Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Enzyme
  • Botany
  • Metabolism

His main research concerns Photosynthesis, Biochemistry, Botany, Antioxidant and Glutathione. The Photosynthesis study combines topics in areas such as Brassica, Agronomy, Food science and Nitrate reductase. The study incorporates disciplines such as Salicylic acid, Jasmonic acid, Salinity and Nutrient in addition to Botany.

Glutathione reductase is the focus of his Antioxidant research. His Glutathione reductase research incorporates themes from Photosynthetic capacity and APX. His work deals with themes such as Oxidative stress, Ethephon and Thiobarbituric acid, which intersect with Glutathione.

His most cited work include:

  • Salicylic acid-induced abiotic stress tolerance and underlying mechanisms in plants (372 citations)
  • Photosynthetic activity, pigment composition and antioxidative response of two mustard (Brassica juncea) cultivars differing in photosynthetic capacity subjected to cadmium stress. (359 citations)
  • Salicylic acid alleviates decreases in photosynthesis under salt stress by enhancing nitrogen and sulfur assimilation and antioxidant metabolism differentially in two mungbean cultivars (274 citations)

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

Nafees A. Khan spends much of his time researching Photosynthesis, Botany, Brassica, Agronomy and Biochemistry. His study in Photosynthesis is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Glutathione, Antioxidant and Plant physiology. His Antioxidant research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Oxidative stress, Sulfur assimilation and Nitric oxide.

His Botany study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Salicylic acid, Salinity, Nutrient and Nitrate reductase. His studies in Brassica integrate themes in fields like Ethephon, Gibberellic acid and Stomatal conductance. While the research belongs to areas of Biochemistry, Nafees A. Khan spends his time largely on the problem of Cadmium, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Environmental chemistry.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Photosynthesis (39.80%)
  • Botany (30.10%)
  • Brassica (29.59%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Antioxidant (20.92%)
  • Photosynthesis (39.80%)
  • Oxidative stress (15.82%)

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

Nafees A. Khan mainly investigates Antioxidant, Photosynthesis, Oxidative stress, Nitric oxide and Proline. He has researched Antioxidant in several fields, including Brassica and Food science. His Photosynthesis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Glutathione and Horticulture.

In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Oxidative stress, Cell biology is strongly linked to Germination. His work carried out in the field of Proline brings together such families of science as Salicylic acid, RuBisCO and Plant physiology. His Proline oxidase research incorporates themes from Shikimic acid and Valerianaceae, Botany.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Nitric oxide reverses glucose-mediated photosynthetic repression in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) under salt stress (37 citations)
  • Treatment of nitric oxide supplemented with nitrogen and sulfur regulates photosynthetic performance and stomatal behavior in mustard under salt stress. (18 citations)
  • Exogenously-Sourced Ethylene Modulates Defense Mechanisms and Promotes Tolerance to Zinc Stress in Mustard (Brassica juncea L.). (13 citations)

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

  • Enzyme
  • Botany
  • Metabolism

Nafees A. Khan focuses on Antioxidant, Photosynthesis, Nitric oxide, Oxidative stress and Proline. Antioxidant is a subfield of Biochemistry that Nafees A. Khan explores. His study in APX and Glutathione reductase falls under the purview of Biochemistry.

His Nitric oxide study incorporates themes from Phytotoxicity and Abiotic component. His Oxidative stress research includes elements of Cell signaling, Cell biology, Germination and Copper. His work in Proline addresses issues such as Lipid peroxidation, which are connected to fields such as Salicylic acid and RuBisCO.
