Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Bacteria

Michael P. Jennings mainly investigates Microbiology, Neisseria meningitidis, Gene, Mutant and Genetics. He specializes in Microbiology, namely Neisseria gonorrhoeae. His Neisseria meningitidis study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Pilus, Glycosylation, Antigenic variation, Peptide sequence and Neisseriaceae.

His studies deal with areas such as Molecular biology and Neisseria as well as Gene. His Molecular biology research includes elements of Wild type, Glycosyltransferase, Operon and Locus. Mutant is a subfield of Biochemistry that Michael P. Jennings studies.

His most cited work include:

  • DNA repeats identify novel virulence genes in Haemophilus influenzae (286 citations)
  • Meningococcal pilin: a glycoprotein substituted with digalactosyl 2,4-diacetamido-2,4,6-trideoxyhexose. (230 citations)
  • Cloning of the Lipooligosaccharide α-2,3-Sialyltransferase from the Bacterial Pathogens Neisseria meningitidis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae (196 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Microbiology, Gene, Neisseria meningitidis, Biochemistry and Mutant. The concepts of his Microbiology study are interwoven with issues in Neisseria, Antigen and Virulence. His research investigates the connection with Gene and areas like Molecular biology which intersect with concerns in Escherichia coli.

Michael P. Jennings focuses mostly in the field of Neisseria meningitidis, narrowing it down to topics relating to Nucleic acid and, in certain cases, Amino acid. His work deals with themes such as Bacteriology and Periplasmic space, which intersect with Mutant. The various areas that Michael P. Jennings examines in his Phase variation study include Antigenic variation, Gene expression, Epigenetics and DNA methyltransferase.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Microbiology (58.74%)
  • Gene (26.22%)
  • Neisseria meningitidis (25.52%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Microbiology (58.74%)
  • Glycan (10.84%)
  • Gene (26.22%)

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

Microbiology, Glycan, Gene, Phase variation and Receptor are his primary areas of study. His research in Microbiology intersects with topics in Sialic acid, Antigen and Virulence. His study explores the link between Virulence and topics such as Neisseria meningitidis that cross with problems in Neisseria.

He has researched Glycan in several fields, including Lectin, Bacterial adhesin and Recombinant DNA. His Gene study is associated with Genetics. His Phase variation course of study focuses on Methyltransferase and Gene expression.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • MCC950 directly targets the NLRP3 ATP-hydrolysis motif for inflammasome inhibition (165 citations)
  • Glycointeractions in bacterial pathogenesis (61 citations)
  • Human CD45 is an F-component-specific receptor for the staphylococcal toxin Panton–Valentine leukocidin (43 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Bacteria

Michael P. Jennings mostly deals with Microbiology, Phase variation, Gene, Epigenetics and Regulon. His biological study focuses on Haemophilus influenzae. His DNA methylation and Genome study are his primary interests in Gene.

His study focuses on the intersection of Epigenetics and fields such as Computational biology with connections in the field of DNA sequencing and Host adaptation. Regulon is a subfield of Genetics that Michael P. Jennings tackles. Michael P. Jennings combines subjects such as Organism and Neisseria meningitidis with his study of Neisseria.
