Acetate slides and colour acetate prints of x-ray diffraction images of DNA, created by the Biophysics Unit

Acetate x-ray diffraction images of DNA, some circular, 3 1/2” (9cm) diameter, some square, 1 1/2” x 1 1/2” (4cm x 4cm), created in the Biophysics Unit, some captioned with date, medium used (such as sodium, rubidium), and structure ( A and B). Also included are colour acetate prints of a molecular model of B-form DNA.

Acetate x-ray diffraction photographs relating to membrane research, [1967-1974]

Acetate x-ray diffraction photographs relating to Wilkins’ research on nerve membranes, including images of frog sciatic nerve and retina. Original title ‘Membrane x-ray patterns’. CLOSED for conservation

See KDBP/4/60 for offprint article by Allen Blaurock and Wilkins, ‘Structure of frog photoreceptor membranes’, published in Nature, vol 223, 30 Aug 1969

Acetate x-ray diffraction photographs relating to nerve membrane research, 1970-1971

Acetate x-ray photographs, with related index cards and coding, relating to nerve membrane research on samples including frog and pig sciatic nerves. Index cards include date, film number, type, sample, temperature, and duration and power of x-ray exposure for each image. The samples include frog and pig sciatic nerve, and are likely to relate to experimental research by the nerve membrane team, led by Wilkins. Original box titles ‘X-ray films (rubbishy)’ and ‘X-ray 1. Poly X-M (x-m), Myelin (m), phospholipid vesicles (v), amoeba plasmalemma’
