Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Enzyme

James R. Davie spends much of his time researching Molecular biology, Chromatin, Cell biology, Histone H1 and Histone H2A. His research integrates issues of Histone deacetylase activity, Nuclear matrix, HDAC11, Histone deacetylase 2 and Phosphorylation in his study of Molecular biology. His study in Chromatin is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Histone and Chromatin immunoprecipitation.

The Cell biology study combines topics in areas such as Psychological repression, Nuclear receptor co-repressor 2, Transcription factor, Repressor and Corepressor. His research on Histone H1 also deals with topics like

  • Histone methyltransferase which is related to area like Histone acetyltransferase activity,
  • Histone H3 which is related to area like Kinase and MAPK/ERK pathway. His Histone H2A study incorporates themes from Histone H2B, Histone methylation and Histone code.

His most cited work include:

  • Histone H4-K16 Acetylation Controls Chromatin Structure and Protein Interactions (1451 citations)
  • A complex containing N-CoR, mSin3 and histone deacetylase mediates transcriptional repression. (1180 citations)
  • Histone Deacetylases Associated with the mSin3 Corepressor Mediate Mad Transcriptional Repression (879 citations)

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

Molecular biology, Chromatin, Cell biology, Histone and Histone code are his primary areas of study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Chromatin immunoprecipitation, Transcription factor, Gene, DNA and Histone deacetylase. His studies examine the connections between Cell biology and genetics, as well as such issues in Nuclear matrix, with regards to Estrogen receptor and Gel electrophoresis.

His Histone research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Transcription, Acetylation, Epigenetics and DNA methylation. His Histone code research includes elements of Epigenomics, Histone H2A, Histone methylation and Histone H1. James R. Davie has researched Histone H2A in several fields, including Histone deacetylase 2, Histone methyltransferase, Histone deacetylase 5 and Histone deacetylase activity.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Molecular biology (44.06%)
  • Chromatin (38.12%)
  • Cell biology (31.19%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Epigenetics (8.91%)
  • Molecular biology (44.06%)
  • Cell biology (31.19%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Epigenetics, Molecular biology, Cell biology, Histone and DNA methylation. His Epigenetics research incorporates themes from Embryonic stem cell, Gene expression and Histone methylation. James R. Davie combines subjects such as Chromatin, Chromatin remodeling, DNA, Histone deacetylase 2 and Corepressor with his study of Molecular biology.

His studies in Chromatin integrate themes in fields like Promoter and RNA polymerase II. His Cell biology research integrates issues from Cancer cell and Histone H2A. His Histone research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in H3K4me3, Cancer research and Acetylation.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • DNA modifications: function and applications in normal and disease States. (83 citations)
  • Immediate early response genes and cell transformation (63 citations)
  • Targeting class I histone deacetylases in cancer therapy. (52 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Enzyme

His primary areas of investigation include Epigenetics, Histone code, Molecular biology, Cell biology and Chromatin. His Epigenetics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cancer prevention, Histone methylation, DNA methylation and Disease. His work deals with themes such as Epigenomics, Histone H2A and Histone methyltransferase, which intersect with Histone code.

His work carried out in the field of Molecular biology brings together such families of science as Histone deacetylase 2 and Corepressor. His Corepressor study deals with Chromatin remodeling intersecting with Histone deacetylase 5 and HDAC11. The various areas that he examines in his Cell biology study include Alternative splicing and Gene isoform.
