Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Enzyme
  • Gene
  • Bacteria

Biochemistry, Entamoeba histolytica, Microbiology, Peptide sequence and Cell biology are his primary areas of study. His Biochemistry study deals with Antimicrobial intersecting with Effector. The concepts of his Entamoeba histolytica study are interwoven with issues in Cysteine, Gene, Protozoa and Amoeba.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Molecular biology and Giardia lamblia. His study on Phagosome and Antimicrobial peptides is often connected to Lysin and Hemagglutination as part of broader study in Microbiology. His Peptide sequence research includes themes of Amino acid, Plasma protein binding, Sphingomyelin, Antibacterial activity and Peptide.

His most cited work include:

  • The genome of the protist parasite Entamoeba histolytica (719 citations)
  • Granulysin, a T Cell Product, Kills Bacteria by Altering Membrane Permeability (181 citations)
  • Uncovering the evolutionary history of innate immunity: the simple metazoan Hydra uses epithelial cells for host defence. (173 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Biochemistry, Microbiology, Entamoeba histolytica, Cell biology and Antimicrobial peptides. His study in Peptide sequence, Peptide, Membrane, Enzyme and Cysteine is carried out as part of his Biochemistry studies. His Microbiology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Gene, Virulence and Bacteria.

He interconnects Protozoa, Molecular biology, Cytolysis, Molecular cloning and Effector in the investigation of issues within Entamoeba histolytica. The Cell biology study which covers Cytotoxic T cell that intersects with Degranulation. The Antimicrobial peptides study combines topics in areas such as Innate immune system, Immune system and Ciona intestinalis.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Biochemistry (43.20%)
  • Microbiology (39.64%)
  • Entamoeba histolytica (31.36%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Microbiology (39.64%)
  • Cell biology (17.75%)
  • Bacteria (16.57%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Microbiology, Cell biology, Bacteria, Antimicrobial peptides and Biochemistry. In general Microbiology study, his work on Pathogen and Antimicrobial often relates to the realm of Surra, thereby connecting several areas of interest. His Cell biology research integrates issues from CD8, Acanthamoeba castellanii, Membrane, Cytoskeleton and Pore-forming toxin.

His study on Bacteria also encompasses disciplines like

  • Multicellular organism that connect with fields like Nematode caenorhabditis elegans, Genome and Nematode,
  • Dictyostelium discoideum, which have a strong connection to Lysozyme, Effector, NADPH oxidase and Bacillus subtilis. His research in Antimicrobial peptides intersects with topics in Entamoeba histolytica, Structure–activity relationship, Gram-negative bacteria and Virulence. His research on Biochemistry frequently links to adjacent areas such as Entamoeba invadens.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Superdiffusion dominates intracellular particle motion in the supercrowded cytoplasm of pathogenic Acanthamoeba castellanii (120 citations)
  • Quantitative proteome analysis of Caenorhabditis elegans upon exposure to nematicidal Bacillus thuringiensis. (33 citations)
  • Characterization and Function of the First Antibiotic Isolated from a Vent Organism: The Extremophile Metazoan Alvinella pompejana (33 citations)

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

  • Enzyme
  • Gene
  • Bacteria

Matthias Leippe mostly deals with Acanthamoeba castellanii, Proteomics, Cytoplasm, Live cell imaging and Vesicle. Matthias Leippe has included themes like Contact lens, Cell adhesion and Lens in his Acanthamoeba castellanii study. His work carried out in the field of Proteomics brings together such families of science as Proteome, Caenorhabditis elegans, Model organism, Biological activity and Innate immune system.

His Model organism study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Molecular biology, Computational biology and Effector. His studies in Innate immune system integrate themes in fields like Bacillus thuringiensis, Transcriptome, Regulator gene and Quantitative proteomics. His Cytoplasm research is under the purview of Cell biology.
