Sur la matiere verte des feuilles.
Journal Pharmacie. 1817, 3, p486-491.

The paper represents a study of the green pigment in leaves, which they named

and quinine, establish the importance of the green pigment in nature.

JACOB, Francois & MONOD, Jacques Lucien:
Genetic regulatory mechanisms in the synthesis of proteins.
Journal Molecular Biology. 1961, 3, p318-356.

It is shown the DNA is organized in sets of genes which consist of a structural gene
and a regulatory, or operator gene. The structural genes transmit the genetic code
from one generation of cells to the direct protein synthesis. Regulatory genes
communicate with the structural genes and regulate all biochemical processes
of the cell. Nobel Prize 1965 for Jacob and Monod.

EULER, Ulf Svante von:
A specific sympathomimetic ergone in adrenergic nerve fibers
(sympathin) and its relations to adrenaline and nor-adrenaline.
Acta Physiologica Scandinav. 1946, 12, p72-97.

Euler discovers that noradrenaline (norepinephrine) is the main transmitter of
sympathetic nerve impulse. By analyzing nerve extract, he showed the presence
of a substance with the properties of adrenaline but with an activity pattern not
identical with adrenaline behavior. Nobel Prize 1970.
