Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Neuron

Melitta Schachner mainly investigates Cell biology, Neural cell adhesion molecule, Neuroscience, Cell adhesion molecule and Neurite. Her Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Myelin and Immunology. In her study, Polysialic acid is strongly linked to Hippocampal formation, which falls under the umbrella field of Neural cell adhesion molecule.

Her Neuroscience research incorporates themes from Synaptic plasticity, Extracellular matrix and Postsynaptic potential. Her studies deal with areas such as Fibronectin, L1, Cell adhesion and Cell–cell interaction as well as Cell adhesion molecule. Her Neurite study combines topics in areas such as Molecular biology, Lipid raft and Nervous system.

Her most cited work include:

  • Monoclonal antibodies (O1 to O4) to oligodendrocyte cell surfaces: An immunocytological study in the central nervous system (1058 citations)
  • Neural cell adhesion molecules and myelin-associated glycoprotein share a common carbohydrate moiety recognized by monoclonal antibodies L2 and HNK-1. (670 citations)
  • Neural recognition molecules of the immunoglobulin superfamily: signaling transducers of axon guidance and neuronal migration (668 citations)

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

Melitta Schachner mainly focuses on Cell biology, Neuroscience, Neural cell adhesion molecule, Neurite and Cell adhesion molecule. Her studies in Cell biology integrate themes in fields like Myelin, Biochemistry, Immunology and Nervous system. Her study in Neuroscience is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Synaptic plasticity and Long-term potentiation.

Her Neural cell adhesion molecule study incorporates themes from Receptor, Internal medicine, Immunoglobulin superfamily and Endocrinology. Her Neurite research integrates issues from Molecular biology, Fibronectin, Signal transduction and Phosphorylation. Her Cell adhesion molecule research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Laminin, Cell adhesion, Cell–cell interaction and L1.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (65.71%)
  • Neuroscience (45.02%)
  • Neural cell adhesion molecule (33.05%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2011-2021)?

  • Spinal cord injury (15.61%)
  • Neuroscience (45.02%)

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

Melitta Schachner focuses on Cell biology, Spinal cord injury, Neuroscience, Neurite and Nervous system. Her Cell biology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Neural cell adhesion molecule and Immunology. Her research integrates issues of Lumbar Spinal Cord, Central nervous system, Astrocyte and Zebrafish in her study of Spinal cord injury.

In her research, Tenascin C and Long-term potentiation is intimately related to Synaptic plasticity, which falls under the overarching field of Neuroscience. Melitta Schachner has researched Neurite in several fields, including Embryonic stem cell, Remyelination, Cell adhesion, Peptide and Glial scar. Her Nervous system research includes elements of Astrogliosis, In vitro, Axon and Regeneration.

Between 2011 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • HMGB1 in Development and Diseases of the Central Nervous System (127 citations)
  • Neural Cell Adhesion Molecules of the Immunoglobulin Superfamily Regulate Synapse Formation, Maintenance, and Function (100 citations)
  • Neural Cell Adhesion Molecules of the Immunoglobulin Superfamily Regulate Synapse Formation, Maintenance, and Function (100 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Internal medicine

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Cell biology, Neuroscience, Nervous system, Spinal cord injury and Neurite. Her work deals with themes such as HEK 293 cells and Neural cell adhesion molecule, which intersect with Cell biology. Her Neural cell adhesion molecule study incorporates themes from Synapse and Synaptic vesicle, Synaptic vesicle recycling.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Synaptic plasticity, Immune system and Tenascin-R in addition to Neuroscience. Her studies deal with areas such as Neural development, Central nervous system, Spinal Cord Regeneration, Zebrafish and Regeneration as well as Nervous system. Her Neurite study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cell migration, Molecular biology, Remyelination, Myelin basic protein and MAPK/ERK pathway.
