ABSTRACT
Lynen, Feodor (1911-1976) was a German biochemist who studied how cells produce cholesterol and lipids, which are fatty substances. Lynen's experiments revealed the roles of certain enzymes, which are molecules that speed up chemical reactions, and the vitamin biotin in the formation of lipids. For this work, Lynen was awarded the 1964 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine, which he shared with Konrad Emil Bloch, a German-born American biochemist.
