Abstract

In the article "Absorption and metabolism ofiron" [Science 123, 87 (20 Jan. 1955)], the wavelength of maximum absorption of the iron-siderophilin complex was incorrectly given as 520 millimicrons. On page 89, the first sentence in thesecond paragraph under the heading "Iron transport" should read "The Fe+++-B1-globulin complexhas a characteristic salmon-pink color with a maximum light absorption at 460 millimicrons...."
