Description du contenu de l'enseignement

Providing basic understanding of the chemistry of d-block metals in metalloproteins and of metal-based bioactive compounds.
  • Role of metal ions in biology, essential and non-essential metals.
  • Methods and concepts of importance in bioinorganic chemistry.
  • Cu-proteins, Cu-enzymes and their models: electron transfer, activation of oxygen and other moelcuels, oxygen transport, etc.
  • Zn in bioinorganic chemistry: Zn-enzymes, structural Zn-sites and Zn as messenger.
  • Transport, cell-uptake and storage of iron. Regulators of iron in a cell.
  • Metals and health: metal related disease and metal-based drugs

Compétences à acquérir

  • Knowing, applying and recognizing the basic principles of (bio)inorganic chemistry in/to different biological and medicinal relevant systems (metal-biomolecules, bioactive metal-complexes, etc.), including systems not treated in the teaching unit.
  • Capable of understanding basic bioinorganic chemical experiments and be able to suggest potential experiments to solve a metal-related biological relevant question.
