From Biochemistry to Molecular Biology
Lecture no. 24 from the course: Biochemistry and Molecular Biology: How Life Works
Taught by Professor Kevin Ahern | 28 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Trace the pathways of two widely ingested molecules: caffeine and fructose. Caffeine fools the body—usually harmlessly—into increasing glucose in the blood, while too much fructose can lead to unhealthy accumulation of fat in the liver. Then focus on two topics that link with the upcoming molecular biology segment of the course: androgen insensitivity and the molecular mechanisms of aging.
