The prerequisite(s) for this Teaching Unit (Unité d’enseignement – UE) for the programmes/courses that offer this Teaching Unit are specified at the end of this sheet.
Main themes
Cell function is approached as a thermodynamic system exchanging matter and energy with its environment. The main topics include: the physical/chemical laws governing these exchanges, the signals allowing the exchange of information between and within cells, the mechanism of muscular contraction, models of muscular contraction, and the functioning of the immune system.

At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :

1 At the end of this course, the student will understand the principle structures and functions in common to all eukaryotic cells. In addition, the specialized functions of striated muscle cells will be studied in detail. The basic mechanisms of immune system will also be covered.
