Course objectives
The course extends the knowledge of biochemistry acquired in the course Biochemistry I and deals with integration of biochemical processes in human body.Upon completion of this course the student should understand: biochemical processes characteristic for individual organs and tissues and principles of their regulation, metabolic interrelationships between metabolism of nutrients under various conditions in organism, principles of maintenance of homeostasis and acid-base equilibrium in the body. He should also recognize which aspects of the biochemical pathways, when altered, lead to diseases. Special attention is focused on biochemical processes in oral cavity and biochemical aspects of dental tissues.
  • Digestion and absorption of lipids. Blood plasma lipids and the major groups of lipoproteins. Metabolic fate of chylomicrons and VLDL, the metabolism of HDL. The biosynthesis of steroid hormones. The synthesis and hydroxylation of calciol. The integration of intermediary metabolism at the tissue and organ level. The metabolic functions of the liver. Catabolism of haemoglobin, bilirubin metabolism. Metabolism of iron. Biotransformation of xenobiotics. Control of metabolism. Mechanism of hormone and neurotransmitter action. Types of cell membrane receptors, intracellular effects of ligand binding; intracellular receptors. Nerve cells. Neurosecretion. The biosynthesis and inactivation of neurotransmitters, neurotransmission across synapses. Cholinergic, adrenergic, and (inhibitory) gabaergic receptors. Body water, the movement of water between ECF and ICF, water excretion. Ionic composition of blood plasma, gradients of Na+ and K+ across cell membranes. Osmolality of ECF, regulation of the ECF osmolality and volume, fluid and electrolyte balance. Transport of O2 and CO2. Metabolic pathways producing/consumpting H+ ions. Buffer bases of blood, blood plasma (concentrations of components), ICF, the parameters of acid-base status. The role of the lung, the kidney, and the liver in maintaining acid-base balance. Normal renal functions. Glomerular filtration. Tubular resorption and secretion. The major proteins of blood plasma. The blood-coagulation cascade, inhibition of clotting. Fibrinogen, fibrin, fibrinolysis. Blood cells. The specific immune response. Soluble and cell free antigens, immunoglobulin structures. Circulating immune complexes, secondary reactions. The extracellular matrix. Synthesis and post-translational modifications of collagen, intermolecular crosslinks in collagen and elastin, proteoglycans. Calcification of bone, regulation. Biochemical markers of bone resorption and formation. Metabolism of Ca, P, F. Saliva and metabolism of oral cavity. Dental plaques.
