Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • DNA

His scientific interests lie mostly in Crystallin, Genetics, Molecular biology, Biochemistry and Gene. Graeme Wistow mostly deals with Lens protein in his studies of Crystallin. The various areas that he examines in his Lens protein study include Protein superfamily, Molecular evolution and Cell biology.

His studies in Molecular biology integrate themes in fields like Expressed sequence tag and Biological evolution. His study in Biochemistry focuses on Complementary DNA, Peptide sequence, Enzyme and Amino acid. His Gene expression study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Macrophage migration inhibitory factor and Transcription factor, Eye development.

His most cited work include:

  • Lens Crystallins: The Evolution and Expression of Proteins for a Highly Specialized Tissue (669 citations)
  • Usher Syndrome 1D and Nonsyndromic Autosomal Recessive Deafness DFNB12 Are Caused by Allelic Mutations of the Novel Cadherin-Like Gene CDH23 (440 citations)
  • Enzyme/crystallins: Gene sharing as an evolutionary strategy (321 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Crystallin, Molecular biology, Gene, Genetics and Biochemistry. His biological study focuses on Lens protein. His study in Molecular biology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Macrophage migration inhibitory factor, Complementary DNA, Messenger RNA, Northern blot and Locus.

His studies in Macrophage migration inhibitory factor integrate themes in fields like Lymphokine, Immune system and Cell biology. His Complementary DNA research incorporates elements of Southern blot and Protein primary structure. His cDNA library research integrates issues from Retinal pigment epithelium, Expressed sequence tag and Computational biology.

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

Graeme Wistow mostly deals with Crystallin, Retinal pigment epithelium, Biochemistry, Crystallography and Molecular biology. His Crystallin research incorporates themes from Cytoplasm, Plasma protein binding, Vertebrate, Protein structure and Methionine. His Retinal pigment epithelium research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Macular degeneration and Pathology.

His research in Biochemistry intersects with topics in Endocrinology and Internal medicine. The various areas that Graeme Wistow examines in his Molecular biology study include Calcium, Lens Fiber, Northern blot, Wild type and Mineralization. His work in In situ hybridization addresses issues such as Lens, which are connected to fields such as Gene.

Between 2011 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Evolution of crystallins for a role in the vertebrate eye lens (89 citations)
  • The human crystallin gene families. (68 citations)
  • Functions of crystallins in and out of lens: Roles in elongated and post-mitotic cells (51 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Enzyme

Graeme Wistow spends much of his time researching Crystallin, Vertebrate, Protein structure, Biochemistry and Cell biology. The concepts of his Crystallin study are interwoven with issues in Mutation, Heat shock protein and Gene family. Graeme Wistow has included themes like Chaperone, Protein folding, Peptide sequence and Danio, Zebrafish in his Vertebrate study.

His Protein structure study incorporates themes from Crystallography and Water binding. His Biochemistry study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Lens. His work carried out in the field of Cell biology brings together such families of science as Receptor and Sensory system.
