Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Enzyme
  • Gene
  • Botany

Kyoungwhan Back focuses on Biochemistry, Melatonin, Genetically modified rice, Serotonin and Enzyme. His study involves Tryptamine, Enzyme assay, Aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase, Tryptophan and Gene expression, a branch of Biochemistry. His work deals with themes such as Molecular biology and Molecular cloning, which intersect with Enzyme assay.

His research integrates issues of Mutant, Acetylserotonin O-methyltransferase, Oryza sativa, O-methyltransferase and N-Acetylserotonin in his study of Melatonin. His research in Genetically modified rice intersects with topics in Wild type and Botany. He usually deals with Serotonin and limits it to topics linked to Endocrinology and In vivo, Darkness, Melatonin synthesis, Octopamine and Enzyme activator.

His most cited work include:

  • Melatonin‐rich transgenic rice plants exhibit resistance to herbicide‐induced oxidative stress (150 citations)
  • Characterization of rice tryptophan decarboxylases and their direct involvement in serotonin biosynthesis in transgenic rice. (139 citations)
  • Enhanced production of melatonin by ectopic overexpression of human serotonin N-acetyltransferase plays a role in cold resistance in transgenic rice seedlings (138 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Biochemistry, Genetically modified rice, Melatonin, Transgene and Gene. His study in Serotonin, Enzyme, Tyramine, Enzyme assay and Tryptamine falls within the category of Biochemistry. The Tryptamine study combines topics in areas such as Tryptophan and Aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase.

His Genetically modified rice study combines topics in areas such as Wild type, Botany, Plastid and Protoporphyrinogen oxidase. Kyoungwhan Back has included themes like Arabidopsis, Mutant, Caffeic acid, Cell biology and N-Acetylserotonin in his Melatonin study. His studies deal with areas such as Jasmonic acid and Chlorophyll as well as Transgene.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Biochemistry (60.90%)
  • Genetically modified rice (48.08%)
  • Melatonin (35.90%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Melatonin (35.90%)
  • Genetically modified rice (48.08%)
  • Cell biology (12.18%)

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

Kyoungwhan Back mainly focuses on Melatonin, Genetically modified rice, Cell biology, Biochemistry and Wild type. Kyoungwhan Back has researched Melatonin in several fields, including Arabidopsis, Enzyme, Gene, Caffeic acid and Serotonin. The subject of his Genetically modified rice research is within the realm of Genetically modified crops.

His study looks at the relationship between Genetically modified crops and fields such as Subcellular localization, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. In his works, he conducts interdisciplinary research on Biochemistry and Cadmium. Tryptophan is closely connected to Brassinosteroid in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Wild type.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Melatonin biosynthesis in plants: multiple pathways catalyze tryptophan to melatonin in the cytoplasm or chloroplasts (126 citations)
  • On the significance of an alternate pathway of melatonin synthesis via 5-methoxytryptamine: comparisons across species (116 citations)
  • Overexpression of rice serotonin N‐acetyltransferase 1 in transgenic rice plants confers resistance to cadmium and senescence and increases grain yield (71 citations)
