Erwin Chargaff is a biochemist who discovered the base-pairing regularities or "complementarity relationships" in deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). He also disproved the tetranucleotide hypothesis; demonstrated the existence of a large number of different DNA species; and created the first descriptions of hypochromicity, hyperchromicity, and the denaturation of a DNA. In addition, he did research on blood coagulation, lipids and lipoproteins, metabolism of amino acids and inositol, and biosynthesis of phosphotransferases.
