His primary areas of investigation include Biochemistry, Cell wall, Xyloglucan, Membrane protein and Tic complex. Within one scientific family, Kenneth Keegstra focuses on topics pertaining to Biophysics under Biochemistry, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Cellulose fiber. His Cell wall research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Hemicellulose, Arabidopsis thaliana, Biosynthesis and Polysaccharide.
His Xyloglucan research focuses on Xylosyltransferase and how it connects with Root hair. He focuses mostly in the field of Membrane protein, narrowing it down to topics relating to Peptide sequence and, in certain cases, Transit Peptide. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Membrane and Adenosine triphosphate.
Kenneth Keegstra mainly investigates Biochemistry, Cell wall, Chloroplast, Arabidopsis and Xyloglucan. His study in Gene, Membrane protein, Transit Peptide, Tic complex and Transport protein falls within the category of Biochemistry. His Cell wall study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Hemicellulose, Cellulose, Biosynthesis, Polysaccharide and Golgi apparatus.
His study in Chloroplast is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Membrane, Chromosomal translocation and Organelle, Cell biology. The various areas that Kenneth Keegstra examines in his Arabidopsis study include Arabidopsis thaliana and Botany. His Xyloglucan research includes themes of Galactosyltransferase, Xylosyltransferase, Fucosyltransferase and Residue.
His primary areas of study are Biochemistry, Arabidopsis, Gene, Mixed-linkage glucan and Golgi apparatus. He merges many fields, such as Biochemistry and Enzyme structure, in his writings. Kenneth Keegstra has researched Arabidopsis in several fields, including Xyloglucan, Mannan and Tropaeolum.
The concepts of his Xyloglucan study are interwoven with issues in Arabidopsis thaliana, Nasturtium, Complementary DNA, Galactosyltransferase and Tropaeolum majus. His Gene research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Trigonella and Endosperm. In his study, Cell wall, Subcellular localization, Brefeldin A, Brachypodium and Callose is inextricably linked to Brachypodium distachyon, which falls within the broad field of Mixed-linkage glucan.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Biochemistry, Arabidopsis, Mutant, Xyloglucan and Tropaeolum. His study in the field of Gene, Fucosylation and Cell wall also crosses realms of Mannan synthase activity. His work carried out in the field of Fucosylation brings together such families of science as Arabinogalactan, Fucosyltransferases, Rhamnose and Wild type.
He interconnects Glycome, Gene expression and Glucan in the investigation of issues within Cell wall. Mannan synthase activity combines with fields such as Endosperm, Mannan, Trigonella and Glycosyltransferase in his research. His Tropaeolum study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Galactosyltransferase, Arabidopsis thaliana, Nasturtium and Complementary DNA.
