Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Enzyme
  • Botany
  • Gene

Alfred J. Keys focuses on Biochemistry, RuBisCO, Photosynthesis, Photorespiration and Botany. His research on Biochemistry frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Hordeum vulgare. His RuBisCO research includes elements of Carbon dioxide and Pyruvate carboxylase.

His Pyruvate carboxylase study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Oxygenase and Efflux. His study on Carbon fixation is often connected to Specificity factor as part of broader study in Photosynthesis. His Photorespiration research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Electron transport chain, Glycine cleavage system, Serine, Phosphorylation and Oxygen.

His most cited work include:

  • Photorespiratory nitrogen cycle (454 citations)
  • Rubisco Activity: Effects of Drought Stress (353 citations)
  • Manipulation of Rubisco: the amount, activity, function and regulation (298 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Biochemistry, RuBisCO, Botany, Photosynthesis and Photorespiration. His RuBisCO research includes themes of Catalysis and Active site. His research in Botany intersects with topics in Nitrate and Horticulture.

His study in Photosynthesis is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Assimilation, Serine, Carbon dioxide and Agronomy. His Photorespiration research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Glycine, Biophysics and Ammonia. The concepts of his Pyruvate carboxylase study are interwoven with issues in Oxygenase, Limonium and Carboxylation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Biochemistry (47.77%)
  • RuBisCO (30.36%)
  • Botany (29.91%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2004-2014)?

  • Botany (29.91%)
  • Agronomy (11.61%)
  • RuBisCO (30.36%)

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

Alfred J. Keys mainly focuses on Botany, Agronomy, RuBisCO, Photosynthesis and Biotechnology. When carried out as part of a general Botany research project, his work on Paspalum dilatatum, Photorespiration and Medicinal plants is frequently linked to work in Cysteine proteinases, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. The various areas that he examines in his Agronomy study include Plant disease resistance and Fight-or-flight response.

RuBisCO is a subfield of Biochemistry that Alfred J. Keys tackles. His Photosynthesis research incorporates elements of Solanum, Food science and Carboxylation. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Genetically modified crops and Fungicide.

Between 2004 and 2014, his most popular works were:

  • Rubisco specificity factor tends to be larger in plant species from drier habitats and in species with persistent leaves (217 citations)
  • Rubisco regulation: a role for inhibitors (188 citations)
  • Expanding knowledge of the Rubisco kinetics variability in plant species: environmental and evolutionary trends (96 citations)

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

  • Enzyme
  • Botany
  • Gene

His primary scientific interests are in Botany, Photosynthesis, RuBisCO, Paspalum dilatatum and Cynodon dactylon. His biological study focuses on Photorespiration. His Photosynthesis study combines topics in areas such as Solanum and Food science.

His RuBisCO study is concerned with the field of Biochemistry as a whole. Alfred J. Keys is interested in Enzyme, which is a field of Biochemistry. His work deals with themes such as Japonica, Zoysia japonica and Stomatal conductance, which intersect with Cynodon dactylon.
