Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Biochemistry

His main research concerns Biochemistry, Glycoprotein, Polysialic acid, Molecular biology and Glycan. Neural cell adhesion molecule, Glycoconjugate, Enzyme, Residue and Peptide are the primary areas of interest in his Biochemistry study. His Glycoprotein research includes themes of Sialic acid, Cytosol, Peptide sequence, Endoplasmic reticulum and Stereochemistry.

The Polysialic acid study combines topics in areas such as Polyvinylidene fluoride and Antibody. The concepts of his Molecular biology study are interwoven with issues in Blood proteins, Cell culture, Messenger RNA and Polyclonal antibodies. Ken Kitajima works mostly in the field of Glycan, limiting it down to concerns involving Mannose and, occasionally, Mole and Molecule.

His most cited work include:

  • Inhibition of herpes simplex virus infection by tannins and related compounds. (153 citations)
  • Hypoxic culture induces expression of sialin, a sialic acid transporter, and cancer-associated gangliosides containing non-human sialic acid on human cancer cells (132 citations)
  • Secretion of a peripheral membrane protein, MFG-E8, as a complex with membrane vesicles. (127 citations)

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

Ken Kitajima mainly focuses on Biochemistry, Glycoprotein, Sialic acid, Polysialic acid and Glycan. His Biochemistry study incorporates themes from Molecular biology and Stereochemistry. His Stereochemistry research incorporates themes from Residue and Oligosaccharide.

Ken Kitajima focuses mostly in the field of Glycoprotein, narrowing it down to topics relating to Peptide sequence and, in certain cases, Amino acid. His Polysialic acid study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Neurotrophic factors and Cell biology. His Glycan research integrates issues from Glycopeptide and Oryzias.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Biochemistry (61.63%)
  • Glycoprotein (28.98%)
  • Sialic acid (25.71%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Sialic acid (25.71%)
  • Biochemistry (61.63%)
  • Cell biology (16.73%)

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

His primary areas of study are Sialic acid, Biochemistry, Cell biology, Polysialic acid and Glycan. His work on SIGLEC is typically connected to Structural diversity as part of general Sialic acid study, connecting several disciplines of science. His works in Glycoprotein, Glycoconjugate, Residue, Mannose and Cell are all subjects of inquiry into Biochemistry.

His Glycoprotein research incorporates elements of Glycolipid, Sulfation and Epitope. His research in Cell biology intersects with topics in Receptor and Enzyme. His Polysialic acid research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Phenotype, Gene expression and Neuroscience.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Systems glycomics of adult zebrafish identifies organ-specific sialylation and glycosylation patterns. (29 citations)
  • Chemical Synthesis and Evaluation of a Disialic Acid-Containing Dextran Polymer as an Inhibitor for the Interaction between Siglec 7 and Its Ligand. (13 citations)
  • Different properties of polysialic acids synthesized by the polysialyltransferases ST8SIA2 and ST8SIA4. (11 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Biochemistry

Cell biology, Sialic acid, Polysialic acid, Biochemistry and Enzyme are his primary areas of study. His Cell biology research incorporates themes from Receptor, Dopamine receptor D2 and Striatum. His study explores the link between Sialic acid and topics such as Glycan that cross with problems in Antibody, Microbiology, Immune system and Pathogen.

His research integrates issues of Gene expression and Brefeldin A in his study of Polysialic acid. His Biochemistry study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Function. His Enzyme research integrates issues from Model organism, Phenotype, Glycoprotein, Epitope and Glycoconjugate.
