Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Virus
  • DNA

Konstantin G. Kousoulas spends much of his time researching Virology, Molecular biology, Virus, Cell fusion and Herpes simplex virus. He has included themes like Open reading frame, Lobar pneumonia and Pasteurella multocida in his Virology study. Konstantin G. Kousoulas combines subjects such as Amino acid, Restriction map, Peptide sequence, Mutant and Epitope with his study of Molecular biology.

His Virus research is mostly focused on the topic Viral envelope. His studies in Cell fusion integrate themes in fields like Vero cell and Glycoprotein. His Herpes simplex virus study combines topics in areas such as Lipid bilayer fusion and Viral replication.

His most cited work include:

  • Identification of adropin as a secreted factor linking dietary macronutrient intake with energy homeostasis and lipid metabolism. (202 citations)
  • Anatomy of the herpes simplex virus 1 strain F glycoprotein B gene: primary sequence and predicted protein structure of the wild type and of monoclonal antibody-resistant mutants. (162 citations)
  • Structures of and allelic diversity and relationships among the major outer membrane protein (ompA) genes of the four chlamydial species. (142 citations)

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

Virology, Virus, Herpes simplex virus, Molecular biology and Glycoprotein are his primary areas of study. His work deals with themes such as Immune system and Recombinant DNA, which intersect with Virology. His research integrates issues of Mutation and Recombinant virus in his study of Virus.

His research in Herpes simplex virus intersects with topics in Viral envelope, Cytoplasm, Viral entry, Viral replication and Cell fusion. He has researched Molecular biology in several fields, including Amino acid, Biochemistry, Gene, Mutant and Epitope. His Glycoprotein research incorporates elements of Plasma protein binding and Signal peptide.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Virology (47.33%)
  • Virus (38.67%)
  • Herpes simplex virus (37.33%)

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

  • Virology (47.33%)
  • Herpes simplex virus (37.33%)
  • Virus (38.67%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Virology, Herpes simplex virus, Virus, Immune system and Cancer research. His Virology study incorporates themes from Mutant, Cell fusion and Glycoprotein. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Vero cell, Viral envelope and Lipid bilayer fusion.

His Herpes simplex virus study combines topics in areas such as Viral vector, Recombinant DNA, Guinea pig, Antigen and Cell biology. His Viral replication and Viral entry study, which is part of a larger body of work in Virus, is frequently linked to Bovine herpesvirus 1, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Viral replication research integrates issues from Infectivity, Molecular biology and Viral tegument.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The anti-HIV drug nelfinavir mesylate (Viracept) is a potent inhibitor of cell fusion caused by the SARSCoV-2 spike (S) glycoprotein warranting further evaluation as an antiviral against COVID-19 infections. (59 citations)
  • Vaccination of rhesus macaques with the live-attenuated HSV-1 vaccine VC2 stimulates the proliferation of mucosal T cells and germinal center responses resulting in sustained production of highly neutralizing antibodies (20 citations)
  • The HSV-1 live attenuated VC2 vaccine provides protection against HSV-2 genital infection in the guinea pig model of genital herpes (17 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Virus
  • DNA

Konstantin G. Kousoulas mostly deals with Herpes simplex virus, Virology, Virus, Immune system and Viral envelope. His Herpes simplex virus study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Pathogenesis, Guinea pig, Antigen, Attenuated vaccine and Disease. His Virology study frequently involves adjacent topics like Cell fusion.

His research in Virus intersects with topics in Molecular biology and Viral tegument. In Immune system, Konstantin G. Kousoulas works on issues like Antibody, which are connected to CD58, Cell, Jurkat cells, Biochemistry and Proximity ligation assay. His study looks at the relationship between Viral envelope and topics such as Viral entry, which overlap with Protein kinase B and Cell biology.
