Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Gene expression

His primary areas of study are Molecular biology, Cell biology, Chromatin, Histone code and Genetics. His Molecular biology research incorporates themes from Transcription factor II A, Transcription factor II B, General transcription factor, RNA polymerase II and RNA polymerase II holoenzyme. The concepts of his Cell biology study are interwoven with issues in Histone H2B, Ubiquitin ligase, Histone monoubiquitination, Monoubiquitination and XIST.

His research ties Histone and Chromatin together. The Histone code study combines topics in areas such as Histone methyltransferase, Histone octamer, Histone H2A, Histone H1 and Histone methylation. His Heterochromatin, Regulation of gene expression and ChIA-PET study in the realm of Genetics connects with subjects such as GPS2.

His most cited work include:

  • The Polycomb complex PRC2 and its mark in life (2078 citations)
  • Transcription regulation by histone methylation: interplay between different covalent modifications of the core histone tails (1287 citations)
  • Histone methyltransferase activity associated with a human multiprotein complex containing the Enhancer of Zeste protein (1283 citations)

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

His main research concerns Cell biology, Molecular biology, Chromatin, Genetics and Histone. His Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Histone code, RNA, Protein subunit, Transcription and DNA replication. Within one scientific family, Danny Reinberg focuses on topics pertaining to Histone octamer under Histone code, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Histone methylation, Histone H2A and Histone H1.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Histone methyltransferase, Transcription factor II A, TATA box, RNA polymerase II and Transcription factor II D in addition to Molecular biology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Regulation of gene expression and Gene expression. He usually deals with Histone and limits it to topics linked to Epigenetics and DNA methylation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (50.00%)
  • Molecular biology (43.81%)
  • Chromatin (46.39%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Chromatin (46.39%)
  • Cell biology (50.00%)
  • PRC2 (15.46%)

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

Danny Reinberg focuses on Chromatin, Cell biology, PRC2, Histone and Epigenetics. Danny Reinberg focuses mostly in the field of Chromatin, narrowing it down to matters related to Transcription and, in some cases, DNA and Genome. His study in Cell biology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both CTCF, Cell division, Regulation of gene expression, Gene and Heterochromatin.

His PRC2 research incorporates elements of Mutation and Polycomb Repressive Complex 2. His study in Molecular biology extends to Histone with its themes. His research integrates issues of Computational biology and Function in his study of Epigenetics.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • RNA Binding to CBP Stimulates Histone Acetylation and Transcription. (168 citations)
  • Capturing the Onset of PRC2-Mediated Repressive Domain Formation. (109 citations)
  • An Engineered orco Mutation Produces Aberrant Social Behavior and Defective Neural Development in Ants (105 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Gene expression

Danny Reinberg mostly deals with Chromatin, Cell biology, Histone, PRC2 and Gene expression. His research in Chromatin intersects with topics in Enhancer, CTCF and Mutant. His Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Transcription, Nucleosome, Epigenetics, DNA replication and Methionine.

Danny Reinberg combines subjects such as Molecular biology and DNA with his study of Transcription. His work in Histone tackles topics such as Protein subunit which are related to areas like Histone methylation. His PRC2 research includes elements of Epigenomics and Allosteric regulation.
