Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • DNA

Kan Tanaka mainly focuses on Gene, Sigma factor, Genetics, Molecular biology and RNA polymerase. Gene is a component of his Transcription, Plastid, Gene expression, Nuclear gene and Chloroplast studies. His Chloroplast research incorporates elements of Botany and Cell biology.

His Sigma factor study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Bacillaceae, Mutant, Regulon and rpoS. Kan Tanaka interconnects Gene product and DNA in the investigation of issues within Molecular biology. His RNA polymerase research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Nucleic acid sequence and Transfer RNA.

His most cited work include:

  • Genome sequence of the ultrasmall unicellular red alga Cyanidioschyzon merolae 10D (885 citations)
  • A hierarchical quorum-sensing cascade in Pseudomonas aeruginosa links the transcriptional activators LasR and RhIR (VsmR) to expression of the stationary-phase sigma factor RpoS (600 citations)
  • Heterogeneity of the principal sigma factor in Escherichia coli: the rpoS gene product, sigma 38, is a second principal sigma factor of RNA polymerase in stationary-phase Escherichia coli. (305 citations)

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

Kan Tanaka mainly investigates Gene, Cyanidioschyzon merolae, Genetics, Sigma factor and Biochemistry. Gene is closely attributed to Molecular biology in his work. Kan Tanaka has included themes like Plasmid, Transformation, Centromere and Mitochondrion, Cell biology in his Cyanidioschyzon merolae study.

Kan Tanaka focuses mostly in the field of Cell biology, narrowing it down to matters related to Chloroplast and, in some cases, Arabidopsis thaliana. His Sigma factor study is concerned with the field of RNA polymerase as a whole. His study explores the link between Biochemistry and topics such as Cyanobacteria that cross with problems in Photosynthesis.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Gene (44.55%)
  • Cyanidioschyzon merolae (44.55%)
  • Genetics (35.55%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Cyanidioschyzon merolae (44.55%)
  • Biochemistry (33.18%)
  • Cell biology (31.75%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Cyanidioschyzon merolae, Biochemistry, Cell biology, Gene and Genetics. His study in Cyanidioschyzon merolae is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Transformation, Botany, Nuclear gene, Lipid droplet and Eukaryote. His research in Cell biology intersects with topics in Chloroplast, ATP synthase, Bacillus subtilis and Chlamydomonas reinhardtii.

His study in Transcription factor, Mutant, Sigma factor, Genome and Regulation of gene expression falls within the category of Gene. Sigma factor is the subject of his research, which falls under Transcription. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Identification and Strain.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The whole set of constitutive promoters recognized by RNA polymerase RpoD holoenzyme of Escherichia coli. (74 citations)
  • Capillary electrophoresis–mass spectrometry reveals the distribution of carbon metabolites during nitrogen starvation in Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 (61 citations)
  • Target of rapamycin (TOR) plays a critical role in triacylglycerol accumulation in microalgae (43 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • DNA

His main research concerns Biochemistry, Cyanidioschyzon merolae, Gene, Cell biology and Genetics. His Cyanidioschyzon merolae research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Strain, Lipid droplet and Intracellular. His work in Transcription factor and Mutant is related to Gene.

The concepts of his Cell biology study are interwoven with issues in Tetrapyrrole, Ferrochelatase, Protochlorophyllide and Arabidopsis thaliana. Kan Tanaka studies Promoter, a branch of Genetics. His work deals with themes such as RNA polymerase and Transcription, which intersect with Promoter.
