Schultze, Max Johann Sigismund (1825–1874)

German biologist. He studied the vertebrate nervous system, the electric organs of fish, and the anatomy of worms and molluscs. Schultze's most important work was the identification of a cell as an organism containing both nucleus and protoplasm, and his recognition that protoplasm is a basic substance of plant and animal cells.
