9781331894407: The Differentiation and Specificity of Corresponding Proteins and Other Vital Substances in Relation to Biological Classification and Organic ... of Hemoglobins (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Differentiation and Specificity of Corresponding Proteins and Other Vital Substances in Relation to Biological Classification and Organic Evolution: The Crystallography of Hemoglobins

This research was begun by me in October, 1902, and after considerable preliminary laboratory investigation I found that in the solution of my problems the crystallographic method promised at the present time to be the most likely to yield satisfactory results. Not being an authority in the science of crystallography, I associated with me in 1904 one of my colleagues. Professor Amos Peaslee Brown, upon whom has fallen especially that portion of the work which demanded the services of an expert crystallographer.

The trend of modern biological science seems to be irresistibly toward the explanation of all vital phenomena on a physico-chemical basis, and this movement has already brought about the development of a physico-chemical physiology, a physico-chemical pathology, and a physico-chemical therapeutics. The striking parallelisms that have been shown to exist in the properties and reactions of colloidal and crystalloidal matter in vitro and in the Uving organism lead to the assumption that protoplasm may be looked upon as consisting essentially of an extremely complex solution of interacting and interdependent colloids and crystalloids, and therefore that the phenomena of life are manifestations of colloidal and crystalloidal interactions in a peculiarly organized solution. We imagine this solution to consist mainly of proteins with various organic and inorganic substances. The constant presence of protein, fat, carbohydrate, and inorganic salts, together with the existence of protein-fat, protein-carbohydrate, and protein-inorganic salt combinations, justifies the belief that not only such substances, but also such combinations, are absolutely essential to the existence of life.

The very important fact that the physical, nutritive, or toxic properties of given substances may be greatly altered by a very slight change in the arrangement of the atoms or groups of molecules may be assumed to be conclusive evidence that a trifling modification in the chemical constitution of a vital substance may give rise to even a profound alteration in its physiological properties. This, coupled with the fact that differences in centesimal composition have proved very inadequate to explain the differences in the phenomena of living matter, implies that a much greater degree of importance is to be attached to peculiarities of chemical constitution than is universally recognized.

The possibilities of an inconceivable number of constitutional differences in any given protein are instanced in the fact that the serum albumin molecule may, as has been estimated, have as many as 1,000 million stereoisomers.
