Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • DNA

Janet Yother mainly focuses on Microbiology, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Virulence, Bacterial capsule and Virology. Her research on Microbiology also deals with topics like

  • Antibody which connect with Antigen,
  • Bacteria that connect with fields like Glycosidic bond, Biochemistry, Polysaccharide and Glycosyltransferase. When carried out as part of a general Streptococcus pneumoniae research project, her work on Autolysin is frequently linked to work in Lipoteichoic acid, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study.

In her study, Plasmid and Molecular biology is inextricably linked to Mutant, which falls within the broad field of Virulence. Janet Yother has researched Bacterial capsule in several fields, including Chromosome and DNA. Her work deals with themes such as Serology, Pneumococcal infections and Streptococcaceae, which intersect with Virology.

Her most cited work include:

  • Reduced virulence of a defined pneumolysin-negative mutant of Streptococcus pneumoniae. (301 citations)
  • Strong association between capsular type and virulence for mice among human isolates of Streptococcus pneumoniae. (234 citations)
  • Pneumococcal surface protein A (PspA) is serologically highly variable and is expressed by all clinically important capsular serotypes of Streptococcus pneumoniae. (228 citations)

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

Her primary areas of study are Streptococcus pneumoniae, Microbiology, Gene, Biochemistry and Virulence. The various areas that Janet Yother examines in her Streptococcus pneumoniae study include Bacterial capsule, DNA and Tyrosine phosphorylation. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Epitope, Antibody and Virology.

Her Virology research integrates issues from Serology and Polyclonal antibodies. Her Gene research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Molecular biology and Pneumococcal surface protein A. Her Virulence research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Pneumococcal infections and Streptococcaceae.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Streptococcus pneumoniae (52.00%)
  • Microbiology (48.00%)
  • Gene (30.67%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2005-2020)?

  • Biochemistry (30.67%)
  • Streptococcus pneumoniae (52.00%)
  • Microbiology (48.00%)

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

Janet Yother mostly deals with Biochemistry, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Microbiology, Polysaccharide and Glycosyltransferase. The Streptococcus pneumoniae study combines topics in areas such as Bacterial capsule, Gene and Virulence. Janet Yother has included themes like Phosphorylation, Tyrosine phosphorylation, Serotype and Escherichia coli in her Bacterial capsule study.

Her work carried out in the field of Microbiology brings together such families of science as Cell, Plasma protein binding, Protein tyrosine phosphatase, Phosphatase and Lactoferrin. Her studies deal with areas such as Glycosidic bond, Oligosaccharide and ATP synthase as well as Polysaccharide. Her Mutant research incorporates themes from Molecular biology, Transcription, Repressor and Cell membrane.

Between 2005 and 2020, her most popular works were:

  • Capsules of Streptococcus pneumoniae and Other Bacteria: Paradigms for Polysaccharide Biosynthesis and Regulation (202 citations)
  • Biochemical, Genetic, and Serological Characterization of Two Capsule Subtypes among Streptococcus pneumoniae Serotype 20 Strains DISCOVERY OF A NEW PNEUMOCOCCAL SEROTYPE (116 citations)
  • Mutations Blocking Side Chain Assembly, Polymerization, or Transport of a Wzy-Dependent Streptococcus pneumoniae Capsule Are Lethal in the Absence of Suppressor Mutations and Can Affect Polymer Transfer to the Cell Wall (85 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • DNA

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Mutant, Biochemistry, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Polysaccharide and ATP synthase. In general Mutant, her work in Operon is often linked to Flippase linking many areas of study. She interconnects Pathogen, Microbiology and Virology in the investigation of issues within Streptococcus pneumoniae.

Janet Yother studies Serotype which is a part of Microbiology. Her research in Polysaccharide intersects with topics in Dehydrogenase, Microbial metabolism, Substrate and Virulence. Her ATP synthase research includes themes of Glycosidic bond, Regulation of gene expression, Glycosyltransferase and Bacteria.
