In a short paper read before the Physiological Society, in 1884 I gave a preliminary account of a new colouring matter which I had discovered in muscle by means of the spectroscope; also of a class of colouring matters found in the tissues and organs of invertebrate and vertebrate animals to which the former pigment evidently belongs, and which I named histohæmatins from their occurrence in the animal tissues. The name myohæmatin was proposed for the muscle pigment for reasons which will be… Expand

On Cytochrome, a Respiratory Pigment, Common to Animals, Yeast, and Higher Plants
Under the names myohaematin and histohaematin MacMunn (1884-1886) described a respiratory pigment, which he found in muscles and other tissues of representatives of almost all the orders of theExpand

The more exact chemical knowledge and quantitative technique developed during the last ten or fifteen years has shown that the porphyrins play a vital part both in normal and pathological pigment metabolism, and their study should help to throw light upon the mechanism of synthesis and utilization of blood pigment.

Keilin, Cytochrome and Its Nomenclature
D. S. Bendall describes the micro-spectroscopic studies on bacteria, tissue, and plant samples that took place in Cambridge in the years just preceding World War II, which provided the rationale forExpand
Evolution of Mitochondrial Studies
Today, every student of biology is aware of the fact that the mitochondrion is a specialized organelle whose primary functions are the conservation of oxidatively derived energy and its utilization for ATP synthesis. Expand

The problems that remain for understanding the behavior of cytochrome f in the thylakoid lumen are contrasted with the significance of in vitro studies that provide a paradigm for transient protein—protein interactions in the wider field of biology as a whole. Expand
Characterization of an invertebrate transferrin from the crabCancer magister (Arthropoda)
The findings negate the concept that transferrin is a newcomer in the evolutionary scene and to be found only in the phylum Chordata and the need for a specific iron transport protein of the transferrin class is independent of the achievement of hemoglobin as a means to accomplish oxygen transport.

Introduction: A History of the Biochemistry of Plant Respiration
The history of biochemistry codifies the development of scientific thought and achievement; it confers a sense of perspective on its students and provides the basis for further scientific investigation. Expand
The Histological Features of Striped Muscle in Relation to Its Functional Activity
Analysis of the reflex behaviour of striped muscles involves data drawn from their histological structure, and the present observations deal with the differences in microscopical and macroscopicalExpand
Structure and Evolution of the “Atmungsferment” Cytochrome c Oxidase
Approximately 50 years ago, Otto Warburg received the Nobel Prize for his fundamental work on the “Atmungsferment”. But not until the end of the fifties was it possible to isolate this complicatedExpand
