Module content and teaching

Principal aims

This module allows the final year students, who have a substantial background in molecular and cell biology from a number of first and second year modules, to apply this knowledge to a research area (protein targeting) which is a field of fundamental importance in cell biology.

Principal learning outcomes

the students should gain an appreciation of the molecular nature of the targeting signals and the appropriate transport apparatus, an appreciation of the specific protein-protein interactions required at each step of a given transport pathway, and of the mechanisms by which large globular proteins are translocated across membrane bilayers which, in several cases, are impermeable even to protons.
