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…

On Cytochrome, a Respiratory Pigment, Common to Animals, Yeast, and Higher Plants

The conclusion is arrived at that myo- and histohaematin are respiratory pigments different and independent from haemoglobin and its derivatives.


It is the purpose to reconstruct, in the light of present knowledge, the biochemical events occurring in the living bacterial cell concerned with the dissimilation of carbohydrates.

Einführung in die Chemie der Hämine

An attempt has been made to describe the various kinds of hæmin-containing complexes, such as hemoglobin, myoglobin, cytochromes, peroxidases and catalases from a point of view elucidating not only their common structural principles but also the variations in their functions resulting from the small but essential differences in structure.

Porphyrins and Their Relation to the Metabolism of Blood Pigments

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 for

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.

The Unfinished Story of Cytochrome f

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.

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.

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 macroscopical
