Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Apoptosis

Cell biology, Programmed cell death, Apoptosis, Caspase and Molecular biology are his primary areas of study. His Cell biology research focuses on Autophagy and how it connects with Neuroscience. His studies in Programmed cell death integrate themes in fields like Cell and Gene.

His research investigates the connection between Apoptosis and topics such as Necrosis that intersect with problems in Cellular mechanism and Signal transducing adaptor protein. His studies examine the connections between Caspase and genetics, as well as such issues in Immunology, with regards to Brain damage, Cathepsin B, Brain ischemia, Excitotoxicity and Pharmacology. His Molecular biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Oncogene, Mutant, Point mutation, Caspase 8 and Fibroblast.

His most cited work include:

  • Guidelines for the use and interpretation of assays for monitoring autophagy (3rd edition) (4170 citations)
  • Cleavage of BID by Caspase 8 Mediates the Mitochondrial Damage in the Fas Pathway of Apoptosis (3963 citations)
  • Caspase-12 mediates endoplasmic-reticulum-specific apoptosis and cytotoxicity by amyloid-beta. (2881 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Cell biology, Programmed cell death, Apoptosis, Necroptosis and Caspase. The concepts of his Cell biology study are interwoven with issues in Autophagy and Ubiquitin. Junying Yuan has included themes like Cell, Cancer research, Immunology, Gene and Neuroscience in his Programmed cell death study.

Junying Yuan has researched Apoptosis in several fields, including Necrosis, Molecular biology and Endoplasmic reticulum. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Tumor necrosis factor alpha, Structure–activity relationship, Stereochemistry and Kinase activity. His research in Caspase intersects with topics in Caspase 3, Caspase 1 and Proteases.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (69.48%)
  • Programmed cell death (46.32%)
  • Apoptosis (36.78%)

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

  • Cell biology (69.48%)
  • Necroptosis (27.52%)
  • Programmed cell death (46.32%)

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

His main research concerns Cell biology, Necroptosis, Programmed cell death, RIPK1 and Ubiquitin. His work carried out in the field of Cell biology brings together such families of science as Autophagy and Ubiquitin ligase. His Necroptosis research entails a greater understanding of Apoptosis.

His Programmed cell death research also works with subjects such as

  • Computational biology and related Cell and Autolysosome,
  • Immunology that intertwine with fields like Caspase. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Tumor necrosis factor alpha, Cancer research, Kinase activity, Neuroinflammation and Proinflammatory cytokine. In his study, Deubiquitinating enzyme and LUBAC complex is strongly linked to Signal transducing adaptor protein, which falls under the umbrella field of Ubiquitin.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Guidelines for the use and interpretation of assays for monitoring autophagy (3rd edition) (4170 citations)
  • Molecular mechanisms of cell death: recommendations of the Nomenclature Committee on Cell Death 2018. (1421 citations)
  • Molecular definitions of autophagy and related processes (637 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Apoptosis

Junying Yuan mostly deals with Cell biology, RIPK1, Necroptosis, Programmed cell death and Autophagy. All of his Cell biology and Phosphorylation and Homeostasis investigations are sub-components of the entire Cell biology study. Necroptosis is a subfield of Apoptosis that Junying Yuan investigates.

Junying Yuan focuses mostly in the field of Apoptosis, narrowing it down to topics relating to Protein kinase A and, in certain cases, Alzheimer's disease. His Programmed cell death research incorporates themes from Tumor necrosis factor alpha, Neuroscience, Autolysosome, MAP1LC3B and Computational biology. He interconnects Intracellular and Physiology in the investigation of issues within Autophagy.
