Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Gene expression

His main research concerns Trypanosoma brucei, Cell biology, Cellular differentiation, RNA and Biochemistry. His Trypanosoma brucei research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Phosphatase, Protozoa, Tsetse fly, Trypanosoma and Axoneme. His Organelle study, which is part of a larger body of work in Cell biology, is frequently linked to Protein targeting, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His Cellular differentiation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Regulation of gene expression, RNA interference, Signal transduction and Cell division. His work in Regulation of gene expression covers topics such as Gene expression which are related to areas like Phenotype. His work on Genome, Pseudogene and RNA polymerase as part of his general Gene study is frequently connected to Proteolytic enzymes and General transcription factor, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science.

His most cited work include:

  • The genome of the kinetoplastid parasite, Leishmania major. (1152 citations)
  • A novel epitope tag system to study protein targeting and organelle biogenesis in Trypanosoma brucei. (246 citations)
  • A common pyrimidine-rich motif governs trans-splicing and polyadenylation of tubulin polycistronic pre-mRNA in trypanosomes. (219 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Trypanosoma brucei, Cell biology, Genetics, Trypanosoma and Gene expression. The concepts of his Trypanosoma brucei study are interwoven with issues in Evolutionary biology, Regulation of gene expression and RNA interference. Keith R. Matthews has researched Cell biology in several fields, including Quorum sensing, Cell cycle and Cellular differentiation.

The various areas that Keith R. Matthews examines in his Trypanosoma study include Trypanosomiasis and Antigenic variation. His Gene expression study also includes

  • Molecular biology which connect with Polyadenylation and Transcription,
  • Three prime untranslated region that intertwine with fields like Regulatory sequence. Keith R. Matthews studies Genome, a branch of Gene.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Trypanosoma brucei (64.44%)
  • Cell biology (45.93%)
  • Genetics (25.19%)

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

  • Trypanosoma brucei (64.44%)
  • Cell biology (45.93%)
  • Quorum sensing (8.89%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Trypanosoma brucei, Cell biology, Quorum sensing, Trypanosoma and Regulation of gene expression. His work carried out in the field of Trypanosoma brucei brings together such families of science as Evolutionary biology, Gene expression, Basement membrane, Matrix and Extracellular matrix. His Gene expression research integrates issues from Proteome and Genome.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Glycosome and Gene, Virulence. The study incorporates disciplines such as Gene silencing and Signal transduction in addition to Quorum sensing. His work in Regulation of gene expression addresses issues such as Mutant, which are connected to fields such as Protein kinase A.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Oligopeptide signaling through TbGPR89 drives Trypanosome Quorum sensing (44 citations)
  • Mitochondrial DNA is critical for longevity and metabolism of transmission stage Trypanosoma brucei (22 citations)
  • A gene expression comparison of Trypanosoma brucei and Trypanosoma congolense in the bloodstream of the mammalian host reveals species-specific adaptations to density-dependent development. (15 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Gene expression

Keith R. Matthews spends much of his time researching Cell biology, Trypanosoma brucei, Quorum sensing, Trypanosoma and Signal transduction. He has included themes like Transporter and Virulence in his Cell biology study. His work blends Trypanosoma brucei and Tropism studies together.

He interconnects Host, Computational biology, Protozoa and Bacteria in the investigation of issues within Quorum sensing. His Trypanosoma study incorporates themes from Gene expression, Gene expression profiling, Messenger RNA, Gene and Regulation of gene expression. Keith R. Matthews has included themes like RNA interference and Gene silencing in his Signal transduction study.
