About this Item

Signed by Wilkins and Wilson Hamilton, L. D.; Barclay, R. K.; Wilkins, Maurice (1916- ); Brown, G. L.; Wilson, H. R. (1929- ), et al. Similarity of the structure of DNA from a variety of sources. Offprint from J. Biophys. & Biochem. Cytology 5 (1959). 397-404pp. 8 photographic plates. 253 x 175 mm. Original printed wrappers, tiny rust stains on back wrapper. Fine copy, signed by Wilkins and Wilson on the front wrapper. First Separate Edition. The authors showed, by comparing DNA x-ray diffraction patterns from diverse species and tissues, that the patterns were the same; "the presently observable structure of DNA appears, then, to be the same in all cells" (p. 397). The data obtained by the authors' investigations "suggests that DNA cannot exist in significant amounts in forms other than the double-helix" and that "the double helical structure of DNA exists in the cell and is not an artifact" (p. 397). Most of the illustrations show comparisons of DNA x-ray diffraction patterns from different sources. Bookseller Inventory # 38470
