Dieser Buchtitel ist Teil des Digitalisierungsprojekts Springer Book Archives mit Publikationen, die seit den Anfängen des Verlags von 1842 erschienen sind. Der Verlag stellt mit diesem Archiv Quellen für die historische wie auch die disziplingeschichtliche Forschung zur Verfügung, die jeweils im historischen Kontext betrachtet werden müssen. Dieser Titel erschien in der Zeit vor 1945 und wird daher in seiner zeittypischen politisch-ideologischen Ausrichtung vom Verlag nicht beworben.
Protides of the Biological Fluids presents the functional approach to conformation that combines the physiological significance with physical and chemical appearance of the protein. This book discusses the technical details of purification, determination, or identification of given protein fractions. Organized into three sections, this book begins with an overview of the intramolecular cross-linked synthetic polypeptides that can be used as models for the organized spatial structure of proteins. This text then examines the polarization of fluorescence methods, which provide very sensitive hydrodynamic techniques for studying the internal organization and the rigidity of the polypeptide. Other sections consider the excretion of different classes of immunoglobulins in the external secretions of dogs. This book discusses as well the anti-coli antibody and the poliovirus neutralizing antibody activity of achlorhydric gastric juices. The final section deals with the introduction of gels as a medium for the electrophoresis of proteins. This book is a valuable resource for chemists, biochemists, and geneticists.

On the day after the 1959 Cambridge Congress, during which the International Union of Pure and Applied Biophysics was founded, a biophysics section was formed within the Society of Physical Chemistry (Societe de Chimie Physique). Since then, three of the Society's annual meetings (the 11th, 17th, and 23rd) were devoted exclusively to the physico-chemical study of biological systems. The first of these was held in June 1961 at a hotel in Col de Voza, at the foot of an alpine glacier above Chamonix. The second, in May 1967, took place in the more learned setting of the venerable rooms of the National Museum of Natural History in Paris. The third - the one dealt with in the present volume - was recently held at Orleans-La Source in the newly built lecture theatres of the young University, which is near the great Institutes of the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), on the Sologne plateau. These three stages are milestones of an evolution which characterises (at least schematically) the explosive evolution of biological physico-chemistry. The first colloquium, with the title 'Deoxyribonucleic Acid: Structure, Synthesis and Functions', actually marks the first contact of the physical chemist with one of the then most prestigious biological macromolecules, the structure of which had just been discovered, and in this way celebrated one of the first and most striking successes of molecular biology.
