Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • DNA

Anita B. Roberts mostly deals with Transforming growth factor, Transforming growth factor beta, Cell biology, Molecular biology and Growth factor. The concepts of her Transforming growth factor study are interwoven with issues in Epidermal growth factor and Cell growth. Her Transforming growth factor beta research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Immunology, Inflammation, Immune system, Cytokine and Cell type.

Anita B. Roberts combines subjects such as Wound healing, R-SMAD and In vivo with her study of Cell biology. Anita B. Roberts has researched Molecular biology in several fields, including Gene expression, Complementary DNA, Receptor, Receptor expression and Messenger RNA. Her work on Growth factor receptor inhibitor as part of general Growth factor research is frequently linked to Context, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science.

Her most cited work include:

  • Transforming growth factor beta. (2041 citations)
  • REGULATION OF IMMUNE RESPONSES BY TGF-β* (1712 citations)
  • Transforming growth factor beta 1 null mutation in mice causes excessive inflammatory response and early death. (1652 citations)

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

Her primary scientific interests are in Transforming growth factor, Molecular biology, Cell biology, Transforming growth factor beta and Internal medicine. Her Transforming growth factor research incorporates themes from Cell culture, Cancer research, Cell growth, Immunology and Growth factor. Her research on Molecular biology also deals with topics like

  • Transcription most often made with reference to Transcription factor,
  • Biochemistry together with Hamster.

Her studies in Cell biology integrate themes in fields like Wound healing, Receptor and R-SMAD. Her Transforming growth factor beta research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Immune system, Pathology, TGF beta signaling pathway, Peptide sequence and Gene isoform. Her study looks at the intersection of Internal medicine and topics like Endocrinology with Autocrine signalling, In vivo, Retinoic acid, Fibroblast and Cartilage.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Transforming growth factor (46.06%)
  • Molecular biology (33.03%)
  • Cell biology (32.12%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2002-2016)?

  • Transforming growth factor (46.06%)
  • Cell biology (32.12%)
  • Signal transduction (15.45%)

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

Anita B. Roberts focuses on Transforming growth factor, Cell biology, Signal transduction, Cancer research and SMAD. Her Transforming growth factor research incorporates elements of Wound healing, Immunology, Receptor, Molecular biology and Fibrosis. Her Molecular biology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cell growth and Protein kinase A.

Transforming growth factor beta and Phosphorylation are among the areas of Cell biology where the researcher is concentrating her efforts. Anita B. Roberts has included themes like Regulation of gene expression, Immediate early protein, Transforming growth factor, beta 3 and Growth factor in her Transforming growth factor beta study. Her Cancer research study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Endocrinology, Carcinogenesis, Internal medicine, Transplantation and Metastasis.

Between 2002 and 2016, her most popular works were:

  • Endothelial-to-mesenchymal transition contributes to cardiac fibrosis (1490 citations)
  • The two faces of transforming growth factor β in carcinogenesis (658 citations)
  • Targeted disruption of TGF-β1/Smad3 signaling protects against renal tubulointerstitial fibrosis induced by unilateral ureteral obstruction (650 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • DNA

Her main research concerns Transforming growth factor, Cancer research, Signal transduction, Pathology and Fibrosis. Her research in Transforming growth factor intersects with topics in Receptor and Immunology. Her Cancer research research includes themes of Internal medicine, Transplantation, Endocrinology and Transition.

In Pathology, she works on issues like Carcinogenesis, which are connected to Breast cancer, Transfection and Cell. Her work deals with themes such as Epithelial–mesenchymal transition, Extracellular matrix and Mesenchymal stem cell, which intersect with Fibrosis. Anita B. Roberts focuses mostly in the field of Transforming growth factor beta, narrowing it down to topics relating to Growth factor and, in certain cases, Wound healing, Immediate early protein and Candidate Tumor Suppressor Gene.
