Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Cell membrane

Cell biology, Biochemistry, Cholesterol, Endoplasmic reticulum and Caveolae are her primary areas of study. Her studies deal with areas such as Membrane and Membrane protein as well as Cell biology. Her research in Cholesterol intersects with topics in Cell, Sphingolipid and Human disease.

Her research integrates issues of Lipid droplet and Hepatocyte in her study of Endoplasmic reticulum. Her Lipid raft study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cell membrane and Biological membrane. The Biological membrane study combines topics in areas such as Biophysics and Membrane lipids.

Her most cited work include:

  • Functional rafts in cell membranes (8041 citations)
  • A hexanucleotide repeat expansion in C9ORF72 is the cause of chromosome 9p21-linked ALS-FTD (2859 citations)
  • How Cells Handle Cholesterol (1004 citations)

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

Her primary areas of investigation include Cell biology, Biochemistry, Cholesterol, Lipid droplet and Endoplasmic reticulum. Her Cell biology research incorporates elements of Endocytic cycle and Ceramide. Her study on Oxysterol-binding protein, Reverse cholesterol transport, Aspartylglucosaminidase and Fatty acid is often connected to Liver X receptor as part of broader study in Biochemistry.

Her study in Cholesterol is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Membrane and Metabolism. Her research on Membrane focuses in particular on Cell membrane. Elina Ikonen interconnects Integral membrane protein, Biophysics, Organelle and Lipid metabolism in the investigation of issues within Lipid droplet.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (66.67%)
  • Biochemistry (34.57%)
  • Cholesterol (35.80%)

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

  • Cell biology (66.67%)
  • Lipid droplet (30.04%)
  • Cholesterol (35.80%)

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

Elina Ikonen focuses on Cell biology, Lipid droplet, Cholesterol, Endoplasmic reticulum and Seipin. Her Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Receptor, Transmembrane protein and Lysosome. Her work carried out in the field of Lipid droplet brings together such families of science as OSBP, Complementary DNA, Locus, Lipid metabolism and Organelle.

Her Cholesterol study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Plant lipid transfer proteins, Membrane and Metabolism. Elina Ikonen has researched Membrane in several fields, including Endocytosis, Gene and Scavenger receptor. Her Seipin research overlaps with other disciplines such as Biogenesis and Biophysics.

Between 2016 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Aster Proteins Facilitate Nonvesicular Plasma Membrane to ER Cholesterol Transport in Mammalian Cells. (75 citations)
  • Aster Proteins Facilitate Nonvesicular Plasma Membrane to ER Cholesterol Transport in Mammalian Cells. (75 citations)
  • Seipin Facilitates Triglyceride Flow to Lipid Droplet and Counteracts Droplet Ripening via Endoplasmic Reticulum Contact (58 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • DNA

Her primary areas of study are Cell biology, Lipid droplet, Biogenesis, Seipin and Endoplasmic reticulum. The Cell biology study combines topics in areas such as Receptor and Cholesterol, Sterol. Her Lipid droplet research incorporates elements of Cell, Lipid metabolism, Organelle and Cancer research.

Her Biogenesis research integrates issues from Biophysics and Bilayer, Membrane. Her Biophysics study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Phosphatidic acid and Organelle biogenesis. Her Membrane research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Lysosome, Membrane potential and Late endosome.
