Teaching Receptor Theory to Biochemistry Undergraduates
Benore-Parsons, Marilee; Sufka, Kenneth J.
Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, v31 n2 p85-92 Mar 2003
Receptor:ligand interactions account for numerous reactions critical to biochemistry and molecular biology. While students are typically exposed to some examples, such as hemoglobin binding of oxygen and signal transduction pathways, the topic could easily be expanded. Theory and kinetic analysis, types of receptors, and the experimental assay techniques should be included to properly prepare students for careers in research, medicine, or professional programs. In this article we offer a range of material for teaching these concepts to students. (Contains 1 footnote, 2 tables, and 6 figures.)
