phosphatase (LWM-PTP) isoform B (EC 3.1.3.48). Those candidates that demonstrated comparable or better docking scores than that of pyridoxal 5'-phosphate(More)
The profound advances in the biomolecular sciences over the last decades have enabled similar advances in biomedicine. These advances have increasingly challenged our abilities to deploy them in an equitable and ethically acceptable manner. As such, it has become necessary and important to teach biomedical and scientific ethics to our students who will(More)
