Periodic Tales: A Cultural History of the Elements, from Arsenic to Zinc

just like the alphabet, the calendar, or the zodiac, the periodic desk of the chemical parts has an everlasting position in our mind's eye. yet other than the handful of universal ones (iron, carbon, copper, gold), the weather themselves stay wrapped in secret. we don't recognize what such a lot of them appear like, how they exist in nature, how they bought their names, or of what use they're to us. Unlocking their striking secrets and techniques and colourful pasts, Periodic stories is a passionate trip via mines and artists’ studios, to factories and cathedrals, into the woods and to the ocean to find the real tales of those attention-grabbing yet mysterious development blocks of the universe.

The Lady Anatomist: The Life and Work of Anna Morandi Manzolini

Anna Morandi Manzolini (1714-74), a lady artist and scientist, surmounted meager origins and constrained formal schooling to develop into essentially the most acclaimed anatomical sculptors of the Enlightenment. the girl Anatomist tells the tale of her arresting lifestyles and occasions, in mild of the intertwined histories of technology, gender, and paintings that complex her upward push to popularity within the eighteenth century.

Using the developing pea system, Beevers and Poulson (1972) compared the incorporation in vitro of several amino acids by systems isolated from cotyledons, which, in vivo, were synthesizing either mainly albumins or globulins. Some variations were observed which were consistent with a change from albumin to globulin synthesis but which did not represent very strong evi­ dence of product identification. Experiments carried out in this laboratory which were designed to precipitate legumin-synthesizing polysomes from in vitro incubations by the use of specific antiserum against legumin, resulted in the isolation of a product which could not be characterised (Yarwood, Boulter and Graham, unpublished).

The essential experimental finding was that Fraction I protein was labelled when ^'*C02 was supplied to expanding leaves but not mature leaves. The labelled Fraction I protein did not turn over unless the leaves were subjected to prolonged darkness or began to senesce. The other solu­ ble proteins turned over continually. Thus Fraction I protein can be synthesized and degraded but these processes did not occur simultaneously. Presumably there was a specific mechanism for degrading this protein but its molecular nature is unknown.
