Crystals and carriers: The chemical and physiological identification of hemoglobin (1995)


Description Concentrates on a particular historical question: “How did hemoglobin come to be understood as a combination of a protein and an iron-containing pigment, whose physiological function was to transport oxygen from the lungs to the tissues of vertebrate animals?” Discusses in particular the work of Felix Hoppe-Seyler in the years 1857-1867.
