Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Neuron

Cell biology, Neural cell adhesion molecule, Neuroscience, Cell adhesion molecule and Neurite are her primary areas of study. Her studies deal with areas such as Myelin and Immunology as well as Cell biology. Her study looks at the intersection of Neural cell adhesion molecule and topics like Hippocampal formation with Polysialic acid.

Her research in Neuroscience intersects with topics in Synaptic plasticity, Extracellular matrix and Postsynaptic potential. As a part of the same scientific study, Melitta Schachner usually deals with the Cell adhesion molecule, concentrating on L1 family and frequently concerns with Growth cone. She has included themes like Lipid raft, Fibronectin, Neuron, Nervous system and Molecular biology in her Neurite study.

Her most cited work include:

  • Monoclonal antibodies (O1 to O4) to oligodendrocyte cell surfaces: An immunocytological study in the central nervous system (1046 citations)
  • Neural cell adhesion molecules and myelin-associated glycoprotein share a common carbohydrate moiety recognized by monoclonal antibodies L2 and HNK-1. (665 citations)
  • Neural recognition molecules of the immunoglobulin superfamily: signaling transducers of axon guidance and neuronal migration (646 citations)

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

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Cell biology, Neuroscience, Neural cell adhesion molecule, Neurite and Cell adhesion molecule. Her Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Myelin, Biochemistry, Immunology and Nervous system. Her research in Neuroscience tackles topics such as Synaptic plasticity which are related to areas like Long-term potentiation.

Her research integrates issues of Endocrinology, Internal medicine, Immunoglobulin superfamily and Cell–cell interaction in her study of Neural cell adhesion molecule. Her Neurite study combines topics in areas such as Fibronectin, Tenascin, Molecular biology, Signal transduction and Phosphorylation. Melitta Schachner has included themes like Laminin, Extracellular matrix, Cell adhesion and L1 in her Cell adhesion molecule study.
