Biomolecular Chemistry

Room C5b/031


Biomolecular Chemistry

1. Biomolecules & Biomimetics. Structure, function and biorecognition.

María Isabel Pividori (4 h)/Manel del Valle (3 h)

Proteins: enzymes, affinity proteins, antibodies, diabodies, affibodies, avimers, cellular receptors. Biorecognition and function: enzyme/substrate; antigen/antibody; receptor/ligand interaction. Cell signaling. DNA/RNA structure and function. Amplification. Aptamers. Molecular imprinted polymers and plastic antibodies.


Biomolecular Chemistry

2. Metal-containing biomolecules: structure, function, and mimetics.

MercèCapdevilla (7 h)

The biochemistry of metal ions. Uptake, transport and storage of metal ions in biology. Electron transfer, respiration, and photosynthesis. Oxygen metabolism. Other metaloproteins of interest. Metal ion receptors and signaling. Metals in medicine.


Biomolecular Chemistry

3. Computational Techniques in Biomolecular Chemistry.

Jean-Didier Maréchal (3h)

Specificities of computation at the interface chemistry-biology. Relationship between chemical, biological and conformational space. Protein-ligand dockings. Molecular Dynamics. Multiscale. Advantages, limitations. Reactivity in biochemical systems. Examples.


Biomolecular Chemistry

4. Chemistry and biomedicine: molecules for medical diagnosis and imaging.

Joan Suades (4 h).

Diagnostic imaging techniques. Contrast agents. Radiopharmaceuticals for therapy.


Biomolecular Chemistry

5. Natural products: biosynthesis and properties.

Adelina Vallribera (5 h)/ Ramón Alibés (5h)

Natural products in drug discovery and therapeutic medicine: historical overview.

Carbohydrates, the sweet molecules of life. The acetate pathway: fatty acids and polyketides.

The mevalonate pathway: terpenoids and steroids. The shikimate pathway: aromatic aminoacids and phenyl propanoids. Alkaloids, secrets of life.


Biomolecular Chemistry

6. Biomolecule production, separation, modification and determination.

María Isabel Pividori (4 h)/Maneldel Valle (3 h)

Isolation and production of biomolecules. Separation strategies. Labelling and immobilization. Bioanalysis: immunochemical methods, DNA assays, biological catalysed methods, biosensing. Chips and arrays.


Biomolecular Chemistry

7. Nanomaterials in biosciences

María Isabel Pividori (4 h)
