Protein structure in medicine - a team-based learning exercise

Protein structure in medicine - a team-based learning exercise
Protein structure in medicine - a team-based learning exercise
This exercise is designed specifically to be used in a Team-based learning format. It covers protein structure, a basic topic of Biochemistry and Cell Biology in Medicine and Dentistry. It is presented here as a paper copy for ease of review for instructors. However, it can be presented to classes on a course server or as a power point presentation. The goal of the resource is to 1.) Assess the student's ability to recall facts and concepts concerning protein structure (IRAT/GRAT); and 2.) To challenge students to apply and integrate the information they have learned in a team based learning environment (application). The resource includes 10 IRAT/GRAT multiple choice questions which focus on concepts and facts of protein structure. The GRAT works well with IF-AT cards.

The application in this resource raises, questions concerning the structure and folding (or mis-folding) of a variety of medically relevant proteins. The application is done one question at a time with information from one question often being used by the next question. Questions relating to protein folding, sulfhydral bonds, chaperonins, insulin, and prion proteins are addressed.

Abstract

This exercise is designed specifically to be used in a Team-based learning format. It covers protein structure, a basic topic of Biochemistry and Cell Biology in Medicine and Dentistry. It is presented here as a paper copy for ease of review for instructors. However, it can be presented to classes on a course server or as a power point presentation. The goal of the resource is to 1.) Assess the student's ability to recall facts and concepts concerning protein structure (IRAT/GRAT); and 2.) To challenge students to apply and integrate the information they have learned in a team based learning environment (application). The resource includes 10 IRAT/GRAT multiple choice questions which focus on concepts and facts of protein structure. The GRAT works well with IF-AT cards.

The application in this resource raises, questions concerning the structure and folding (or mis-folding) of a variety of medically relevant proteins. The application is done one question at a time with information from one question often being used by the next question. Questions relating to protein folding, sulfhydral bonds, chaperonins, insulin, and prion proteins are addressed.
