Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Neuron

Kazuhiro Ikenaka spends much of his time researching Cell biology, Neuroscience, Oligodendrocyte, Gene expression and Molecular biology. His studies deal with areas such as Biochemistry, Astrocyte, Ion channel and Cholinergic neuron as well as Cell biology. In general Neuroscience study, his work on Spinal cord often relates to the realm of Population, thereby connecting several areas of interest.

His Oligodendrocyte study introduces a deeper knowledge of Myelin. Kazuhiro Ikenaka has included themes like Polysialic acid, Mutant and Gene isoform in his Gene expression study. Kazuhiro Ikenaka interconnects Enhancer, Promoter, Nucleic acid thermodynamics and Cancer cell in the investigation of issues within Molecular biology.

His most cited work include:

  • The reeler gene-associated antigen on cajal-retzius neurons is a crucial molecule for laminar organization of cortical neurons (787 citations)
  • Molecular and functional characterization of a novel mouse transient receptor potential protein homologue TRP7. Ca(2+)-permeable cation channel that is constitutively activated and enhanced by stimulation of G protein-coupled receptor. (413 citations)
  • The basic helix-loop-helix factor olig2 is essential for the development of motoneuron and oligodendrocyte lineages. (386 citations)

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

Kazuhiro Ikenaka mostly deals with Cell biology, Neuroscience, Molecular biology, Oligodendrocyte and Biochemistry. The Cell biology study combines topics in areas such as Cellular differentiation, Immunology, Astrocyte, Myelin and OLIG2. In his research, Anatomy is intimately related to Forebrain, which falls under the overarching field of OLIG2.

His research in Neuroscience focuses on subjects like Neural stem cell, which are connected to Precursor cell. His work in Molecular biology addresses subjects such as Gene expression, which are connected to disciplines such as Messenger RNA. Kazuhiro Ikenaka works mostly in the field of Oligodendrocyte, limiting it down to topics relating to Proteolipid protein 1 and, in certain cases, Remyelination, as a part of the same area of interest.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (41.32%)
  • Neuroscience (29.34%)
  • Molecular biology (20.78%)

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

  • Cell biology (41.32%)
  • Neuroscience (29.34%)
  • Oligodendrocyte (22.49%)

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

Kazuhiro Ikenaka mainly focuses on Cell biology, Neuroscience, Oligodendrocyte, Myelin and Microglia. Kazuhiro Ikenaka has researched Cell biology in several fields, including Precursor cell, Gene expression, Astrocyte and Glycoprotein. In his work, Cortex is strongly intertwined with Neural stem cell, which is a subfield of Neuroscience.

His study in Oligodendrocyte is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both White matter, Cellular differentiation, Biological neural network, Morphogenesis and Depolarization. His Myelin research incorporates themes from Nervous system, Mitochondrion and Pathology. His Immunology study incorporates themes from Gene knockdown, In situ hybridization, Molecular biology, Peripheral nervous system and Programmed cell death.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Transformation of Astrocytes to a Neuroprotective Phenotype by Microglia via P2Y1 Receptor Downregulation (119 citations)
  • A Novel Subtype of Astrocytes Expressing TRPV4 (Transient Receptor Potential Vanilloid 4) Regulates Neuronal Excitability via Release of Gliotransmitters (65 citations)
  • Temporal identity transition from Purkinje cell progenitors to GABAergic interneuron progenitors in the cerebellum (53 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Neuron

His scientific interests lie mostly in Neuroscience, Cell biology, Oligodendrocyte, Myelin and Cellular differentiation. His Neuroscience study frequently involves adjacent topics like Neurotransmission. His research integrates issues of Downregulation and upregulation, Immunology, Astrocyte, Microglia and Neuroinflammation in his study of Cell biology.

Rabies virus, Sensory cortex, Demyelinating Disorder and Corpus callosum is closely connected to White matter in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Oligodendrocyte. His Myelin research includes themes of Forebrain, Transcription factor and Optogenetics. His studies in Cellular differentiation integrate themes in fields like Morphogenesis and Precursor cell.
