What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Enzyme
  • Gene
  • DNA

His primary scientific interests are in Biochemistry, Synechocystis, Gene, Cyanobacteriochrome and Photosystem II. His Biochemistry study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Phycobilisome. His Synechocystis study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Phototaxis, Botany, Biophysics, Cell biology and Photosystem.

His Phototaxis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cyanobacteria and Protein structure. To a larger extent, Masahiko Ikeuchi studies Genetics with the aim of understanding Gene. His work carried out in the field of Photosystem II brings together such families of science as Photosynthetic reaction centre, Thylakoid, Spinach, Molecular mass and Molecular biology.

His most cited work include:

  • DNA Microarray Analysis of Cyanobacterial Gene Expression during Acclimation to High Light (414 citations)
  • Klebsormidium flaccidum genome reveals primary factors for plant terrestrial adaptation (330 citations)
  • Complete genome structure of the thermophilic cyanobacterium Thermosynechococcus elongatus BP-1. (297 citations)

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

Masahiko Ikeuchi focuses on Biochemistry, Gene, Cyanobacteria, Photosystem II and Biophysics. Biochemistry is a component of his Mutant, Synechocystis, Photosystem I, Thylakoid and Thermophile studies. Many of his studies on Gene involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Molecular biology.

He has researched Cyanobacteria in several fields, including Photosynthesis and Botany. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Photosystem II, Tetrapyrrole is strongly linked to Photochemistry. He applies his multidisciplinary studies on Biophysics and Cyanobacteriochrome in his research.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Biochemistry (41.75%)
  • Gene (21.36%)
  • Cyanobacteria (22.01%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Cyanobacteriochrome (14.24%)
  • Cyanobacteria (22.01%)
  • Biophysics (15.86%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Cyanobacteriochrome, Cyanobacteria, Biophysics, Biochemistry and Chromophore. His Cyanobacteriochrome study is associated with Bilin. His Cyanobacteria study also includes

  • Photosynthesis which intersects with area such as Synechocystis,
  • Cell that connect with fields like Transcription, Regulation of gene expression and Repressor.

His Biophysics research includes themes of Diatom, Botany, Phototroph, Cell aggregation and Phycobilisome. His research in Botany intersects with topics in Chromatic scale and Mutant. In general Gene study, his work on Whole genome sequencing often relates to the realm of Strain, thereby connecting several areas of interest.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Three cyanobacteriochromes work together to form a light color-sensitive input system for c-di-GMP signaling of cell aggregation (63 citations)
  • Diatom Phytochromes Reveal the Existence of Far-Red-Light-Based Sensing in the Ocean (59 citations)
  • A biliverdin-binding cyanobacteriochrome from the chlorophyll d-bearing cyanobacterium Acaryochloris marina. (58 citations)

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

  • Enzyme
  • Gene
  • DNA

Masahiko Ikeuchi mainly focuses on Cyanobacteriochrome, Chromophore, Phycocyanobilin, Biophysics and Botany. He interconnects Photochemistry and Acaryochloris marina in the investigation of issues within Phycocyanobilin. His Botany study combines topics in areas such as Cell aggregation and Mutant.

His Cyanobacteria research incorporates elements of Regulator gene and Photosystem. Subfamily is a primary field of his research addressed under Biochemistry. His Biochemistry study frequently links to other fields, such as Pinene.
