Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Cell membrane
  • Biochemistry
  • Cell biology

René-Marc Mège mainly investigates Cell biology, Cadherin, Cell adhesion, Cell adhesion molecule and Cytoskeleton. His research on Cell biology frequently links to adjacent areas such as Protein structure. His Cadherin research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Catenin, Cell junction and Cell–cell interaction.

His Cell adhesion research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Extracellular matrix and Transfection. His Extracellular matrix research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Mechanotransduction and Myosin. His Cell adhesion molecule research incorporates elements of Cytoplasm, Neural cell adhesion molecule and Adherens junction.

His most cited work include:

  • E-Cadherin Is the Receptor for Internalin, a Surface Protein Required for Entry of L. monocytogenes into Epithelial Cells (751 citations)
  • Construction of epithelioid sheets by transfection of mouse sarcoma cells with cDNAs for chicken cell adhesion molecules. (271 citations)
  • Force-dependent conformational switch of α-catenin controls vinculin binding. (266 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Cell biology, Cadherin, Cell adhesion, Actin and Cell. He is studying Cell adhesion molecule, which is a component of Cell biology. René-Marc Mège has included themes like Vinculin, Catenin, Cell junction, Fibroblast growth factor receptor and Cell polarity in his Cadherin study.

His Cell adhesion study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Extracellular matrix, Signal transduction, Transfection and Cell–cell interaction. His Actin research includes elements of Focal adhesion, Lamellipodium, Contractility and Myosin. His study in the fields of Cell migration, Multicellular organism and Collective cell migration under the domain of Cell overlaps with other disciplines such as Wound healing and Coupling.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (81.15%)
  • Cadherin (61.48%)
  • Cell adhesion (40.98%)

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

  • Cell (19.67%)
  • Cell biology (81.15%)
  • Biophysics (13.11%)

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

Cell, Cell biology, Biophysics, Actin and Cadherin are his primary areas of study. His work on Cell migration as part of his general Cell study is frequently connected to Coupling and Library science, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His Cell biology study also includes

  • Adherens junction that intertwine with fields like Catenin,
  • Cytoskeleton which intersects with area such as Myosin.

His studies deal with areas such as Focal adhesion, Monolayer, Mechanobiology, Mechanotransduction and Cell polarity as well as Biophysics. The concepts of his Actin study are interwoven with issues in Apoptosis and Lamellipodium. His Cadherin study incorporates themes from Vinculin and Cell adhesion.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Mechanobiology of collective cell behaviours. (262 citations)
  • Integration of Cadherin Adhesion and Cytoskeleton at Adherens Junctions. (98 citations)
  • Nanoscale architecture of cadherin-based cell adhesions (84 citations)
