Edgar Anderson: Interdisciplinary authority on what was not known about corn


, : Edgar Anderson: Interdisciplinary authority on what was not known about corn. Endeavour (Cambridge) 23(3): 114-117, Sept

While Edgar Anderson made significant contributions to the Mangelsdorf and Reeves 'tripartite hypothesis' on the origin of maize and added to the development of hybrid corn, his interests ranged widely over many aspects of the plant. Ultimately, he captured this approach by stating that his goal was 'To study the plain old-fashioned Botany of Corn with the greatest possible precision.' His work shows the power of an interdisciplinary research program that combined genetics, morphology and taxonomy while drawing on agronomy, archaeology and anthropology.

Thrombin-activatable fibrinolysis inhibitor (TAFI), also known as carboxypeptidase R, has been implicated as an important negative regulator of the fibrinolytic system. In addition, TAFI is able to inactivate inflammatory peptides such as compleme...
