Introductory Remarks at the Beginning of Session III

It is, of course, especially appropriate that Professor Roughton, to whom this conference is dedicated, discovered along with Meldrum in 1933 the very interesting metalloenzyme which we will be discussing this morning. Fortunately, Dr. John Kernohan, who has worked with Professor Roughton on a number of important kinetic studies of red cell carbonic anhydrase is here to present some of his recent work on the activity of this enzyme. Little does he know, however, that the real reason I asked him to come here from Dundee was that I thought he might be influential in procuring some blood for me from a certain elusive denizen of a certain renowed Scottish loch. Its red cells should contain a very interesting carbonic anhydrase.
