Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Neuron
  • Receptor
  • Neurotransmitter

His main research concerns Cell biology, GABAA receptor, Receptor, Neurotransmission and Neuroscience. Josef T. Kittler performs multidisciplinary study in Cell biology and Gephyrin in his work. Josef T. Kittler studies GABAA-rho receptor which is a part of GABAA receptor.

His study in the fields of Immune receptor, Cell surface receptor and Receptor recycling under the domain of Receptor overlaps with other disciplines such as Haploinsufficiency and Collybistin. The Neurotransmission study combines topics in areas such as NMDA receptor, Endocytosis, Inhibitory postsynaptic potential and Postsynaptic potential. His Neuroscience study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as AMPA receptor, Disease and Neuronal homeostasis.

His most cited work include:

  • Miro1 Is a Calcium Sensor for Glutamate Receptor-Dependent Localization of Mitochondria at Synapses (477 citations)
  • Constitutive Endocytosis of GABAA Receptors by an Association with the Adaptin AP2 Complex Modulates Inhibitory Synaptic Currents in Hippocampal Neurons (281 citations)
  • Modulation of GABAA receptor activity by phosphorylation and receptor trafficking: implications for the efficacy of synaptic inhibition (255 citations)

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

Josef T. Kittler mostly deals with Cell biology, GABAA receptor, Receptor, Neurotransmission and Neuroscience. The concepts of his Cell biology study are interwoven with issues in Synaptic plasticity and Endocytosis. His GABAA-rho receptor study in the realm of GABAA receptor interacts with subjects such as Gephyrin.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Signal transduction and Phosphorylation. His Neurotransmission study deals with Glutamate receptor intersecting with Neurotransmitter receptor. His Neuroscience research integrates issues from AMPA receptor and Motility.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (69.57%)
  • GABAA receptor (35.65%)
  • Receptor (31.30%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Cell biology (69.57%)
  • Mitochondrion (24.35%)
  • GTPase (6.96%)

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

Josef T. Kittler spends much of his time researching Cell biology, Mitochondrion, GTPase, Receptor and Inhibitory postsynaptic potential. His Cell biology research incorporates themes from Peroxisome and Neurotransmission. The various areas that Josef T. Kittler examines in his GTPase study include Mitochondrial transport and Inner mitochondrial membrane.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Apoptosis, Epileptogenesis, Intracellular and Vasodilation in addition to Receptor. He works mostly in the field of Inhibitory postsynaptic potential, limiting it down to concerns involving Postsynaptic potential and, occasionally, Excitatory postsynaptic potential and Neuroscience. His Neuroligin research includes themes of SNX27, Retromer, PDZ domain and GABAA receptor.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Nanoscale tweezers for single-cell biopsies (54 citations)
  • Miro clusters regulate ER-mitochondria contact sites and link cristae organization to the mitochondrial transport machinery. (47 citations)
  • Autism and Schizophrenia-Associated CYFIP1 Regulates the Balance of Synaptic Excitation and Inhibition. (44 citations)

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

  • Neuron
  • Biochemistry
  • Apoptosis

His scientific interests lie mostly in Cell biology, Mitochondrion, Inner mitochondrial membrane, GTPase and Multicellular organism. Particularly relevant to Axon is his body of work in Cell biology. His work on RHOT2 as part of general Mitochondrion study is frequently linked to FIS1, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science.

His research integrates issues of Peroxisome, Motor protein and Mitochondrial transport in his study of Inner mitochondrial membrane. His research on Multicellular organism concerns the broader Cell. His research in Autophagy intersects with topics in Computational biology and Programmed cell death.
