This videohistory documents the Moore-Stein Protein Sequencer. The sequencer enabled automatic analysis of protein structure and was the forerunner of the automated instruments essential to modern biotechnology.
Divided into 3 series: (1) Original videos; (2) Master videos; (3) Reference videos.
Biographical / Historical:
The first complete chemical analysis of a protein's primary structure was done on a small protein, insulin, by Frederic Sanger at Cambridge University for which he received the first of his two Nobel Prizes in 1958. The second protein structure to be completely analyzed was ribonuclease, done in the U.S. by Stanford Moore and William Stein at Rockefeller University, 1960.
Related Archival Materials:
The protein sequencer apparatus is located in the Division of Science Medicine, and Society (now Division of Medicine and Science).
Created by the Jerome and Dorothy Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation, National Museum of American History, 1996.
