Rosalind Franklin, whose X-ray photographs of DNA were crucial to Watson and Crick's discovery of the molecule's double helix structure in 1953, began researching the molecular structure of selected plant viruses after moving from King's College to Birkbeck College in mid-1953. She was aided in this work by Aaron Klug, who would later win the 1982 Nobel Prize in chemistry for developing crystallographic electron microscopy and for elucidating the structure of biologically important nucleic acid-protein complexes. The two began investigating the structure of tobacco mosaic virus (TMV), making several important discoveries regarding the arrangement of the virus's protein subunits and RNA strand; later in their researches Klug and Franklin agreed to divide the work, with Franklin taking on TMV and other rod-shaped plant viruses, and Klug concentrating on spherical plant viruses such as turnip yellow mosaic virus (TYMV). Klug continued his virus researches after Franklin's death, first at Birkbeck and later at Cambridge University's MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, which he joined in 1962. The present papers report "the early stages of an X-ray diffraction study of crystals of turnip yellow mosaic virus (TYMV). This has shown that the virus particle has cubic symmetry, with a strong pseudo-symmetry higher than that of the cubic unit cell of the crystal, and has given an indication of what the actual arrangement of the protein sub-units might be" ("The structure of turnip yellow mosaic virus: X-ray diffraction studies," p. 242). Klug, Franklin and Finch briefly announced their findings in Nature (no. [1] above), following up with a longer paper published in Biochimica et biophysica acta (no. [2] above).

    Magnesium and the Cell. by Nicholas J. Birch, [Editor]

    London, UK Academic Press, 1993. Hardcover First Edition [1993], unstated. Near Fine: shows only the most minute indications of use; very small brownish stain to front free endpaper Binding square and secure; text clean. Very close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8 vo. 289pp. [FactsBook Series]. Hardback without Dustwrapper as issued. First Edition [1993], unstated.Pictorial Laminate Boards. This volume comprises an interdisciplinary survey of the molecular and biochemical functions of magnesium in cells. It will be of use to biochemists and pharmacologists studying the many processes in which magnesium has a pivotal role. Clinical researchers will be interested because magnesium is the second most common intracellular ion. Its deficiency is frequently associated with concomitant changes in potassium ion. In practice, however, it is most common for the potassium ion charges alone to be treated, the association with magnesium not being recognized. This book will also be of value to those who seek to understand the molecular role of metal ions in the regulation of biological processes and the role of biomolecular interactions in cellular signalling and control. SPECIAL FEATURES: This book provides an interdisciplinary survey of the molecular and biochemical survey fo the molecular and biochemical functions of magnesium in the cells. * Covers magnesium's widespread role in regulation of enzymes, transmitters, membrane functions and cell-signalling processes.
