Class Objectives
/Class Outline
This course is provided mainly in English and focuses on recent progresses in physiological studies of animals at the molecular level. All students who register in this class have to participate in the discussion and make presentations concerning their own research subjects. Students also are requested to read  the contents of the scientific papers appearing in the leading journals. Eventually, students will gain the abilities for logical and critical thinking in science. 
Class Schedule Read the latest original works and review articles on animal physiology and conduct exercises to approach clarification of physiological functions from physiological chemistry and molecular biology standpoint.
lesson1-3 Physiological function of metal ions in animals and the membrane transper system. Read the original related papers and review articles, and discuss  the contents.
lesson4-6 Detoxification of metal ions, redox system, and metallo-chaperons. Read the original related papers and review articles, and discuss  the contents.
