Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Enzyme
  • Amino acid
  • Biochemistry

His main research concerns Biochemistry, Avidin, Chromatography, Biotinylation and Biotin. Biochemistry is closely attributed to Molecular biology in his study. Meir Wilchek has researched Avidin in several fields, including Nanotechnology, Fibronectin, Peptide sequence, Streptavidin and Protein engineering.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Reagent, Hydrazide and Affinity chromatography, Sepharose, Enzyme in addition to Chromatography. His research integrates issues of Lectin, Microscopy, Immunoassay, Fluorescence microscope and Combinatorial chemistry in his study of Biotinylation. His studies deal with areas such as Molecule, Stereochemistry, Sequence and Binding site as well as Biotin.

His most cited work include:

  • Selective enzyme purification by affinity chromatography (891 citations)
  • The avidin-biotin complex in bioanalytical applications (763 citations)
  • The use of the avidin-biotin complex as a tool in molecular biology (554 citations)

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

Meir Wilchek focuses on Biochemistry, Avidin, Chromatography, Biotin and Biotinylation. As a part of the same scientific family, Meir Wilchek mostly works in the field of Biochemistry, focusing on Antibody and, on occasion, Molecular biology. His Avidin study also includes

  • Streptavidin together with Protein structure,
  • Residue most often made with reference to Stereochemistry.

His Chromatography research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Reagent, Affinity chromatography, Enzyme and Adsorption. His work in Affinity chromatography addresses issues such as Sepharose, which are connected to fields such as Cyanogen bromide. His Biotin research incorporates elements of Combinatorial chemistry and Binding site.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Biochemistry (40.99%)
  • Avidin (26.11%)
  • Chromatography (22.45%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2001-2020)?

  • Avidin (26.11%)
  • Biochemistry (40.99%)
  • Allicin (7.83%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Avidin, Biochemistry, Allicin, Stereochemistry and Alliinase. His Avidin research includes elements of Chromatography and Streptavidin. His work deals with themes such as Molecular recognition, Affinity chromatography, Egg white and Molecular binding, which intersect with Chromatography.

His Biochemistry study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Non-covalent interactions. His studies in Allicin integrate themes in fields like Endocrinology, Thiol, Glutathione, Cysteine and Cytotoxicity. His Stereochemistry research integrates issues from Protein structure, Prodrug and Leaving group.

Between 2001 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • The use of the avidin-biotin complex as a tool in molecular biology (554 citations)
  • Essentials of biorecognition: the (strept)avidin-biotin system as a model for protein-protein and protein-ligand interaction. (174 citations)
  • A spectrophotometric assay for allicin, alliin, and alliinase (alliin lyase) with a chromogenic thiol: reaction of 4-mercaptopyridine with thiosulfinates. (86 citations)

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

  • Enzyme
  • Amino acid
  • Biochemistry

His scientific interests lie mostly in Allicin, Biochemistry, Alliinase, Alliin and Avidin. His Allicin study combines topics in areas such as Reagent, Cancer research, Glutathione, Intracellular and Pharmacology. His Alliin study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Monoclonal, Antigen, CD20, Microbiology and Immunotoxin.

His Avidin study is concerned with the larger field of Biotin. Meir Wilchek combines subjects such as Stereochemistry and Biotinylation with his study of Biotin. His work in the fields of Strep-tag overlaps with other areas such as Model system.
