Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Internal medicine

His primary areas of investigation include Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Skeletal muscle, AMPK and Insulin. His research on Internal medicine often connects related topics like AMP-activated protein kinase. His Endocrinology study focuses mostly on Glycogen synthase, Glycogen, Physical exercise, Exercise physiology and Muscle contraction.

His Skeletal muscle research includes themes of Gene expression, Carnitine, Endurance training, Intracellular and Myocyte. Jørgen F. P. Wojtaszewski interconnects Carbohydrate metabolism and Type 2 diabetes in the investigation of issues within Insulin. His Insulin receptor study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Protein kinase B and Glucose homeostasis.

His most cited work include:

  • Targeted disruption of the glucose transporter 4 selectively in muscle causes insulin resistance and glucose intolerance. (571 citations)
  • Knockout of the α2 but Not α1 5′-AMP-activated Protein Kinase Isoform Abolishes 5-Aminoimidazole-4-carboxamide-1-β-4-ribofuranosidebut Not Contraction-induced Glucose Uptake in Skeletal Muscle (503 citations)
  • The AMP-activated protein kinase α2 catalytic subunit controls whole-body insulin sensitivity (451 citations)

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

Jørgen F. P. Wojtaszewski spends much of his time researching Endocrinology, Internal medicine, Skeletal muscle, Insulin and AMPK. Endocrinology is closely attributed to AMP-activated protein kinase in his research. His Phosphorylation research extends to Internal medicine, which is thematically connected.

His studies in Skeletal muscle integrate themes in fields like Protein kinase B, Exercise physiology, Muscle contraction, Physical exercise and Kinase. His research integrates issues of Diabetes mellitus and Type 2 diabetes in his study of Insulin. His AMPK study combines topics in areas such as Mitochondrion and Metabolism.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Endocrinology (87.55%)
  • Internal medicine (87.55%)
  • Skeletal muscle (70.57%)

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

  • Internal medicine (87.55%)
  • Endocrinology (87.55%)
  • Skeletal muscle (70.57%)

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

Jørgen F. P. Wojtaszewski focuses on Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Skeletal muscle, Glucose uptake and Insulin. The Internal medicine study combines topics in areas such as Diabetes mellitus and Type 2 diabetes. The concepts of his Endocrinology study are interwoven with issues in AMP-activated protein kinase, Phosphorylation and Fatty acid.

His Skeletal muscle research incorporates themes from Glycolysis, Metabolism, AMPK and Intracellular, Cell biology. His AMPK study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as mTORC1, Anabolism and Stimulation. His studies deal with areas such as Vastus lateralis muscle, Insulin signalling, Contraction and Perfusion as well as Glucose uptake.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Extracellular Vesicles Provide a Means for Tissue Crosstalk during Exercise (170 citations)
  • AMPK in skeletal muscle function and metabolism. (128 citations)
  • Activation of Skeletal Muscle AMPK Promotes Glucose Disposal and Glucose Lowering in Non-human Primates and Mice. (108 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Internal medicine

His primary areas of investigation include Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Skeletal muscle, AMPK and Glucose uptake. As a member of one scientific family, Jørgen F. P. Wojtaszewski mostly works in the field of Internal medicine, focusing on Fatty acid and, on occasion, Lipogenesis and Carbohydrate. His Endocrinology research includes elements of DNM1L and Mitochondrial fission.

His work carried out in the field of Skeletal muscle brings together such families of science as AMP-activated protein kinase, Type 2 diabetes and Cell biology. His research in AMPK intersects with topics in Anabolism, Intracellular and Metabolism. His Glucose uptake research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Catabolism and Mitochondrion.
