Things I may have contributed to:
Coenzyme Q - cytochrome c reductase
cytochrome c oxidase
cytochrome c peroxidase
Dating the Bible
electron transfer chain
essential amino acid
high energy phosphate
Magnetic Circular Dichroism
net protein utilization
nuclear magnetic resonance
Protein data bank
sickle cell anemia
I've gone through most of the enzymes listed in enzyme and added Protein Data Bank references for them, added an essential amino acid reference to all the essential amino acids, and added a ton of oxidation numbers to unconverted transition metal elements (and some text, occasionally).
Materials I May Have Used in Reference
I write a lot of stuff, and it doesn't come out of the blue. So, these notes or texts may have been consulted while writing articles above.
- Class notes by Prof K. Matthews or Prof J. Olson, or that G. Palmer guy. (More recently, I have contacted John to get access to more current class notes in use at Rice. Material based on these will appear shortly)
- The occasional pithy comment of Prof John Walker, or a Prof G. Ackers, or Prof T. Yonetani, or Prof Len Spicer.
