IT was originally our intention to have commenced this second part of our paper with a discussion of the various artificial products resembling urobilin which have been obtained by the action of chemical reagents upon bilirubin and ha-matin, but the study of these products proved of such complexity and the work expanded so much as it progressed that we find ourselves compelled to relegate the discussion of this subject to yet a further instalment and to content ourselves with presenting, on the… Expand

Recent studies of the urobilin problem
TLDR
It is now almost a century since Jaffe described urobilin and it is now generally accepted that the conversion of haemoglobin to bilirubin is readily effected by a highly specific enzymatic activity. Expand
THE SIGNIFICANCE OF UROBILOGEN IN THE URINE AS A TEST FOR LIVER FUNCTION: WITH A DESCRIPTION OF A SIMPLE QUANTITATIVE METHOD FOR ITS ESTIMATION
TLDR
In any disease of the liver, it is unlikely that all functions are deranged, or at least equally involved, and, furthermore, there is no known single test which measures liver function as a whole. Expand
Alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency: a biological enigma.
TLDR
Although alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency is a genetically determined error of protein synthesis, environmental factors, unrecognised at present, are required for the disease to become overt, this interesting association may herald an increasing number of clinical diseases in which the interaction of environmental stimuli and single genetically determined aberrations are crucially important.

TLDR
In reflecting on the inborn errors of metabolism, Garrod was led to formulate ideas about what he called chemical individuality, which foreshadowed many other modern ideas of molecular biology. Expand

Inhibitory effects of cerebellar lesions on respiration in the spontaneously breathing, anesthetized cat
TLDR
The results suggest that in the anesthetized cat the cerebellum tonically excites respiratory centers controlling respiratory rate and the termination of inspiration, and vagal input appears to be important in the expression of the Cerebellar influence on spontaneous respiration. Expand
Harn- und Blutfarbstoffe und deren Chromogene sowie Melanine
Jeder normale Harn ist heller oder dunkler gelb gefarbt und gibt im Spektroskop keine Absorptionsstreifen; die meisten Harne zeigen eine geringe Fluorescenz.
