Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Neuron

His primary scientific interests are in Voltage-dependent calcium channel, Neuroscience, Cell biology, Calcium channel and T-type calcium channel. His Voltage-dependent calcium channel study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Alternative splicing, Biophysics, Biochemistry and Protein subunit. His Neuroscience research incorporates themes from Inflammation, Nociceptor and Ion channel.

The Cell biology study combines topics in areas such as Immunology, STX1A and N-type calcium channel. He has included themes like Alpha, BK channel and Inward-rectifier potassium ion channel in his Calcium channel study. In general T-type calcium channel, his work in P-type calcium channel is often linked to Peripheral nervous system linking many areas of study.

His most cited work include:

  • Crosstalk between G proteins and protein kinase C mediated by the calcium channel α 1 subunit (459 citations)
  • The Physiology, Pathology, and Pharmacology of Voltage-Gated Calcium Channels and Their Future Therapeutic Potential (448 citations)
  • NMDA receptors mediate calcium accumulation in myelin during chemical ischaemia. (411 citations)

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

His main research concerns Voltage-dependent calcium channel, Calcium channel, Cell biology, Neuroscience and Biophysics. His Voltage-dependent calcium channel research incorporates elements of Biochemistry and Pharmacology. He combines subjects such as Protein subunit, Patch clamp and Stereochemistry with his study of Calcium channel.

His Cell biology research focuses on Neurotransmission and how it connects with Syntaxin. Gerald W. Zamponi has researched Neuroscience in several fields, including Nociceptor and Ion channel. His Biophysics research integrates issues from Intracellular, Sodium channel and Cav1.2.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Voltage-dependent calcium channel (49.34%)
  • Calcium channel (34.91%)
  • Cell biology (29.92%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Voltage-dependent calcium channel (49.34%)
  • Calcium channel (34.91%)
  • Neuroscience (25.46%)

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

His primary areas of study are Voltage-dependent calcium channel, Calcium channel, Neuroscience, Cell biology and T-type calcium channel. His Voltage-dependent calcium channel study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Biophysics, Biochemistry, Electrophysiology and Dorsal root ganglion. His study in Calcium channel is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Missense mutation, Mutant, Voltage-gated ion channel, Stereochemistry and Patch clamp.

Neuroscience connects with themes related to Peripheral nerve injury in his study. His studies deal with areas such as Glutamate receptor, Receptor, Ion channel and Neurotransmission as well as Cell biology. The various areas that Gerald W. Zamponi examines in his T-type calcium channel study include Pharmacophore, Dihydropyridine, Calcium channel blocker and Pharmacology.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Targeting voltage-gated calcium channels in neurological and psychiatric diseases (189 citations)
  • Blocking microglial pannexin-1 channels alleviates morphine withdrawal in rodents. (78 citations)
  • Recent advances in the development of T‐type calcium channel blockers for pain intervention (44 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Neuron

Gerald W. Zamponi spends much of his time researching Voltage-dependent calcium channel, Neuroscience, Calcium channel, Pharmacology and Cell biology. His Voltage-dependent calcium channel research is included under the broader classification of Calcium. His research in Neuroscience intersects with topics in Nociceptor and Peripheral nerve injury.

His Calcium channel research is mostly focused on the topic T-type calcium channel. His Pharmacology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Mibefradil, Patch clamp, Microglia and Nociception. He combines subjects such as Hyperalgesia and Biochemistry with his study of Cell biology.
