Eleven years later his younger brother Leonard, who had also become a plant physiologist interested in metabolism, would follow the same route across the Atlantic. Leonard and his wife, Pat, came to the United States in 1961, and he focused his research on nitrogen metabolism, leaving carbon metabolism to Harry. Leonard became a well-recognized plant biochemist in his own right. THE DISCOVERY OF THE GLYOXYLATE CYCLE IN PLANTS At Purdue, Harry took up the problem of respiration again. At that time (1950) it was not at all clear that the tricarboxylic (TCA) cycle was operating in plants as part of respiration.
