Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Chromosome

Claudio E. Sunkel focuses on Cell biology, Molecular biology, Kinetochore, Spindle apparatus and Prophase. He works on Cell biology which deals in particular with Microtubule. His work carried out in the field of Molecular biology brings together such families of science as Chromatin, Transcription, Gene, Anaphase and RNA polymerase II.

His Kinetochore study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Metaphase and Centromere. Claudio E. Sunkel usually deals with Spindle apparatus and limits it to topics linked to Mitosis and Centrosome and Polo kinase. In his research on the topic of Prophase, Condensin and Cohesin is strongly related with Sister chromatids.

His most cited work include:

  • polo, a mitotic mutant of Drosophila displaying abnormal spindle poles. (470 citations)
  • polo encodes a protein kinase homolog required for mitosis in Drosophila. (348 citations)
  • The 55 kd regulatory subunit of Drosophila protein phosphatase 2A is required for anaphase (189 citations)

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

Claudio E. Sunkel mostly deals with Cell biology, Mitosis, Kinetochore, Spindle checkpoint and Spindle apparatus. His Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Prophase, Anaphase, Centrosome and Chromosome segregation. His studies deal with areas such as Molecular biology, Mitotic exit, Interphase and Polo kinase as well as Mitosis.

The concepts of his Kinetochore study are interwoven with issues in Metaphase and Centromere. He works mostly in the field of Spindle checkpoint, limiting it down to topics relating to Carcinogenesis and, in certain cases, Progenitor cell, as a part of the same area of interest. His work in Spindle apparatus covers topics such as Sister chromatids which are related to areas like Condensin and Chromatid.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (111.04%)
  • Mitosis (72.73%)
  • Kinetochore (66.88%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Cell biology (111.04%)
  • Mitosis (72.73%)
  • Spindle checkpoint (53.25%)

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

His main research concerns Cell biology, Mitosis, Spindle checkpoint, Kinetochore and Stem cell. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Spindle apparatus and Gene. His Spindle apparatus study combines topics in areas such as Metaphase, Cell cycle checkpoint and RNA interference.

His Mitosis study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cytoplasm, Chromosome segregation, Prophase, Phosphorylation and Mitotic exit. His Spindle checkpoint research integrates issues from Gene silencing, Anaphase and Protein phosphatase 1. His Kinetochore study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Microtubule.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Aurora A triggers Lgl cortical release during symmetric division to control planar spindle orientation. (62 citations)
  • Aurora A triggers Lgl cortical release during symmetric division to control planar spindle orientation. (62 citations)
  • Protein Phosphatase 1 inactivates Mps1 to ensure efficient Spindle Assembly Checkpoint silencing (36 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Chromosome

Claudio E. Sunkel mainly investigates Cell biology, Mitosis, Phosphorylation, Cytoplasm and Mitotic exit. Claudio E. Sunkel combines subjects such as Centrosome, Prophase, Anaphase and Kinetochore with his study of Cell biology. His Centrosome research includes elements of Carcinogenesis, Aneuploidy, Stem cell and Cell growth.

Prophase and SCRIB are two areas of study in which Claudio E. Sunkel engages in interdisciplinary work. Claudio E. Sunkel has included themes like Spindle apparatus, Cell cycle checkpoint and Metaphase in his Anaphase study. His primary area of study in Kinetochore is in the field of Spindle checkpoint.
