His main research concerns Biochemistry, Stereochemistry, Biosynthesis, Enzyme and Polyketide. His Stereochemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Polyketide synthase, Chalcone synthase, Organic chemistry and Active site. His Active site research integrates issues from Chromone, Mutant and ATP synthase.
His Biosynthesis study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Gene cluster, Moiety, Aspergillus oryzae and Streptomyces. Ikuro Abe combines subjects such as Mutagenesis, Squalene and Peptide sequence with his study of Enzyme. His work carried out in the field of Polyketide brings together such families of science as Computational biology, Site-directed mutagenesis and Phylogenetic tree.
Ikuro Abe mainly investigates Stereochemistry, Biochemistry, Biosynthesis, Enzyme and Polyketide. His studies in Stereochemistry integrate themes in fields like Squalene, Active site, Substrate, Chalcone synthase and ATP synthase. His studies deal with areas such as Aloe arborescens, Recombinant DNA, Chromone, Mutant and Rheum palmatum as well as ATP synthase.
The various areas that Ikuro Abe examines in his Biosynthesis study include Gene cluster, Protein engineering, Aspergillus oryzae and Cytochrome P450. His work deals with themes such as Mutagenesis, Terpene and 2,3-Oxidosqualene, which intersect with Enzyme. His work carried out in the field of Polyketide brings together such families of science as Mutagenesis, Catalytic triad and Pyrone.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Stereochemistry, Biosynthesis, Enzyme, Biochemistry and Terpenoid. The Stereochemistry study combines topics in areas such as Derivative, Catalysis and Peptide. His Biosynthesis study focuses on Polyketide in particular.
He has included themes like Trans-acting and Synthetic biology in his Enzyme study. Ikuro Abe focuses mostly in the field of Synthetic biology, narrowing it down to topics relating to Protein engineering and, in certain cases, Enzyme structure, Active site and Chalcone synthase. His Terpenoid course of study focuses on Rhizome and Chloroform, Absolute configuration and Biological activity.
His primary scientific interests are in Biochemistry, Stereochemistry, Biosynthesis, Enzyme and Gene. His study on Cyclase and Methyltransferase is often connected to Caffeine metabolism, Theacrine and Xanthine alkaloids as part of broader study in Biochemistry. His Stereochemistry research is mostly focused on the topic Intramolecular force.
A large part of his Biosynthesis studies is devoted to Polyketide. His study in Enzyme is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both HeLa, Molecule, Small molecule and Synthetic biology. His research in the fields of Whole genome sequencing and Secondary metabolism overlaps with other disciplines such as Mycolic acid and Ascofuranone.
