Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Enzyme
  • Gene
  • Amino acid

Biochemistry, Photosynthesis, Botany, Arabidopsis and RuBisCO are his primary areas of study. Biliverdin, Oxygenase, Oxidative stress, Mutant and Ferredoxin are among the areas of Biochemistry where Akiho Yokota concentrates his study. He interconnects Environmental chemistry, Reactive oxygen species, Hydrogen peroxide and Chlamydomonas reinhardtii in the investigation of issues within Photosynthesis.

His Botany research integrates issues from Cyanobacteria, Synechococcus and Euglena gracilis. His Arabidopsis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Organelle and Vacuole. His work carried out in the field of RuBisCO brings together such families of science as Protein subunit and Bacillus subtilis.

His most cited work include:

  • Oxidative stress inhibits the repair of photodamage to the photosynthetic machinery. (413 citations)
  • Directed disruption of the tobacco ndhB gene impairs cyclic electron flow around photosystem I (357 citations)
  • The Arabidopsis Photomorphogenic Mutant hy1 Is Deficient in Phytochrome Chromophore Biosynthesis as a Result of a Mutation in a Plastid Heme Oxygenase (276 citations)

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

His main research concerns Biochemistry, Botany, Photosynthesis, Enzyme and RuBisCO. Biochemistry is represented through his Chloroplast, C4 photosynthesis, Metabolism, Metabolic pathway and Lyase research. His study in the field of Citrullus lanatus also crosses realms of Elongation.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Thylakoid, Electron transport chain, Fructose 1,6-bisphosphatase and NAD+ kinase in addition to Photosynthesis. His Enzyme research incorporates themes from Protein domain, Gene, Bacillus subtilis and Gene mutation. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Carbon fixation and Pyruvate carboxylase.

Between 2009 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A DEAD box protein is required for formation of a hidden break in Arabidopsis chloroplast 23S rRNA (61 citations)
  • A RuBisCO-mediated carbon metabolic pathway in methanogenic archaea (58 citations)
  • Responses of the photosynthetic electron transport system to excess light energy caused by water deficit in wild watermelon. (55 citations)

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

  • Enzyme
  • Gene
  • Amino acid

Akiho Yokota mostly deals with Biochemistry, Photosynthesis, Chloroplast, Genetically modified crops and Electron transport chain. His work on Biochemistry deals in particular with Adenosine triphosphate, Peptide sequence, Isozyme, Gene isoform and Chloroplast DNA. The various areas that Akiho Yokota examines in his Photosynthesis study include Autotroph, Pyruvate carboxylase, Metabolic pathway and Archaea.

His research in Chloroplast tackles topics such as Flaveria which are related to areas like Thylakoid, Cytochrome b6f complex and Photosystem I. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Genetically modified crops, Transplastomic plant is strongly linked to Yield. His Electron transport chain research includes elements of Vascular bundle, NAD+ kinase, Photoinhibition, Dehydrogenase and Photosystem.
