Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Biochemistry

Richard A. Murphy spends much of his time researching Biophysics, Phosphorylation, Myosin light-chain kinase, Biochemistry and Myosin. His Biophysics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Isometric exercise and Smooth muscle. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Contraction and Muscle contraction, CrossBridge.

His Myosin light-chain kinase research incorporates elements of Phosphatase, Dephosphorylation and Sodium nitroprusside. His Biochemistry study incorporates themes from Hippocampus and Central nervous system. The study incorporates disciplines such as Endocrinology, Internal medicine and Actin in addition to Myosin.

His most cited work include:

  • Myosin phosphorylation and the cross-bridge cycle in arterial smooth muscle. (646 citations)
  • Cross-bridge phosphorylation and regulation of latch state in smooth muscle (359 citations)
  • Differential Sorting of Nerve Growth Factor and Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor in Hippocampal Neurons (297 citations)

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

Richard A. Murphy focuses on Biophysics, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Myosin and Phosphorylation. His studies deal with areas such as Contraction, Anatomy and Smooth muscle as well as Biophysics. His Endocrinology research incorporates themes from Epidermal growth factor and Cell biology.

His Myosin research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Myofibril, Muscle contraction and Actin. His Phosphorylation study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Stimulation, Vascular smooth muscle and Depolarization. The concepts of his Myosin light-chain kinase study are interwoven with issues in Immunoglobulin light chain and Myofilament.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Biophysics (44.44%)
  • Internal medicine (40.17%)
  • Endocrinology (39.32%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1996-2005)?

  • Myosin (38.46%)
  • Biochemistry (29.06%)
  • Phosphorylation (35.90%)

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

Richard A. Murphy mainly investigates Myosin, Biochemistry, Phosphorylation, Cell biology and Internal medicine. His Myosin study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Contraction and Muscle contraction. His Biochemistry research includes elements of Hippocampus and Central nervous system.

He combines subjects such as Immunoglobulin light chain and Biophysics with his study of Phosphorylation. His work carried out in the field of Biophysics brings together such families of science as Phosphatase and Dephosphorylation. His work deals with themes such as Endocrinology and Constitutive secretory pathway, which intersect with Internal medicine.

Between 1996 and 2005, his most popular works were:

  • Differential Sorting of Nerve Growth Factor and Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor in Hippocampal Neurons (297 citations)
  • Mammalian subtilisin/kexin isozyme SKI-1: A widely expressed proprotein convertase with a unique cleavage specificity and cellular localization (266 citations)
  • Activation of Myosin Light Chain Phosphatase in Intact Arterial Smooth Muscle During Nitric Oxide-induced Relaxation (122 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Biochemistry

His scientific interests lie mostly in Brain-derived neurotrophic factor, Biochemistry, Cell biology, Internal medicine and Endocrinology. His studies in Biochemistry integrate themes in fields like Hippocampus and Central nervous system. The Internal medicine study which covers Enzyme inhibitor that intersects with Sodium nitroprusside and Myosin light-chain kinase.

The Sodium nitroprusside study combines topics in areas such as Myosin light chain kinase activity, Phosphatase, Myosin-light-chain phosphatase, Phosphorylation and Biophysics. His research on Myosin light-chain kinase often connects related areas such as Dephosphorylation. Richard A. Murphy specializes in Endocrinology, namely Cyclic guanosine monophosphate.
