Part 1:

Introduction: Although there is much talk in the news about stem cell research, the public and policymakers need to understand how basic body cells work to transmit information and replicate to facilitate more informed decisions.

As a biochemistry teacher, you have been asked to make a presentation on the transmission of information within the cell and the role of DNA and RNA in replication to a group of medical paraprofessionals at a community health center.

Task: Design a multimedia presentation (e.g., PowerPoint, Keynote) (suggested length of 5-9 slides) for medical paraprofessionals in the scenario in which you do the following:

Task: Design a multimedia presentation (e.g., PowerPoint, Keynote) for health workers on the biochemistry of BSE. Since these workers are unfamiliar with the basic biochemistry concepts necessary to understand how BSE occurs, you will need to include an overview of proteins.

A. Explain how BSE occurs at a molecular level.

1. Create an original model of an essential amino acid with side chains.

2. Describe two chemical characteristics (i.e., reactivity, toxicity, flammability, or hydrophobicity) of the amino acid of which you created a model.

3. Create an original diagram or series of diagrams of the different levels of protein structure and label the primary, secondary, tertiary, and quaternary structures.

4. Demonstrate how a peptide bond is made through dehydration, using a relevant chemical equation with structural chemical formulas.

5. Demonstrate how a peptide bond is broken through hydrolysis, using a relevant chemical equation with structural chemical formulas.

6. Explain the four forces (bonds) that stabilize a protein's three-dimensional structure at the tertiary level of protein structure.

7. Explain the role of protein misfolding and aggregation in BSE.

8. Explain the role of prions in BSE.

9. Explain the role of the chaperone protein in BSE.

B. Make recommendations for how this country that does not have regulations in place can decrease the risk of BSE infecting the food source.

C. When you use sources, include all in-text citations and references in APA format.

Part 2:

Introduction:  Hemoglobin is an essential protein necessary for the transport of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the body. Biochemists study the molecular activities necessary for the exchange and transport of oxygen and carbon dioxide between the body cells and lungs.

Task: Design a multimedia presentation (e.g., PowerPoint, Keynote) to teach laboratory technology students about hemoglobin and genetically transmitted molecular disease. Your presentation will be composed of two parts:

A. Hemoglobin

1. Create an original model of hemoglobin that shows how oxygen is carried by the molecule.

2. Explain the major differences between the oxygenated and

Objectives:

Describe the features of a given enzyme.
Demonstrate activation energy.
