His scientific interests lie mostly in Cell biology, Molecular biology, Rho-associated protein kinase, Biochemistry and ROCK2. Within one scientific family, he focuses on topics pertaining to NDC80 under Cell biology, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Centromere localization and Chromatin. His Molecular biology study incorporates themes from Apoptosis, ICAD, Apoptotic DNA fragmentation, DNA fragmentation and Caspase.
Many of his studies on Rho-associated protein kinase apply to RHOA as well. His RHOA study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Myosin phosphatase activity and Myosin light-chain kinase, Myosin. His study looks at the relationship between ROCK2 and topics such as MAP2K7, which overlap with Mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase, MAP kinase kinase kinase and Cyclin-dependent kinase 9.
Cell biology, Molecular biology, Biochemistry, Cell culture and Genetics are his primary areas of study. Cell biology and Cadherin are frequently intertwined in his study. His work deals with themes such as Rho-associated protein kinase, Complementary DNA, RNA splicing, Caspase-activated DNase and Intron, which intersect with Molecular biology.
His Rho-associated protein kinase research includes elements of Phosphatase and Myosin light-chain kinase. As part of the same scientific family, Katsuya Okawa usually focuses on Cell culture, concentrating on Cancer research and intersecting with Antigen. His work on Piwi-interacting RNA, Germline, Mutation and Nucleosome as part of general Genetics research is frequently linked to Retrotransposon, bridging the gap between disciplines.
His primary areas of investigation include Cell biology, Molecular biology, Biochemistry, Phosphorylation and Antibody. The study incorporates disciplines such as RNA interference and Actin nucleation in addition to Cell biology. His work in Actin nucleation covers topics such as RHOA which are related to areas like Formins.
His work carried out in the field of Molecular biology brings together such families of science as Embryonic stem cell, Signal transducing adaptor protein, Recombinant DNA, DNA-binding protein and Group II intron. Many of his research projects under Biochemistry are closely connected to RHEB with RHEB, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. His research in Phosphorylation intersects with topics in Synapse and Cancer research.
Katsuya Okawa focuses on Cell biology, Molecular biology, RNA, Retrotransposon and Germline. Katsuya Okawa has included themes like Cell culture, RNA interference and Actin nucleation in his Cell biology study.
