Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Internal medicine

His scientific interests lie mostly in Molecular biology, Biochemistry, Matrix metalloproteinase, Immunology and Chemokine. His Molecular biology research incorporates elements of Interleukin 8, Complementary DNA, Peptide sequence, Gelatinase and Granulocyte. His Matrix metalloproteinase study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Extracellular, Extracellular matrix, Cell biology and Downregulation and upregulation.

As a member of one scientific family, Ghislain Opdenakker mostly works in the field of Cell biology, focusing on Proteases and, on occasion, Enzyme activator and Plasminogen activator. He frequently studies issues relating to Angiogenesis and Immunology. His studies in Chemokine integrate themes in fields like Chemotaxis and Monocyte.

His most cited work include:

  • Microglia emerge from erythromyeloid precursors via Pu.1- and Irf8-dependent pathways (779 citations)
  • Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of Gelatinase B or Matrix Metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) (716 citations)
  • Identification of the human 26-kD protein, interferon beta 2 (IFN-beta 2), as a B cell hybridoma/plasmacytoma growth factor induced by interleukin 1 and tumor necrosis factor. (603 citations)

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

Ghislain Opdenakker mostly deals with Immunology, Molecular biology, Matrix metalloproteinase, Biochemistry and Chemokine. His study connects Cancer research and Immunology. His Molecular biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Cell culture, Gene, Gelatinase, Monocyte and Plasminogen activator.

His Gelatinase research integrates issues from Gelatinase A and Zymography. Ghislain Opdenakker interconnects Proteases, Pathology and Extracellular matrix, Cell biology in the investigation of issues within Matrix metalloproteinase. The concepts of his Chemokine study are interwoven with issues in Chemotaxis and Interleukin 8.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (29.86%)
  • Molecular biology (26.85%)
  • Matrix metalloproteinase (23.23%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Immunology (29.86%)
  • Matrix metalloproteinase (23.23%)
  • Inflammation (11.76%)

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

His main research concerns Immunology, Matrix metalloproteinase, Inflammation, Internal medicine and Angiogenesis. His Immunology study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Disease. The subject of his Matrix metalloproteinase research is within the realm of Biochemistry.

His Internal medicine research includes themes of Gastroenterology and Endocrinology. His research in Cell biology focuses on subjects like Chemotaxis, which are connected to Monocyte and Leukocyte migration. His Chemokine research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Serum amyloid A, Interleukin 8 and Experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Molecular mechanisms of NET formation and degradation revealed by intravital imaging in the liver vasculature (246 citations)
  • Crosstalk between Sentinel and Helper Macrophages Permits Neutrophil Migration into Infected Uroepithelium (136 citations)
  • Focal MMP-2 and MMP-9 Activity at the Blood-Brain Barrier Promotes Chemokine-Induced Leukocyte Migration (93 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Internal medicine

His primary areas of investigation include Immunology, Matrix metalloproteinase, Inflammation, Proteases and Internal medicine. His research on Immunology frequently links to adjacent areas such as Cell biology. His Matrix metalloproteinase research is included under the broader classification of Biochemistry.

His research investigates the connection between Proteases and topics such as Autoimmunity that intersect with problems in Extracellular matrix. His research integrates issues of Gastroenterology and Endocrinology in his study of Internal medicine. His Chemokine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Serum amyloid A, Monocyte chemotaxis and Interleukin 8.
