Masatoshi Takeichi spends much of his time researching Cadherin, Cell biology, Cell adhesion molecule, Cell adhesion and Catenin. Masatoshi Takeichi interconnects Molecular biology, Neuroscience and Cell–cell interaction in the investigation of issues within Cadherin. His Cell biology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Morphogenesis and Cytoskeleton.

His Cell adhesion molecule research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Biochemistry, Metastasis, Cadherin binding and Pathology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Cell aggregation, Cell culture, Mouse Teratocarcinoma, Cell membrane and Transmembrane protein in addition to Cell adhesion. His research integrates issues of Beta-catenin and Phosphorylation, Tyrosine phosphorylation in his study of Catenin.

His most cited work include:

  • Cadherin cell adhesion receptors as a morphogenetic regulator (2998 citations)
  • The cadherins: cell-cell adhesion molecules controlling animal morphogenesis. (1395 citations)
  • Morphogenetic roles of classic cadherins (1303 citations)

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

His main research concerns Cell biology, Cadherin, Cell adhesion, Cell adhesion molecule and Molecular biology. His studies in Cell biology integrate themes in fields like Cell, Morphogenesis and Adherens junction. His Cadherin research integrates issues from Catenin, Neuroscience, Anatomy and Cell–cell interaction.

His work deals with themes such as Growth cone, Cell aggregation, Peptide sequence and Transmembrane protein, which intersect with Cell adhesion. His study in Cell adhesion molecule is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Embryonic stem cell, Nectin, Biochemistry, Cell type and Embryo.
