ABSTRACT
Skou, Jens Christian (1918-) is a Danish physiologist who won half the 1997 Nobel Prize in chemistry for his pioneering work on an enzyme (a substance that speeds up chemical reactions in living cells) involved in the process of energy conversion in living organisms. American chemist Paul Delos Boyer and British chemist John Ernest Walker shared the other half of the prize.
