Having received no instructions, I am free to choose my own theme for these introductory remarks. I could have followed the other distinguished chairmen by talking about my own recent work. It is true that since last September I do not have a laboratory, but I could perhaps follow our Plenary Lecturer who, when asked by the Editorial Secretariat of BBA to fill in a form for editors and reviewers indicating the fields in which they work wrote, among others, “Thinking”. However, I think that for this occasion it might be more appropriate if I used my allotted time to recall to you the circumstances just thirty years ago in which Tsoo King and David Keilin succeeded in reconstituting succinate oxidase in alkali-treated Keilin and Hartree heart muscle preparation.
