Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • DNA

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Tau protein, Neuroscience, Cell biology, Biochemistry and Phosphorylation. Jesús Avila interconnects Amino acid, Hyperphosphorylation, Extracellular, Protein structure and Amyloid in the investigation of issues within Tau protein. His Neuroscience study incorporates themes from Alzheimer's disease, Dementia, Disease and GSK3B.

His study in Cell biology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Programmed cell death and Cytoskeleton. The concepts of his Biochemistry study are interwoven with issues in Tubulin and Tubulin binding. In his study, RNA splicing is strongly linked to Molecular biology, which falls under the umbrella field of Phosphorylation.

His most cited work include:

  • Decreased nuclear β‐catenin, tau hyperphosphorylation and neurodegeneration in GSK‐3β conditional transgenic mice (750 citations)
  • Functional recovery of paraplegic rats and motor axon regeneration in their spinal cords by olfactory ensheathing glia. (737 citations)
  • Long-Distance Axonal Regeneration in the Transected Adult Rat Spinal Cord Is Promoted by Olfactory Ensheathing Glia Transplants (643 citations)

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

His main research concerns Cell biology, Neuroscience, Tau protein, Biochemistry and Phosphorylation. His Cell biology research integrates issues from Genetically modified mouse, Programmed cell death and Cytoskeleton. His research in Neuroscience intersects with topics in Alzheimer's disease, Disease, Neurodegeneration and GSK-3.

The Tau protein study combines topics in areas such as Senile plaques, Hyperphosphorylation, Extracellular, Tauopathy and Gene isoform. His work carried out in the field of Biochemistry brings together such families of science as Molecular biology and Biophysics. Phosphorylation is closely attributed to Kinase in his study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (33.07%)
  • Neuroscience (30.21%)
  • Tau protein (27.03%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Neuroscience (30.21%)
  • Tau protein (27.03%)
  • Cell biology (33.07%)

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

Jesús Avila focuses on Neuroscience, Tau protein, Cell biology, Disease and Hippocampal formation. His Neuroscience research incorporates themes from Alzheimer's disease, Neurodegeneration and Cognitive decline. His research investigates the connection between Neurodegeneration and topics such as Kinase that intersect with problems in Phosphorylation.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Extracellular, Microglia, Microtubule, Intracellular and Tauopathy. His studies deal with areas such as Oxidative stress, Secretion, Genetically modified mouse and Autophagy as well as Cell biology. His Hippocampal formation study also includes

  • Neurogenesis which connect with Dentate gyrus and GSK-3,
  • Immunostaining together with Immunoelectron microscopy and Tubulin binding.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Adult hippocampal neurogenesis is abundant in neurologically healthy subjects and drops sharply in patients with Alzheimer’s disease (446 citations)
  • Alzheimer's disease as an inflammatory disease. (100 citations)
  • Human DNA methylomes of neurodegenerative diseases show common epigenomic patterns. (95 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • DNA

Jesús Avila mainly investigates Neuroscience, Disease, Cell biology, Tau protein and Microglia. The concepts of his Neuroscience study are interwoven with issues in Alzheimer's disease and Neurodegeneration. His Disease research incorporates elements of Neurology, Genome-wide association study, Gene and Function.

His Cell biology research includes elements of Autophagy and Mitophagy. His Tau protein research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Ryanodine receptor, Intracellular, Dysfunctional family, Microtubule and Tauopathy. Jesús Avila studied Dementia and Phosphorylation that intersect with Transport protein.
