Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Bacteria
  • Enzyme

Julie A. Theriot spends much of her time researching Cell biology, Actin, Motility, Actin cytoskeleton and Arp2/3 complex. The concepts of her Cell biology study are interwoven with issues in MDia1, Microfilament, Vesicle and Lamellipodium. Her work deals with themes such as Cell, Mutant, Listeria monocytogenes, Intracellular and Paracytophagy, which intersect with Actin.

Her work is dedicated to discovering how Motility, Cytoplasm are connected with Viscoelasticity and other disciplines. Her Actin cytoskeleton study combines topics in areas such as Biophysics, Protein filament and Organelle. Her study looks at the relationship between Arp2/3 complex and topics such as Actin remodeling, which overlap with Actin remodeling of neurons.

Her most cited work include:

  • Actin microfilament dynamics in locomoting cells (697 citations)
  • Mechanism of shape determination in motile cells (550 citations)
  • Differentiation and developmental pathways of uropathogenic Escherichia coli in urinary tract pathogenesis. (463 citations)

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

Julie A. Theriot focuses on Cell biology, Actin, Biophysics, Motility and Listeria monocytogenes. Her Cell biology research incorporates elements of MDia1, Actin cytoskeleton, Arp2/3 complex, Microfilament and Lamellipodium. As a member of one scientific family, Julie A. Theriot mostly works in the field of Arp2/3 complex, focusing on Actin remodeling and, on occasion, Actin remodeling of neurons.

Her Actin study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cell, Cytoskeleton, Cytoplasm, Leading edge and Myosin. In her research, Cell envelope and Cell division is intimately related to Peptidoglycan, which falls under the overarching field of Biophysics. She has researched Listeria monocytogenes in several fields, including Pathogen, Microbiology, Mutant and Intracellular.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (42.06%)
  • Actin (35.62%)
  • Biophysics (28.76%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Cell biology (42.06%)
  • Biophysics (28.76%)
  • Listeria monocytogenes (21.89%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Cell biology, Biophysics, Listeria monocytogenes, Actin and Cell. Julie A. Theriot interconnects Tissue homeostasis, Osmotic concentration, Zebrafish, Competition and Innate immune system in the investigation of issues within Cell biology. Her Biophysics research integrates issues from Peptidoglycan, Phagocytosis, Cell envelope and Envelope.

Julie A. Theriot has included themes like Epithelium, Microbiology, Matrix, Intracellular and Extracellular matrix in her Listeria monocytogenes study. Her research integrates issues of Cell migration, Actin cytoskeleton, Leading edge, Motility and Myosin in her study of Actin. Her Motility research includes themes of Cell culture and Green fluorescent protein.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • The outer membrane is an essential load-bearing element in Gram-negative bacteria. (142 citations)
  • Identification of phagocytosis regulators using magnetic genome-wide CRISPR screens. (51 citations)
  • Surface Area to Volume Ratio: A Natural Variable for Bacterial Morphogenesis. (42 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Bacteria
  • Enzyme

Julie A. Theriot focuses on Biophysics, Cell biology, Cell envelope, Peptidoglycan and Cell. Her work focuses on many connections between Biophysics and other disciplines, such as Cell migration, that overlap with her field of interest in Green fluorescent protein, Motility and Leading edge. Julie A. Theriot combines subjects such as Viability assay, Listeria monocytogenes and In vivo with her study of Cell biology.

Her Cell envelope research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Corynebacterium, Corynebacterium glutamicum, Cell division and Envelope. The study incorporates disciplines such as Infected cell and Gene expression, Gene in addition to Cell. Gene and Actin are commonly linked in her work.
