Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Cell membrane
  • Biochemistry
  • Lipid bilayer

G. van Meer mainly investigates Cell biology, Golgi apparatus, Cell membrane, Basolateral plasma membrane and Membrane lipids. G. van Meer focuses mostly in the field of Cell biology, narrowing it down to matters related to Membrane and, in some cases, Molecular biology. His Golgi apparatus research is within the category of Endoplasmic reticulum.

His Cell membrane study improves the overall literature in Biochemistry. His Basolateral plasma membrane research includes themes of Epithelial polarity and Tight junction. His work deals with themes such as Cell cycle, Signal transduction and Cellular compartment, which intersect with Membrane lipids.

His most cited work include:

  • Lipid sorting in epithelial cells. (1182 citations)
  • Lipid traffic in animal cells (401 citations)
  • The function of tight junctions in maintaining differences in lipid composition between the apical and the basolateral cell surface domains of MDCK cells (386 citations)

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

G. van Meer mostly deals with Cell biology, Biochemistry, Golgi apparatus, Sphingomyelin and Cell membrane. His Cell biology research integrates issues from Apical membrane, Membrane, Membrane lipids and Basolateral plasma membrane. His Membrane lipids study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cellular compartment and Cholesterol.

His Golgi apparatus research includes elements of Cell fractionation and Sphingolipid. His Sphingolipid research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Glycolipid and Membrane transport. His Sphingomyelin research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Transcytosis, Serum albumin and Phosphatidylcholine.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (58.82%)
  • Biochemistry (39.71%)
  • Golgi apparatus (36.76%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1999-2012)?

  • Cell biology (58.82%)
  • Sphingolipid (23.53%)
  • Membrane (20.59%)

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

G. van Meer focuses on Cell biology, Sphingolipid, Membrane, Biochemistry and Membrane lipids. His studies deal with areas such as Vesicular transport protein and Membrane protein as well as Cell biology. His Sphingolipid course of study focuses on Glycolipid and Sphingomyelin, Protein targeting and Second messenger system.

G. van Meer has researched Membrane in several fields, including Organic chemistry and Liposome. G. van Meer integrates Biochemistry and Glycosyltransferase in his studies. His work on Brefeldin A as part of general Golgi apparatus study is frequently linked to Ganglioside galactosyltransferase, bridging the gap between disciplines.

Between 1999 and 2012, his most popular works were:

  • Pre- and post-Golgi translocation of glucosylceramide in glycosphingolipid synthesis (219 citations)
  • Sphingolipid transport in eukaryotic cells. (135 citations)
  • Lipid distribution and transport across cellular membranes. (117 citations)

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

  • Cell membrane
  • Biochemistry
  • DNA

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Cell biology, Ceramide transport, Transport protein, Asymmetric distribution and Membrane. G. van Meer regularly ties together related areas like Membrane lipids in his Cell biology studies. He has included themes like Glycolipid, Protein targeting, Sphingolipid and Second messenger system in his Membrane lipids study.

His Transport protein research incorporates elements of Golgi apparatus, Endoplasmic reticulum, Brefeldin A and Immunoelectron microscopy. Many of his Asymmetric distribution research pursuits overlap with Distribution, Dynamic equilibrium, Bilayer, Intracellular organelles and Lipid composition. G. van Meer studies Membrane protein, a branch of Membrane.
