The subject forms an extention of the basic course of Biochemistry I. It should bring students to a wider understanding of biological and biochemical consequences. Therefore, the topics of lectures reflect knowledge from different areas of biochemistry (structure of biopolymers, molecular genetics, metabolism by bioanalytical methods etc).


1. The story of contemporary biochemistry
2. Metabolism and transport of oxygen and carbon dioxide
3. Biochemistry of essential factors
4. Regulation of enzyme activity
5. Hormones and transfer of information across biological membranes
6. Coordination of metabolic functions in multicellular organism
7. Eukaryotic cells Biochemistry I - organelles
8. Eukaryotic cells Biochemistry II - cytoskeleton
9. Biochemistry phototrophic organisms
10. Biochemistry chemotrophic microorganisms
11. Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology
12. Biochemistry in medicine I (Clinical Biochemistry)
13. Biochemistry in medicine II (biochemical causes of certain diseases)
14. Historical Overview of Biochemistry
