Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Bacteria
  • DNA

His scientific interests lie mostly in Microbiology, Escherichia coli, Enteropathogenic Escherichia coli, Virulence and Locus of enterocyte effacement. The concepts of his Microbiology study are interwoven with issues in Plasmid, Gene, Diarrhea and Virology. Escherichia coli and Mutant are frequently intertwined in his study.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Molecular biology, Tubulin, Secretion and Intimin. James B. Kaper combines subjects such as Vibrio cholerae, Vibrionaceae and Bacteria with his study of Virulence. Regulon, Operon, Quorum sensing and Autoinducer is closely connected to Type three secretion system in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Locus of enterocyte effacement.

His most cited work include:

  • Diarrheagenic Escherichia coli (4245 citations)
  • Pathogenic Escherichia coli (3201 citations)
  • Pathogenicity Islands and the Evolution of Microbes (1067 citations)

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

James B. Kaper focuses on Microbiology, Escherichia coli, Virulence, Vibrio cholerae and Enteropathogenic Escherichia coli. James B. Kaper has included themes like Plasmid, Gene, Virology and Enterobacteriaceae, Intimin in his Microbiology study. His Escherichia coli study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Serotype and Mutant.

His studies deal with areas such as Shigella and Gene expression as well as Virulence. The various areas that James B. Kaper examines in his Vibrio cholerae study include Cholera, Cholera toxin, Molecular biology and Vibrionaceae. His Enteropathogenic Escherichia coli study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Secretion and Type three secretion system.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Microbiology (71.94%)
  • Escherichia coli (40.65%)
  • Virulence (26.26%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2010-2021)?

  • Microbiology (71.94%)
  • Escherichia coli (40.65%)
  • Virulence (26.26%)

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

James B. Kaper mainly focuses on Microbiology, Escherichia coli, Virulence, Cell biology and Virology. His Microbiology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Intimin, Diarrhea and Enteropathogenic Escherichia coli. When carried out as part of a general Escherichia coli research project, his work on Shiga toxin is frequently linked to work in LGR5, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study.

His Virulence research includes themes of Plasmid, Shigella and Serotype. James B. Kaper combines subjects such as Secretion and Enterotoxin with his study of Cell biology. His Virology research incorporates elements of In vivo and Cholera vaccine.

Between 2010 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Escherichia, Shigella, and Salmonella (244 citations)
  • Enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli Reduces Mucus and Intermicrovillar Bridges in Human Stem Cell-Derived Colonoids (121 citations)
  • The Escherichia coli phosphotyrosine proteome relates to core pathways and virulence. (62 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Bacteria
  • DNA

James B. Kaper mostly deals with Microbiology, Escherichia coli, Virulence, Enteropathogenic Escherichia coli and Shiga toxin. He interconnects Mobile genetic elements, Virology and Intimin in the investigation of issues within Microbiology. His work carried out in the field of Escherichia coli brings together such families of science as Confluency, Tight junction, Epithelial Damage and Mucin 2.

His study explores the link between Virulence and topics such as Plasmid that cross with problems in Enterobacteriaceae and Fimbria. His Enteropathogenic Escherichia coli study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Lysogenic cycle and Pilus. As a member of one scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Shiga toxin, focusing on Enteroaggregative Escherichia coli and, on occasion, Intestinal mucosa, Type three secretion system, Intestinal epithelium and Bacterial adhesin.
