Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Genetics

Her primary areas of investigation include Cell biology, Slit, Genetics, Neuroscience and RNA splicing. She combines subjects such as Cell migration and Immunoprecipitation with her study of Cell biology. Jane Y. Wu interconnects Chemotaxis, Leukocyte chemotaxis, Axon guidance, Slit-Robo and GABAergic in the investigation of issues within Slit.

To a larger extent, Jane Y. Wu studies Gene with the aim of understanding RNA splicing. She has included themes like Cancer research and Intracellular in her Gene study. The various areas that Jane Y. Wu examines in her Cancer research study include Ovarian carcinoma, Serous fluid, Serous carcinoma and DNA methylation.

Her most cited work include:

  • Integrated genomic analyses of ovarian carcinoma (4769 citations)
  • Specific interactions between proteins implicated in splice site selection and regulated alternative splicing (634 citations)
  • Signal transduction in neuronal migration: roles of GTPase activating proteins and the small GTPase Cdc42 in the Slit-Robo pathway. (484 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Cell biology, RNA splicing, Genetics, Neuroscience and Alternative splicing. The Cell biology study combines topics in areas such as Molecular biology and Slit. RNA splicing is the subject of her research, which falls under Gene.

Genetics is a component of her Phenotype, microRNA and Gene knockdown studies. Her research investigates the connection with Neuroscience and areas like Anatomy which intersect with concerns in Mushroom bodies and Retinal degeneration. Her Alternative splicing research focuses on Intron and how it connects with Spliceosome.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (50.57%)
  • RNA splicing (24.71%)
  • Genetics (22.41%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Cell biology (50.57%)
  • Cancer research (14.94%)
  • Mitochondrion (8.05%)

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

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Cell biology, Cancer research, Mitochondrion, Neurodegeneration and ROBO1. Her work carried out in the field of Cell biology brings together such families of science as RNA-binding protein and Gene. Her research on Gene concerns the broader Genetics.

Her work deals with themes such as Ubiquitin, Signal transduction and Metastasis, which intersect with Cancer research. Her Signal transduction research focuses on subjects like Lung cancer, which are linked to Slit. The study incorporates disciplines such as Cell migration and SLIT2 in addition to ROBO1.

Between 2013 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • FUS Interacts with HSP60 to Promote Mitochondrial Damage (89 citations)
  • CD146 acts as a novel receptor for netrin-1 in promoting angiogenesis and vascular development (69 citations)
  • Axon Guidance Factor SLIT2 Inhibits Neural Invasion and Metastasis in Pancreatic Cancer (59 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Genetics

Jane Y. Wu mostly deals with Cell biology, Neurodegeneration, Mitochondrion, Cancer research and Mitochondrial unfolded protein response. Her Cell biology research includes themes of Polyadenylation, Messenger RNA, Gene and Post-transcriptional regulation. Her Mitochondrion research is within the category of Genetics.

Her Cancer research study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cell, Gene silencing, Signal transduction and Metastasis. Her Signal transduction study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cell migration, DNA methylation, Downregulation and upregulation, HEK 293 cells and Colorectal cancer. Her Mitochondrial unfolded protein response research incorporates elements of Mutation, Regulation of gene expression, ATP synthase and Inner mitochondrial membrane.
