additional remarks For fundamental and applied reasons, it is often important to know in which order and with which velocity biochemical reactions occur. Often, external factors (activators, inhibitors,...) influence sequence and speed of the reaction. Kinetics solves these problems. The course shows how to design kinetic experiments, how to detect reaction intermediates, and how to analyze the experimental data. _______________________________________________ Aus grundlegendem und angewandtem Interesse ist es oft wichtig zu wissen, in welcher Reihenfolge und mit welcher Geschwindigkeit ein biochemischer Prozess abläuft. Häufig beeinflussen äußere Faktoren (Aktivatoren, Inhibitoren etc.) Abfolge und Geschwindigkeit der (Teil-)Reaktionen. Die Klärung dieser Probleme ist Aufgabe der Kinetik. Die Lehrveranstaltung zeigt auf, wie kinetische Experimente konzipiert werden, welche Theorien hinter der Praxis stehen, warum Reaktionswege und -Intermediate gefunden werden können, und wie Ergebnisse kinetischer Untersuchungen zu beurteilen sind.
