EMBDEN, GUSTAV
EMBDEN, GUSTAV (1874–1933), German biochemist. Born in Hamburg, Embden was appointed professor of physiology at Frankfurt University in 1914, where he carried on his productive investigations into the chemistry of muscular contraction. Recognizing that muscle glycogen is not directly oxidized for energy, he helped to elaborate the metabolic pathways by which carbohydrate is degraded within the cell. This biochemical pattern, which bears his name, is characteristic of most living cells. Embden also stressed the significance of phosphoric acid in the intracellular metabolism of sugars. Other research contributions were in the area of fat   metabolism. He contributed, with G. Schmidt, to Handbuchder biologischen Arbeitsmethoden (1921–39) and edited, with others, Handbuch der normalen undpathologischen Physiologie (6 vols., 1925–29). (George H. Fried)
