Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Chromosome

His primary areas of study are Molecular biology, RAD51, Homologous recombination, DNA repair and Cell biology. His Molecular biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Transgene, DNA, Transfection, Cell cycle and Fungal protein. Akira Shinohara works mostly in the field of RAD51, limiting it down to topics relating to Replication protein A and, in certain cases, DNA repair protein XRCC4 and DMC1, as a part of the same area of interest.

Akira Shinohara interconnects Genetic recombination and Saccharomyces cerevisiae in the investigation of issues within Homologous recombination. His research investigates the connection between DNA repair and topics such as DNA damage that intersect with problems in Ataxia Telangiectasia Mutated Proteins, Cell cycle checkpoint and DNA supercoil. In Cell biology, Akira Shinohara works on issues like FLP-FRT recombination, which are connected to Site-specific recombination.

His most cited work include:

  • Rad51 protein involved in repair and recombination in S. cerevisiae is a RecA-like protein (1071 citations)
  • Homologous recombination and non‐homologous end‐joining pathways of DNA double‐strand break repair have overlapping roles in the maintenance of chromosomal integrity in vertebrate cells (1064 citations)
  • Rad51‐deficient vertebrate cells accumulate chromosomal breaks prior to cell death (719 citations)

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

Akira Shinohara mainly investigates Cell biology, Homologous recombination, RAD51, Meiosis and Genetics. He has researched Cell biology in several fields, including Histone, Cohesin, DNA damage and Chromosome segregation. His work carried out in the field of Homologous recombination brings together such families of science as Replication protein A and Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

As part of his studies on RAD51, he often connects relevant areas like Molecular biology. His Molecular biology course of study focuses on Ataxia Telangiectasia Mutated Proteins and Ataxia-telangiectasia. His Meiosis study combines topics in areas such as SUN domain, Homologous chromosome and Mutant.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (52.25%)
  • Homologous recombination (53.15%)
  • RAD51 (48.65%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Cell biology (52.25%)
  • Meiosis (39.64%)
  • Homologous recombination (53.15%)

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

His main research concerns Cell biology, Meiosis, Homologous recombination, DNA damage and Mitosis. His Cell biology study incorporates themes from DNA, Prophase, Cohesin and Chromosome segregation. His Meiosis research is multidisciplinary, relying on both SUN domain, Homologous chromosome, Mutant and Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

His Mutant study also includes fields such as

  • Synaptonemal complex and related Cell division control protein 4, Cullin, Ubiquitin ligase and Genetic recombination,
  • Chromosome which connect with Ectopic recombination and Bivalent. His research on DNA damage focuses in particular on RAD51. His work in the fields of RAD51, such as DMC1, intersects with other areas such as AAA proteins.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Molecular Camouflage of Plasmodium falciparum Merozoites by Binding of Host Vitronectin to P47 Fragment of SERA5 (19 citations)
  • Meiosis-specific prophase-like pathway controls cleavage-independent release of cohesin by Wapl phosphorylation. (17 citations)
  • Human RAD51 paralogue SWSAP1 fosters RAD51 filament by regulating the anti-recombinase FIGNL1 AAA+ ATPase. (14 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Chromosome

Akira Shinohara focuses on Cell biology, DNA damage, Meiosis, RAD51 and Homologous recombination. The various areas that Akira Shinohara examines in his Cell biology study include Host protein, Blood proteins and Antigen. His DNA damage study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Mutant and Meiotic chromosome segregation.

His RAD51 study is concerned with the field of DNA as a whole. The concepts of his Homologous recombination study are interwoven with issues in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Biophysics, DNA repair, Protein structure and Condensin. His study on Saccharomyces cerevisiae is covered under Genetics.
