Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Cytoskeleton
  • Cell membrane

Fred Chang focuses on Cell biology, Cytokinesis, Mitosis, MDia1 and Nucleus. His work in Cell biology addresses subjects such as Cleavage furrow, which are connected to disciplines such as Septin. His biological study deals with issues like Actin remodeling, which deal with fields such as Arp2/3 complex and Profilin.

He has researched Nucleus in several fields, including Pom1 and Interphase. Fred Chang focuses mostly in the field of Microtubule, narrowing it down to topics relating to Cytoskeleton and, in certain cases, Schizosaccharomyces pombe, Protein kinase A, Spindle pole body, Cell nucleus and Cell cycle. His work carried out in the field of Actin brings together such families of science as Peptide sequence, GTPase and Mutant.

His most cited work include:

  • A Mechanism for Nuclear Positioning in Fission Yeast Based on Microtubule Pushing (401 citations)
  • CDC12P, A PROTEIN REQUIRED FOR CYTOKINESIS IN FISSION YEAST, IS A COMPONENT OF THE CELL DIVISION RING AND INTERACTS WITH PROFILIN (378 citations)
  • Identification of a gene necessary for cell cycle arrest by a negative growth factor of yeast: FAR1 is an inhibitor of a G1 cyclin, CLN2 (316 citations)

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

Fred Chang spends much of his time researching Cell biology, Cytokinesis, Microtubule, Schizosaccharomyces pombe and Mitosis. He combines subjects such as Formins, Schizosaccharomyces and Cell polarity with his study of Cell biology. His research investigates the connection between Cytokinesis and topics such as Cell cycle that intersect with issues in Cell growth.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Microtubule organizing center, Cytoplasm and Polymerase. As a member of one scientific family, Fred Chang mostly works in the field of Schizosaccharomyces pombe, focusing on Biophysics and, on occasion, Cell membrane and Cell wall. His Mitosis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Spindle apparatus and Spindle pole body.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (88.55%)
  • Cytokinesis (46.56%)
  • Microtubule (38.93%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Biophysics (20.61%)
  • Microtubule (38.93%)
  • Cytoplasm (17.56%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Biophysics, Microtubule, Cytoplasm, Cell biology and Tubulin. Fred Chang focuses mostly in the field of Biophysics, narrowing it down to matters related to Schizosaccharomyces pombe and, in some cases, Centrosome, Gamma-tubulin complex, Microtubule nucleation and Microtubule organizing center. He has researched Cytoplasm in several fields, including Cell, Cell growth, Mitosis, Yeast and In vivo.

His Mitosis study combines topics in areas such as Reprogramming, NODAL and Cell division, Cytokinesis. His work in the fields of Myosin overlaps with other areas such as ESCRT. His Tubulin research incorporates themes from Microtubule-associated protein and Polymerase.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The outer membrane is an essential load-bearing element in Gram-negative bacteria. (142 citations)
  • The XMAP215 Ortholog Alp14 Promotes Microtubule Nucleation in Fission Yeast. (42 citations)
  • Reprogramming Cdr2-Dependent Geometry-Based Cell Size Control in Fission Yeast (24 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Cell membrane
  • Biochemistry

His primary scientific interests are in Fission, Microtubule, Biophysics, Cell biology and DNA repair. His Microtubule research includes elements of Microtubule nucleation, Gamma-tubulin complex, Centrosome and Fungal protein. His studies in Biophysics integrate themes in fields like Peptidoglycan, Schizosaccharomyces pombe and Cell membrane.

His Schizosaccharomyces pombe research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Microtubule organizing center, Reprogramming and Mitosis. Fred Chang specializes in Cell biology, namely Homeostasis. The DNA repair study combines topics in areas such as Establishment of sister chromatid cohesion, Interphase and Yeast.
