In 1928 the Hungarian-born American biochemist Albert von Nagyrapolt Szent-Gyorgyi (1893-1986), while working at Cambridge University under Hopkins (see 1900, Tryptophan), isolated a substance from adrenal glands that easily lost and regained a pair of hydrogen atoms and was therefore, like glutathione (see 1921), a hydrogen carrier.
