  • Letter from Dr. A.C. Allison, Cell Metabolism Research Unit, Biochemistry Dept., University of Oxford, to LP RE: Work on the sickle cell transformation, begun in LP's lab and continued at Allison's lab, is now fit for publication. LP has suggested publishing it in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Allison would agree, but worries that the work is too extensive to fit into one published paper. Allison's results with compounds attaching themselves to SH groups, interactions of S and C, etc., support the helical aggregation concept. Orientation of Hb molecules turns out to be important in this concept. Requests clarification of a statement made by LP at the Harvey Lectures on Perutz's work.
