This course provides a research literature-based view of modern aspects of cellular signal transduction and includes student-driven discussions of seminal papers in the signal transduction field. Topics include receptor-mediated signal transduction originating at the plasma membrane and covers major effector pathways including those leading to second messenger generation, kinase-cascade assembly, and activation of transcription factors. Signaling mechanisms related to cellular homeostasis, developmental biology, immunology, and cancer will also be discussed.
Students need to have some background in biochemistry and/or genetics. Appropriate courses include CHEM3040, MEDS3020, MEDS3021, MEDS3022, MEDS4027, or MEDS4028. If you have taken a relevant biochemistry or genetics course, please contact Dr. Miller with this information and you may be given permission to enroll.
There is no required textbook; however, the following textbook serves as an excellent reference for many of the subjects covered in the class.
