Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Enzyme
  • Gene
  • Amino acid

Francisco Solano mainly investigates Biochemistry, Tyrosinase, Enzyme, Melanin and Catechol oxidase. His work on Laccase, Enzyme assay and Oxidase test is typically connected to Copper protein as part of general Biochemistry study, connecting several disciplines of science. His Tyrosinase research incorporates elements of Melanosome, Stereochemistry and Active site.

His Enzyme research includes themes of Cell culture, Tyrosine and Mutant. The concepts of his Melanin study are interwoven with issues in Redox and Pigment. His Dopachrome tautomerase research integrates issues from Molecular biology and Endocrinology.

His most cited work include:

  • Hypopigmenting agents: an updated review on biological, chemical and clinical aspects (530 citations)
  • Tyrosinase related protein 1 (TRP1) functions as a DHICA oxidase in melanin biosynthesis. (385 citations)
  • A new enzymatic function in the melanogenic pathway : the 5,6-dihydroxyindole-2-carboxylic acid oxidase activity of tyrosinase-related protein-1 (TRP1) (231 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Biochemistry, Tyrosinase, Enzyme, Melanin and Dopachrome tautomerase. His research related to Tyrosine, DHICA, Mutant, Oxidase test and Catechol oxidase might be considered part of Biochemistry. His work deals with themes such as Active site, Molecular biology, Melanosome, Stereochemistry and Tyrosine hydroxylase, which intersect with Tyrosinase.

Francisco Solano combines subjects such as Cell culture and Melanocyte with his study of Enzyme. His Melanin study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Pigment and Glutathione. Francisco Solano works mostly in the field of Dopachrome tautomerase, limiting it down to topics relating to Dopachrome and, in certain cases, Photochemistry, as a part of the same area of interest.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Biochemistry (67.18%)
  • Tyrosinase (57.25%)
  • Enzyme (41.98%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2008-2020)?

  • Biochemistry (67.18%)
  • Pigment (6.87%)
  • Melanin (26.72%)

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

Francisco Solano mainly focuses on Biochemistry, Pigment, Melanin, Tyrosinase and Enzyme. His Biochemistry study frequently links to related topics such as Anthraquinone. His Pigment study also includes

  • Cell biology and Melanosome most often made with reference to Oxidative stress,
  • Melanogenesis Pathway, which have a strong connection to Buthionine sulfoximine, Hydrogen peroxide, Glutathione and Melanin synthesis.

In his research, Human skin, Molecule and Antioxidant is intimately related to Redox, which falls under the overarching field of Melanin. His Tyrosinase study incorporates themes from Ralstonia solanacearum, Active site, Peptide sequence, Substrate and Biotransformation. His study in Enzyme is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Operon and Gene, Recombinant DNA.

Between 2008 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Melanins: Skin Pigments and Much More—Types, Structural Models, Biological Functions, and Formation Routes (203 citations)
  • New insights into the active site structure and catalytic mechanism of tyrosinase and its related proteins. (197 citations)
  • The evolution of eu- and pheomelanic traits may respond to an economy of pigments related to environmental oxidative stress (59 citations)

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

  • Enzyme
  • Gene
  • Amino acid

Pigment, Melanin, Biochemistry, Feather and Biological evolution are his primary areas of study. The various areas that Francisco Solano examines in his Melanin study include Biomolecule, Polymer, Biosensor, Mussel and Self-healing hydrogels. As part of his studies on Biochemistry, Francisco Solano frequently links adjacent subjects like Redox.

His Feather research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Chromatography, Chemical Cleavage and Non invasive. His studies deal with areas such as Melanogenesis Pathway, Melanosome, Botany and Cell biology as well as Biological evolution. His Botany research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Oxidative stress, Integumentary system, Function, The integument and Plumage.
