Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Enzyme

His primary areas of investigation include Cell biology, Molecular biology, Cellular differentiation, Myocyte and Skeletal muscle. His Cell biology study which covers In vitro that intersects with Inhibitory postsynaptic potential and Period. The Molecular biology study combines topics in areas such as Duchenne muscular dystrophy and Untranslated region.

David Yaffe usually deals with Cellular differentiation and limits it to topics linked to Cell culture and Cell division. His Myocyte study combines topics in areas such as Multinucleate, Cell fusion and Immunology. His studies deal with areas such as Peptide sequence, Gene expression and Actin as well as Skeletal muscle.

His most cited work include:

  • Serial passaging and differentiation of myogenic cells isolated from dystrophic mouse muscle (1675 citations)
  • The nucleotide sequence of the rat cytoplasmic β–actin gene (946 citations)
  • Retention of differentiation potentialities during prolonged cultivation of myogenic cells (813 citations)

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

David Yaffe mainly focuses on Molecular biology, Cell biology, Gene, Skeletal muscle and Dystrophin. His study in Molecular biology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Gene expression, RNA, Messenger RNA, Untranslated region and Myocyte. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including In vitro, Cellular differentiation, Anatomy, Retina and Dystroglycans.

In his research on the topic of Cellular differentiation, Cell division and Cell is strongly related with Cell culture. David Yaffe has included themes like Myosin, Cardiac muscle and Actin in his Skeletal muscle study. His Dystrophin study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Phenotype, Promoter and Gene isoform.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Molecular biology (40.20%)
  • Cell biology (31.37%)
  • Gene (25.49%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2003-2019)?

  • Cell biology (31.37%)
  • Dystrophin (22.55%)
  • Glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (5.88%)

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

His primary areas of study are Cell biology, Dystrophin, Glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor, Internal medicine and Sciatic nerve injury. His Cell biology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Phenotype and Utrophin. Research on Genetics and Duchenne muscular dystrophy is a part of his Dystrophin study.

The various areas that David Yaffe examines in his Internal medicine study include Endocrinology, Gene knockdown and Drosophila Protein. His studies in Sciatic nerve injury integrate themes in fields like Progenitor cell and Human muscle. His studies deal with areas such as Myocyte and Molecular biology as well as Transcription factor.

Between 2003 and 2019, his most popular works were:

  • Dissecting muscle and neuronal disorders in a Drosophila model of muscular dystrophy. (109 citations)
  • Dystrophin deficiency in Drosophila reduces lifespan and causes a dilated cardiomyopathy phenotype. (91 citations)
  • Role of Mental Retardation-Associated Dystrophin-Gene Product Dp71 in Excitatory Synapse Organization, Synaptic Plasticity and Behavioral Functions (73 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Enzyme

David Yaffe mainly investigates Dystrophin, Cell biology, Molecular biology, Myogenesis and Phenotype. His studies in Dystrophin-associated protein complex, Dystrobrevin, Syntrophin, Sarcoglycans and Utrophin are all subfields of Dystrophin research. He integrates many fields, such as Cell biology and Neuroglia, in his works.

David Yaffe has researched Molecular biology in several fields, including MyoD, Cellular differentiation, Amniotic stem cells, Transdifferentiation and Myosin. His research integrates issues of Promoter, Chromatin immunoprecipitation, Transcription factor and Gene product in his study of Myogenesis. His Phenotype study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Dystroglycans, Muscle degeneration and Muscular dystrophy.
