Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Bacteria
  • Genetics

Åke Forsberg mainly investigates Microbiology, Virulence, Yersinia pseudotuberculosis, Secretion and Cell biology. His research on Microbiology also deals with topics like

  • Yersinia which is related to area like Effector,
  • Enterobacteriaceae together with Plague vaccine and Toxin. His Virulence research includes elements of Plasmid, Secretory protein and Kinase.

His Yersinia pseudotuberculosis study also includes

  • Molecular biology together with Trans-acting,
  • Gene expression which connect with Operon and Regulation of gene expression. Åke Forsberg works mostly in the field of Secretion, limiting it down to topics relating to Chaperone and, in certain cases, Transcriptional Activator, Cell contact, Computational biology and Bacterial cell structure. His Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Type three secretion system and Microfilament.

His most cited work include:

  • Intracellular targeting of the Yersinia YopE cytotoxin in mammalian cells induces actin microfilament disruption. (335 citations)
  • The cytotoxic protein YopE of Yersinia obstructs the primary host defence. (320 citations)
  • A secreted protein kinase of Yersinia pseudotuberculosis is an indispensable virulence determinant. (301 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Microbiology, Secretion, Virulence, Yersinia pseudotuberculosis and Yersinia. His Microbiology study incorporates themes from Francisella tularensis, Bacteria and Yersinia pestis, Enterobacteriaceae, LcrV. His Secretion research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Chromosomal translocation, Type three secretion system and Effector, Chaperone, Cell biology.

His studies deal with areas such as Mutation, Plasmid, Phagocytosis and Virology as well as Virulence. His Yersinia pseudotuberculosis study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Operon, Mutant, Regulation of gene expression and Molecular biology. Åke Forsberg combines subjects such as Cell, Pathogen, Periplasmic space and Intracellular with his study of Yersinia.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Microbiology (94.12%)
  • Secretion (67.23%)
  • Virulence (58.82%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2009-2019)?

  • Microbiology (94.12%)
  • Secretion (67.23%)
  • Yersinia pseudotuberculosis (55.46%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His scientific interests lie mostly in Microbiology, Secretion, Yersinia pseudotuberculosis, Virulence and Yersinia. His Microbiology study combines topics in areas such as Francisella tularensis, Type three secretion system and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Bacteria. His Secretion research integrates issues from Effector, Cell biology and LcrV.

Åke Forsberg has included themes like Host cell membrane and Intracellular in his LcrV study. His study in Yersinia pseudotuberculosis is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Transcriptome, Mutant, Gram-negative bacteria and Chromosomal translocation. His Yersinia study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Sequence motif, AB toxin and Site-directed mutagenesis.

Between 2009 and 2019, his most popular works were:

  • Type III secretion in Yersinia: injectisome or not? (40 citations)
  • O-Linked Glycosylation of the PilA Pilin Protein of Francisella tularensis: Identification of the Endogenous Protein-Targeting Oligosaccharyltransferase and Characterization of the Native Oligosaccharide (37 citations)
  • Iron content differs between Francisella tularensis subspecies tularensis and subspecies holarctica strains and correlates to their susceptibility to H(2)O(2)-induced killing. (35 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Gene
  • Bacteria
  • Genetics

Åke Forsberg mainly investigates Microbiology, Virulence, Francisella tularensis, Secretion and Pilin. His studies in Virulence integrate themes in fields like Mutation and Tularemia. As part of one scientific family, he deals mainly with the area of Francisella tularensis, narrowing it down to issues related to the Glycosylation, and often Virulence factor and Peptide sequence.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Toxin, Yersinia Infections, AB toxin and Effector in addition to Secretion. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Yersinia, Plasma protein binding, Mutant and Yersinia pseudotuberculosis. His Pilin study which covers Francisella that intersects with Pseudogene, Human pathogen and Protein targeting.
