His primary areas of investigation include Sperm, Cell biology, Capacitation, Zona pellucida and Biochemistry. Brett Nixon is studying Epididymis, which is a component of Sperm. His study in Cell biology focuses on Phosphorylation in particular.
He combines subjects such as Spermatozoon, Cellular differentiation, Immunology, Tyrosine phosphorylation and Oocyte with his study of Capacitation. As part of the same scientific family, he usually focuses on Tyrosine phosphorylation, concentrating on Endocrinology and intersecting with Chromatin. The various areas that he examines in his Zona pellucida study include Lipid raft, Acrosome reaction, Sperm plasma membrane and Gamete.
His main research concerns Cell biology, Sperm, Capacitation, Epididymis and Oocyte. His Cell biology research includes themes of Oxidative stress, Genetics and Acrosome reaction. Folliculogenesis is closely connected to Endocrinology in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Sperm.
The study incorporates disciplines such as Heat shock protein, Immunology, Phosphorylation and Reproductive technology in addition to Capacitation. His study on Epididymosome is often connected to Monotreme as part of broader study in Epididymis. His Oocyte research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Gamete and DNA repair.
Brett Nixon spends much of his time researching Cell biology, Sperm, Epididymis, Oxidative stress and Capacitation. His specific area of interest is Cell biology, where Brett Nixon studies Oocyte. His research in Sperm is mostly concerned with Sperm motility.
Brett Nixon works mostly in the field of Epididymis, limiting it down to topics relating to RNA and, in certain cases, microRNA, as a part of the same area of interest. His research in Oxidative stress intersects with topics in Andrology, Male infertility, Infertility and DNA damage. His Capacitation study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Acrosome reaction, Signal transduction and Phosphorylation.
Brett Nixon mainly investigates Cell biology, Sperm, Oxidative stress, Germline and Epigenetics. The Cell biology study combines topics in areas such as Epididymis, Downregulation and upregulation and Spermatogenesis. His Sperm study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Serine, Phosphorylation, Crocodile, Developmental biology and Human fertilization.
His work on Lipid peroxidation as part of general Oxidative stress research is often related to Context, thus linking different fields of science. His Germline research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Premature ovarian failure, DNA protection, DNA repair and Oocyte, Embryo. His work carried out in the field of Epigenetics brings together such families of science as Reprogramming, Inheritance, PTEN and Genomics.
