capable of causing gastrointestinal symptoms in cattle (2).
He has solved the structures of numerous important proteins, including angiogenin and related ribonucleases, angiotensin-converting enzymes, bacterial toxins and superantigens, eosinophil-granule proteins, galactosyltransferases, Charcot-Leyden crystal protein, ct-Iactalbumin, glycogen phosphorylase, and foot-and-mouth disease virus; the first animal virus
structure ever solved outside the United States.
