Description of Structure and Function of

Invertebrate Oxygen Carriers


The content of Structure and Function of Invertebrate Oxygen Carriers volume is based predominantly on the lectures and posters presented by the participants of the Satellite Symposium "Structure and Function of Invertebrate Oxygen-Binding Proteins," held in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada, July 24-27, 1990, the week prior to the Xth International Biophysics Congress in Vancouver, British Columbia. Because not everyone who wished to attend this symposium was able to do so, we decided to also include in Structure and Function of Invertebrate Oxygen Carriers volume contributions from several non-participants.
Structure and Function of Invertebrate Oxygen Carriers volume is dedicated to the memories of Eraldo Antonini, Bernt Linzen and Robert Terwilliger, whose untimely deaths in recent years have tragically deprived all of us working in the area of oxygen-binding proteins of esteemed colleagues and personal friends. We would like to thank Maurizio Brunori, Emilia Chiancone, Heinz Decker, Jiirgen Markl and Joseph Bonaventura for contributing the memorial essays. 
We would like to thank the following for their support: Dr. G.T. Heberlein, Vice President for Research and Dean of the Graduate School, and Dr. R.J. Sokol, Dean of the School of Medicine, Wayne State University, the Center for Imaging Science of the University of Chicago, IBM Corporation, the National Institutes of Health and the U.S. Department of Energy. In particular, we would like to acknowledge our debt to Ms. Virginia M. Boyce for the careful editing and preparation of the manuscripts for publication.
