Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Enzyme
  • Biochemistry
  • Amino acid

His scientific interests lie mostly in Enzyme, Biochemistry, Stereochemistry, Biophysics and Physical chemistry. His Enzyme study contributes to a more complete understanding of Organic chemistry. Gordon G. Hammes works mostly in the field of Biochemistry, limiting it down to topics relating to Uracil nucleotide and, in certain cases, Spectrophotometry and Phosphate, as a part of the same area of interest.

His Stereochemistry study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Fluorescence, Active site, Dihydrofolate reductase, Dissociation constant and Protein structure. The Biophysics study combines topics in areas such as Oxidative phosphorylation, Macromolecule, Membrane, Chromatography and Phosphorylation. His Physical chemistry study combines topics in areas such as Rate equation, Reaction rate constant, Relaxation spectrometry and Substrate.

His most cited work include:

  • Conformational selection or induced fit: A flux description of reaction mechanism (377 citations)
  • Application of the Theory of Diffusion-controlled Reactions to Enzyme Kinetics (284 citations)
  • Multiple Conformational Changes in Enzyme Catalysis (259 citations)

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

His main research concerns Biochemistry, Stereochemistry, Enzyme, Biophysics and Binding site. His research ties Fluorescence and Biochemistry together. His research in Stereochemistry intersects with topics in Reaction rate constant, Fatty acid synthase, Förster resonance energy transfer, Dissociation constant and Aspartate Transcarbamylase.

His Aspartate Transcarbamylase study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Relaxation. His Enzyme research incorporates elements of Conformational change and Catalysis. His Biophysics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Membrane and Coupling.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Biochemistry (34.72%)
  • Stereochemistry (26.79%)
  • Enzyme (25.28%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1988-2015)?

  • Enzyme (25.28%)
  • Biochemistry (34.72%)
  • Stereochemistry (26.79%)

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

Gordon G. Hammes mostly deals with Enzyme, Biochemistry, Stereochemistry, Biophysics and DNA polymerase. His Molecule research extends to the thematically linked field of Enzyme. His work in Biochemistry tackles topics such as Molecular biology which are related to areas like Yeast and Vesicle-associated membrane protein 8.

He has included themes like Enzyme catalysis, Quenching, Dihydrofolate reductase, Protein structure and Phosphorescence in his Stereochemistry study. As part of the same scientific family, Gordon G. Hammes usually focuses on Dihydrofolate reductase, concentrating on Conformational change and intersecting with Biotin, Dissociation constant and Flavin mononucleotide. Vesicle and Phospholipid is closely connected to Fluorescence in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Biophysics.

Between 1988 and 2015, his most popular works were:

  • Conformational selection or induced fit: A flux description of reaction mechanism (377 citations)
  • Multiple Conformational Changes in Enzyme Catalysis (259 citations)
  • Interaction of dihydrofolate reductase with methotrexate: Ensemble and single-molecule kinetics (208 citations)

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

  • Enzyme
  • Biochemistry
  • Amino acid

His scientific interests lie mostly in Enzyme, Stereochemistry, Dihydrofolate reductase, Protein structure and Enzyme catalysis. Enzyme is a primary field of his research addressed under Biochemistry. His Stereochemistry research includes themes of Reaction rate constant, Biophysics, Molecule and Active site.

The concepts of his Dihydrofolate reductase study are interwoven with issues in Conformational change, Fluorescence, Substrate and Dissociation constant. His Protein structure research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Chemical physics, Crystallography, Protein folding and Ligand. His study focuses on the intersection of Enzyme catalysis and fields such as Computational chemistry with connections in the field of Catalysis, Allosteric enzyme, Primary, Aspartate carbamoyltransferase and Allosteric regulation.
