Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Mitosis

Her main research concerns Cell biology, Mitosis, Kinetochore, Microtubule and Centrosome. The concepts of her Cell biology study are interwoven with issues in RNA, Anaphase and Cytokinesis. Karen Oegema focuses mostly in the field of RNA, narrowing it down to matters related to Rab and, in some cases, Histone, RNA interference and Caenorhabditis elegans.

Her Kinetochore research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Spindle apparatus, Spindle pole body and Centromere. Her work in Microtubule covers topics such as Tubulin complex which are related to areas like Plasma protein binding, Xenopus, Protein subunit, Protein family and Peptide sequence. Her Centrosome research focuses on subjects like Centriole, which are linked to PLK4.

Her most cited work include:

  • Functional genomic analysis of cell division in C. elegans using RNAi of genes on chromosome III (801 citations)
  • Functional genomic analysis of cell division in C. elegans using RNAi of genes on chromosome III (801 citations)
  • Full-genome RNAi profiling of early embryogenesis in Caenorhabditis elegans (778 citations)

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

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Cell biology, Microtubule, Mitosis, Kinetochore and Centrosome. Her study in Cell biology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Spindle apparatus, Pericentriolar material, Caenorhabditis elegans and Cytokinesis. Her work in Caenorhabditis elegans addresses issues such as RNA interference, which are connected to fields such as Computational biology and Genome.

Karen Oegema has researched Microtubule in several fields, including Microtubule nucleation and Biorientation. As a part of the same scientific family, she mostly works in the field of Mitosis, focusing on Chromosome segregation and, on occasion, Cohesin. Her Kinetochore study incorporates themes from Centromere and Anaphase.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (100.00%)
  • Microtubule (47.67%)
  • Mitosis (40.70%)

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

  • Cell biology (100.00%)
  • Microtubule (47.67%)
  • Mitosis (40.70%)

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

Karen Oegema focuses on Cell biology, Microtubule, Mitosis, Centrosome and Pericentriolar material. Her Cell biology research integrates issues from Spindle apparatus, Cell division, Cytokinesis and Caenorhabditis elegans. Karen Oegema studied Spindle apparatus and Kinetochore that intersect with Sensory neuron and Nervous system.

Her work in Caenorhabditis elegans tackles topics such as Protein kinase A which are related to areas like Embryonic stem cell. Her Mitosis research includes themes of Gene, Transgene, PLK1, RNA interference and Essential gene. Her work deals with themes such as Tubulin and Chromosome segregation, which intersect with Pericentriolar material.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • TPXL-1 activates Aurora A to clear contractile ring components from the polar cortex during cytokinesis (38 citations)
  • A positive-feedback-based mechanism for constriction rate acceleration during cytokinesis in Caenorhabditis elegans. (35 citations)
  • The G2-to-M Transition Is Ensured by a Dual Mechanism that Protects Cyclin B from Degradation by Cdc20-Activated APC/C (16 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Mitosis

Karen Oegema mainly focuses on Cell biology, Spindle apparatus, Mitosis, Ubiquitin ligase and Microtubule. Karen Oegema studies Cell biology, namely Actin. Her Spindle apparatus research includes elements of Centromere, Centromere Protein A and Centriole.

Her Mitosis study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Spindle pole body. Her work carried out in the field of Microtubule brings together such families of science as Kinetochore microtubule, Ndc80 complex, Kinetochore, Sensory neuron and Nervous system. Karen Oegema combines subjects such as Cortex and Biophysics, Myosin with her study of Cytokinesis.
