What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Immune system

His primary areas of investigation include Complement system, CD46, Immunology, Molecular biology and Cell biology. His study brings together the fields of Biochemistry and Complement system. The concepts of his CD46 study are interwoven with issues in Chinese hamster ovary cell, Virology, Atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome, Cofactor and Transfection.

John P. Atkinson interconnects Receptor, Cell culture and Antibody in the investigation of issues within Molecular biology. His Cell biology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Complement C3-C5 Convertases, Interleukin 21, Anaphylatoxin, Complement membrane attack complex and Complement receptor. As part of one scientific family, John P. Atkinson deals mainly with the area of Alternative complement pathway, narrowing it down to issues related to the Classical complement pathway, and often Acquired immune system and Innate immune system.

His most cited work include:

  • Human T Regulatory Cells Can Use the Perforin Pathway to Cause Autologous Target Cell Death (796 citations)
  • Genetics of HUS: the impact of MCP, CFH, and IF mutations on clinical presentation, response to treatment, and outcome (550 citations)
  • Membrane cofactor protein (MCP or CD46): newest member of the regulators of complement activation gene cluster. (506 citations)

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

John P. Atkinson focuses on Complement system, Immunology, CD46, Molecular biology and Biochemistry. Alternative complement pathway, Complement receptor, Classical complement pathway, Complement factor I and Factor H are among the areas of Complement system where John P. Atkinson concentrates his study. His studies deal with areas such as Properdin, Complement factor B and Complement membrane attack complex as well as Alternative complement pathway.

His Complement, Immune system, Atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome, Autoantibody and Lupus erythematosus study are his primary interests in Immunology. His CD46 research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Decay-accelerating factor, Virology, Transfection and Cell biology. His research integrates issues of Cell culture, Antibody, Gene, Immunoprecipitation and Receptor in his study of Molecular biology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Complement system (34.71%)
  • Immunology (29.27%)
  • CD46 (24.39%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Complement system (34.71%)
  • Immunology (29.27%)
  • Complement (12.01%)

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

John P. Atkinson mainly investigates Complement system, Immunology, Complement, Cell biology and Alternative complement pathway. His work in CD46 and Classical complement pathway is related to Complement system. His CD46 research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Autophagy and T cell.

His studies in Immunology integrate themes in fields like Biomarker, Genetic association and Macular degeneration. John P. Atkinson combines subjects such as Receptor, Cell culture and Complement membrane attack complex with his study of Cell biology. His research in Alternative complement pathway intersects with topics in Bronchoalveolar lavage, Complement factor B, Incubation and Von Willebrand factor.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Early Components of the Complement Classical Activation Pathway in Human Systemic Autoimmune Diseases. (79 citations)
  • The complement system in COVID-19: friend and foe? (71 citations)
  • Regulators of Complement Activity Mediate Inhibitory Mechanisms Through a Common C3B-Binding Mode. (59 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Internal medicine

His scientific interests lie mostly in Complement system, Immunology, Cell biology, Immune system and Alternative complement pathway. His Complement system research includes elements of Disease and Complement. His Immunology study incorporates themes from Receptor and Genetic association.

His Cell biology research includes themes of Choroid and Macular degeneration. His work carried out in the field of Immune system brings together such families of science as Immunoglobulin E and Neutrophilia. His Alternative complement pathway study which covers Complement factor B that intersects with C3-convertase, Complement receptor 1, Innate immune system and Factor H.
