ABSTRACT
Ochoa, Severo (1905-1993), a Spanish-born American biochemist shared the 1959 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine with Arthur Kornberg for discovering an enzyme that can synthesize RNA (ribonucleic acid). Nucleic acids, complex chemicals found in the cells of all living things, play essential roles in cell development and heredity. Ochoa's discovery was one of the linchpins of modern molecular biology.
