Protein Folding in the Cell - BIOL520

Focuses on factors that mediate folding, trafficking and degradation in vivo

Course Directors: Ashok Deniz, Evan Powers, and Luke Wiseman
Term: Spring (every other year)
Credits: 3.0

This course is designed to highlight the important biological mechanisms that regulate protein homeostasis in the crowded intracellular environment. Specifically, we will focus on the biological and chemical factors that mediate protein folding, trafficking and degradation in vivo; the intracellular signaling cascades that regulate cellular protein folding efficiency; and the involvement of protein folding in human diseases.
