This article describes Heidelberger and Karl Landsteiner's research into hemoglobin's ability to serve as an antigen
(a chemical or compound that stimulates an immunologic response, usually in the form of antibodies), an important step in
understanding the antigenic properties of proteins in general. The pair concluded that while hemoglobin can stimulate antibody
production, these antibodies are species-specific.
