Author(s): The Carter Center, the Ethiopia Ministry of
Sir Arthur Harden, was a British
biochemist. He shared the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1929 with Hans Karl August
Simon von Euler-Chelpin for their investigations into the fermentation of sugar
and fermentative enzymes. Topics covered in this book are: Historical
Introduction, Zymase and its Properties, The Function of Phosphates in Alcoholic
Fermentation, The Co-Enzyme of Yeast-Juice, Action of Some Inhibiting and
Accelerating Agents on the Enzymes of Yeast-Juice, Carboxylase, The By-Products
of Alcoholic Fermentation, The Chemical Changes involved in Fermentation, The
Mechanism of Fermentation.

The course note provides students with a
research-inspired laboratory experience that introduces standard biochemical
techniques in the context of investigating a current and exciting research
topic, acquired resistance to the cancer drug Gleevec. Techniques include
protein expression, purification, and gel analysis, PCR, site-directed
mutagenesis, kinase activity assays, and protein structure viewing.
