Typed letter signed, one page, 8,25 x 11,75 inch, `Institut für Genetik der Universität zu Köln` stationery, Cologne, 7.12.1973, in German, reply letter to Mr. Temmen - concerning the lac repressor, signed in red ballpoint ink, with two horizontal letter folds - in nearly very fine condition. In parts: "... Eine genetische Analyse des Lac-Repressors hat gezeigt daß dieser mit dem aminoterminalen Ende am Lac-Operator bindet. Eine Überholungsbedürftige Hypothese finden Sie in Nature 237, No. 5354, pg. 322-327 (Adler et al.) Mit anderen Worten, eine genaue Analyse der Bindungsart wird einer Röntgen-Strukturanalyse bedürfen." Translated: "... A genetic analysis of the lac repressor has shown that it binds with the amino-terminal end to the lac operator. A hypothesis that needs updating can be found in Nature 237, no. 5354, pg. 322-327 (Adler et al.) In other words, a detailed analysis of the mode of attachment will require X-ray structural analysis."
