Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • DNA

Peter N. Devreotes mainly focuses on Cell biology, Chemotaxis, G protein, Dictyostelium discoideum and Signal transduction. His study in Cell biology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cell polarity, Actin cytoskeleton, Cytoskeleton and Dictyostelium. He interconnects Pseudopodia, Cell, Multicellular organism, Actin and Morphogenesis in the investigation of issues within Chemotaxis.

His work carried out in the field of G protein brings together such families of science as Mutant, Pleckstrin homology domain and Cyclic AMP receptors. His Dictyostelium discoideum research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in MDia1 and Receptor. His study focuses on the intersection of Signal transduction and fields such as Cell migration with connections in the field of GTPase.

His most cited work include:

  • A Cell's Sense of Direction (765 citations)
  • Electrical signals control wound healing through phosphatidylinositol-3-OH kinase-γ and PTEN (660 citations)
  • Tumor suppressor PTEN mediates sensing of chemoattractant gradients. (604 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Cell biology, Chemotaxis, Dictyostelium, Dictyostelium discoideum and Signal transduction. His work deals with themes such as Receptor, Cell migration and Cytoskeleton, which intersect with Cell biology. His Chemotaxis research incorporates elements of Pseudopodia, Cell, Actin, Cell polarity and Actin cytoskeleton.

His Dictyostelium study is related to the wider topic of Biochemistry. His studies in Dictyostelium discoideum integrate themes in fields like Secretion, Endocrinology, Cyclase, Intracellular and Adenylate kinase. His Signal transduction research integrates issues from Phenotype and Cell aggregation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (61.82%)
  • Chemotaxis (37.09%)
  • Dictyostelium (36.00%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Cell biology (61.82%)
  • Cell migration (15.27%)
  • Biophysics (9.82%)

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

His primary areas of study are Cell biology, Cell migration, Biophysics, Signal transduction and Dictyostelium. His Cell biology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cell, Actin cytoskeleton, Chemotaxis and Dictyostelium discoideum. His Chemotaxis research incorporates themes from Cancer cell and Stimulation.

His study in Cell migration is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Regulator, Phosphatidylinositol, Biological system and Cytoskeleton. His Signal transduction research includes elements of Pseudopodia and Neuroscience. His research in Motility intersects with topics in Hyperactivation and Receptor, G protein, Ligand.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Excitable Signal Transduction Networks in Directed Cell Migration. (82 citations)
  • Altering the threshold of an excitable signal transduction network changes cell migratory modes (65 citations)
  • A Tunable Brake for HECT Ubiquitin Ligases (51 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • DNA

His scientific interests lie mostly in Cell biology, Cell migration, Cytoskeleton, Signal transduction and PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway. His work deals with themes such as Cell culture, Chemotaxis, Growth factor and Dictyostelium, which intersect with Cell biology. The Chemotaxis study combines topics in areas such as Carcinogenesis and PTEN.

His Cell migration study also includes fields such as

  • Actin cytoskeleton that connect with fields like Cell adhesion, Dictyostelium discoideum, Filamentous actin, Genetic screen and RHOA,
  • Phosphatidylinositol, which have a strong connection to Morphogenesis and Receptor tyrosine kinase. The various areas that Peter N. Devreotes examines in his Cytoskeleton study include Pseudopodia and Regulator. Many of his studies involve connections with topics such as Cell and Signal transduction.
