 Hans Adolf Krebs Biography | scit_0612_package.xml
Hans Adolf Krebs won the 1953 Nobel Prize for physiology or medicine, which he shared with American biochemist Fritz Albert Lipmann (1899-1986), for his studies of intermediary metabolism, especially his discovery of the metabolic pathway known as the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle, or Krebs cycle, the major source of energy in living organisms.
Krebs was also involved in the discovery of the metabolic pathway known as the urea cycle.
Krebs was born in Hildesheim in Hanover, Germany.

Sir Hans Adolf Krebs is the son of Georg Krebs, M.D., an ear, nose, and throat surgeon of that city, and his wife Alma, née Davidson.
Krebs was educated at the Gymnasium Andreanum at Hildesheim and between the years 1918 and 1923 he studied medicine at the Universities of Göttingen, Freiburg-im-Breisgau, and Berlin.
Among the subjects he has studied are the synthesis of urea in the mammalian liver, the synthesis of uric acid and purine bases in birds, the intermediary stages of the oxidation of foodstuffs, the mechanism of the active transport of electrolytes and the relations between cell respiration and the generation of adenosine polyphosphates.

 Sir Hans Adolf Krebs (www.whonamedit.com)
Hans Adolf Krebs in 1953 received the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine for the discovery in living organisms of the series of chemical reactions known as the tricarboxylic acid cycle, or Krebs cycle.
Krebs served on the faculty of Oxford University from 1945 to 1967.
In 1937 Krebs was able to demonstrate the existence of a cycle of chemical reactions that combines the end-product of sugar breakdown, later shown to be an «activated» form of the two-carbon acetic acid, with the four-carbon oxaloacetic acid to form citric acid.

 Hans Adolf Krebs Biography | World of Biology
In the course of several years of research, Krebs discovered that when amino acids were broken down (or degraded), their nitrogen atoms were the first to be stripped away.
While at Sheffield, Krebs concentrated much of his attention on carbohydrate metabolism and discovered the process for which he is best known: the citric acid cycle (also called the tricarboxylic acid cycle or, more simply, the Krebs cycle).
Krebs was interested in discovering how the lactic acid was then broken down into carbon dioxide and water--and was now somehow able to release a comparatively great deal of energy.

 Carolina: Science Quizzes: Krebs
Krebs researched intermediate metabolism, eventually explaining how foodstuffs are oxidized to produce energy in chemical processes known as the Krebs cycle (also known as the tricarboxylic acid cycle and the citric acid cycle).
Krebs said in his acceptance speech for the Nobel Prize that he became interested in research because he was convinced that “an understanding of the process of energy production will eventually help us in solving some of the practical problems of medicine.”
Hans Adolf Krebs was born in 1900 to a well-educated professional family in Germany.

This comprehensive volume completes Frederic Holmes' notable and detailed biography of Hans Krebs, from the investigator's early development through the major phase of his groundbreaking investigation, which lay the foundations upon which the modern structure of intermediary metabolism is built.
With access to Krebs' research notebooks as well as to Krebs himself through more than five years of personal interviews, the author provides an insightful analysis of Hans Krebs and of the scientific process as a whole.
This second volume reconstructs the investigative pathway and the professional and personal life of Hans Krebs, from the time of his arrival in England in 1933 until 1937, when he made the discovery for which he is best known--the formulation of the citric acid cycle.
