Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Enzyme
  • Biochemistry
  • Amino acid

Christian B. Anfinsen focuses on Biochemistry, Ribonuclease, Stereochemistry, Enzyme and Amino acid. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Molecular biology and Biochemistry. His Ribonuclease study incorporates themes from Globular protein, Protein tertiary structure and Nuclease.

The various areas that Christian B. Anfinsen examines in his Stereochemistry study include RNase P, Crystallography, Disulfide bond and Molecule. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Enzyme, Affinity electrophoresis is strongly linked to Chromatography. In his research on the topic of Hemeprotein, Statistical potential is strongly related with Folding.

His most cited work include:

  • Principles that Govern the Folding of Protein Chains (5201 citations)
  • [31] Affinity chromatography (1433 citations)
  • Selective enzyme purification by affinity chromatography (891 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Biochemistry, Ribonuclease, Stereochemistry, Enzyme and Nuclease. His Biochemistry study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Molecular biology. His research integrates issues of Microsome, RNase P and Disulfide bond in his study of Ribonuclease.

His research in Stereochemistry intersects with topics in Yield, Aspartic acid, Active site, Hydrolysis and Molecule. His Enzyme research focuses on Chromatography and how it connects with Affinity chromatography. His Nuclease research integrates issues from Residue, Crystallography, Extracellular, Cyanogen bromide and Trypsin.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Biochemistry (53.30%)
  • Ribonuclease (29.95%)
  • Stereochemistry (22.84%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1969-2006)?

  • Biochemistry (53.30%)
  • Stereochemistry (22.84%)
  • Nuclease (16.24%)

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

Christian B. Anfinsen mainly focuses on Biochemistry, Stereochemistry, Nuclease, Staphylococcal Nuclease and Molecular biology. Biochemistry is closely attributed to Interferon in his study. The Stereochemistry study combines topics in areas such as Yield, Covalent bond, Aspartic acid, Catalysis and Glutamic acid.

His work carried out in the field of Nuclease brings together such families of science as Reagent, Praseodymium, Crystallography, Residue and Binding site. The concepts of his Molecular biology study are interwoven with issues in Epitope, Antibody, Immunochemistry and Antigen. Christian B. Anfinsen combines subjects such as Biophysics, Statistical potential and Native protein with his study of Folding.

Between 1969 and 2006, his most popular works were:

  • Principles that Govern the Folding of Protein Chains (5201 citations)
  • [31] Affinity chromatography (1433 citations)
  • On the role of heme in the formation of the structure of cytochrome c. (329 citations)

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

  • Enzyme
  • Biochemistry
  • Amino acid

His primary scientific interests are in Biochemistry, Nuclease, Folding, Enzyme and Crystallography. His Biochemistry research includes themes of Molecular biology, Cell culture and Interferon. His research investigates the connection between Nuclease and topics such as Protein structure that intersect with issues in Antiserum.

His Folding research incorporates elements of Protein structure prediction, De novo protein structure prediction, Biophysics and Levinthal's paradox. His work deals with themes such as Stereochemistry and Sequence, which intersect with Enzyme. Christian B. Anfinsen usually deals with Affinity chromatography and limits it to topics linked to Macromolecule and Chromatography.
