Arthur Kornberg, dead at 89

Stanford University Hospital is reporting that Arthur Kornberg, the 1959 Nobel Laureate in Physiology or Medicine, has died aged 89. Kornberg received recognition for his discovery of "the mechanisms in the biological synthesis of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA)". His son, Roger, received his own Nobel (Chemistry) last year.

    Only a little while ago, I read that Dr Kornberg had passed away. May he rest in peace. I still have his book “For The Love of Enzymes,” gifted to me by another passionate enzymologist, late Dr Jorge E Churchich.
