Robert E. Pitas mainly focuses on Apolipoprotein E, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Receptor and Apolipoprotein B. His work on Apolipoproteins E as part of general Apolipoprotein E research is frequently linked to Membrane biogenesis, bridging the gap between disciplines. His work on Lipid metabolism, Insulin resistance and Insulin as part of general Internal medicine research is frequently linked to Enolase and Acyl-CoA, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science.
Robert E. Pitas has included themes like Genetically modified mouse and Downregulation and upregulation in his Endocrinology study. His Receptor study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Very low-density lipoprotein and Central nervous system. His studies deal with areas such as Cell and Internalization as well as Very low-density lipoprotein.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Biochemistry, Apolipoprotein E, Molecular biology, Receptor and Internal medicine. His study in Apolipoprotein E is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Neurite, Cell biology, Gene isoform and Apolipoprotein B. His research in Molecular biology intersects with topics in Genetically modified mouse, Kidney and Scavenger receptor.
His Receptor research is multidisciplinary, relying on both LDL receptor and Low-density lipoprotein. Robert E. Pitas works mostly in the field of Internal medicine, limiting it down to topics relating to Endocrinology and, in certain cases, Fatty liver, as a part of the same area of interest. Robert E. Pitas has researched Very low-density lipoprotein in several fields, including In vitro and Lipid droplet.
His primary areas of investigation include Biochemistry, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Scavenger receptor and Molecular biology. As part of the same scientific family, Robert E. Pitas usually focuses on Internal medicine, concentrating on Methionine and intersecting with Beta oxidation, Lipogenesis, Hypermetabolism and Steatosis. Robert E. Pitas integrates Endocrinology with Leptin receptor in his study.
His Scavenger receptor research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Biglycan, Decorin, Cell adhesion, Cell adhesion molecule and Extracellular matrix. The various areas that Robert E. Pitas examines in his Molecular biology study include Proteoglycan, Receptor and Mutant. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Apolipoprotein E, In vitro, Allele and Metabolism.
Robert E. Pitas spends much of his time researching Apolipoprotein B, Biochemistry, Lipoprotein, Internal medicine and Endocrinology. His work carried out in the field of Apolipoprotein B brings together such families of science as Proteoglycan, Proteoglycan binding, Low-density lipoprotein, LDL receptor and Conformational change. His Biochemistry study often links to related topics such as Molecular biology.
His studies in Lipoprotein integrate themes in fields like Intraperitoneal injection and Transgene. His study in the fields of Lipid metabolism, Insulin resistance and Insulin under the domain of Internal medicine overlaps with other disciplines such as Acyl-CoA and Leptin receptor. His Endocrinology research integrates issues from Fatty liver, Downregulation and upregulation, Fatty acid and Methionine.
