This course covers the substances that compose, maintain and nourish living tissues. The chemical structure, property, metabolism, function as well as the practical and clinical aspects of the following groups of biochemical compounds are studied: amino acids, proteins, enzymes, cofactors, carbohydrates, lipids and nucleic acids. The normal and abnormal metabolisms of intermediate compounds are discussed. Pathways of energy utilization are emphasized. Examples of the roles of hormones, enzymes, vitamins, minerals and metabolites in regulating and maintaining the biochemical functions of the body are presented.
