The Molecular Weights of Proteins.

  title={The Molecular Weights of Proteins.},
  author={William Thomas Astbury and H. J. Woods},
ONE of the most satisfactory features of recent advances in the X-ray analysis of compounds of high molecular weight has been the degree of co-ordination between the efforts of the structure analyst and those of the chemist. Especially is this true in the case of investigations of the structure of cellulose and its derivatives. The question of protein structure, however, appears to bring in its train problems of quite another order of complexity, and it does not seem to be at all clear what is… 
Nature of the Linkages in Proteins
THERE is now a considerable amount of agreement that the polypeptides in the protein molecule are held together by cross-linkages1, but so far crucial experiments, from which the exact nature of
X-Ray Photographs of Crystalline Pepsin
IT is now some time since we first took X-ray powder photographs of crystalline pepsin kindly sent by Prof. J. H. Northrop, but no really satisfactory interpretation of these photographs presented

The word "clearly" is a swindle because the author is unable to provide any good evidence in support of what he is about to say and hopes to get away with it by persuading his readers that it is so obvious, or so universally accepted, thatit is a waste of time to go over the arguments.

The Stress‐Strain Relation in Textile Fibers
Stress‐strain relations for eight common textile fibers are given (four rayons, silk, wool, cotton and ramie) under known humidity conditions. The method has two novel features: (1) In each

FROM the recent papers by Mr. P. S. H. Henry1 and others, it appears that interest is being taken in the phenomena which occur in a sounding tube. It may be well to direct attention to some results I
