Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • DNA

His primary areas of investigation include Immunology, Cell biology, Immune system, Toll-like receptor and Innate immune system. While the research belongs to areas of Immunology, Hermann Wagner spends his time largely on the problem of Interleukin 12, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Interleukin 4 and Interleukin. His Cell biology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as TLR7, Toll-Like Receptor 9, Dendritic cell and TLR8.

His research in Immune system intersects with topics in Tumor necrosis factor alpha, In vitro and In vivo. His study looks at the relationship between Toll-like receptor and topics such as TLR2, which overlap with Microbiology. His Molecular biology research includes themes of Cytotoxic T cell, CD40, Antigen, TLR9 and CpG site.

His most cited work include:

  • A Toll-like receptor recognizes bacterial DNA. (5617 citations)
  • Species-Specific Recognition of Single-Stranded RNA via Toll-like Receptor 7 and 8 (3182 citations)
  • Human TLR9 confers responsiveness to bacterial DNA via species-specific CpG motif recognition (1331 citations)

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

Hermann Wagner mainly investigates Immunology, Molecular biology, Cytotoxic T cell, Immune system and Cell biology. His In vivo research extends to the thematically linked field of Immunology. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Molecular biology, CpG Oligodeoxynucleotide, Toll-Like Receptor 9 and DNA is strongly linked to CpG site.

His research integrates issues of T cell and Antigen in his study of Cytotoxic T cell. His Immune system study incorporates themes from Inflammation, Adjuvant and Microbiology. His Cell biology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Apoptosis, Dendritic cell and TLR7.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (45.11%)
  • Molecular biology (28.45%)
  • Cytotoxic T cell (27.59%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2004-2019)?

  • Immunology (45.11%)
  • Cell biology (23.28%)
  • Immune system (24.14%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Immunology, Cell biology, Immune system, TLR2 and Innate immune system. His Immunology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Receptor and TLR9. His study in Cell biology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cytotoxic T cell, TLR7, Dna recognition and Molecular biology.

His Immune system research also works with subjects such as

  • Antigen and related T cell,
  • Proinflammatory cytokine which intersects with area such as Gut flora. As a part of the same scientific study, he usually deals with the TLR2, concentrating on Cytokine and frequently concerns with Chemokine. He combines subjects such as Signal transduction and Microbiology with his study of Innate immune system.

Between 2004 and 2019, his most popular works were:

  • Specificity in Toll-like receptor signalling through distinct effector functions of TRAF3 and TRAF6 (771 citations)
  • Selective depletion of Foxp3+ regulatory T cells induces a scurfy-like disease. (717 citations)
  • Induction of inflammatory and immune responses by HMGB1–nucleosome complexes: implications for the pathogenesis of SLE (435 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • DNA

His scientific interests lie mostly in Immunology, Cell biology, Immune system, TLR9 and Toll-like receptor. His studies in Cell biology integrate themes in fields like Cytokine, TLR7, Dendritic cell, Interferon and Molecular biology. His Immune system study combines topics in areas such as Proinflammatory cytokine and Antigen.

The various areas that he examines in his TLR9 study include DNA and CpG site. He's looking at Toll-like receptor as part of his Innate immune system and Receptor and Toll-like receptor study. In his work, Myeloid Differentiation Factor 88 is strongly intertwined with Signal transduction, which is a subfield of Innate immune system.
