What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Cell membrane

Robert G. Parton mainly focuses on Cell biology, Caveolae, Endosome, Endocytosis and Endocytic cycle. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Cell membrane and Cell biology. His Caveolae research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Caveolin 1 and Membrane protein.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Vesicle, Vesicular transport protein, EEA1 and Cytoskeleton in addition to Endosome. His research in Endocytosis intersects with topics in Internalization, Video microscopy and Protein targeting. His Endocytic cycle study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as GTP-binding protein regulators, Phagosome, Phagolysosome, Transferrin receptor and Rab.

His most cited work include:

  • The small GTPase rab5 functions as a regulatory factor in the early endocytic pathway. (1153 citations)
  • The multiple faces of caveolae (1146 citations)
  • Rab11 regulates recycling through the pericentriolar recycling endosome. (1124 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Cell biology, Caveolae, Endosome, Endocytosis and Endocytic cycle. His Cell biology study incorporates themes from Membrane protein and Cell membrane. The concepts of his Caveolae study are interwoven with issues in Integral membrane protein, Caveolin 1 and Lipid raft.

His Endosome study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Transport protein, Vesicle, EEA1 and Organelle. His research links Internalization with Endocytosis. His Rab research extends to Endocytic cycle, which is thematically connected.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (75.75%)
  • Caveolae (29.03%)
  • Endosome (21.27%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Cell biology (75.75%)
  • Caveolae (29.03%)
  • Biophysics (7.55%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Cell biology, Caveolae, Biophysics, Endosome and Cell. His work carried out in the field of Cell biology brings together such families of science as Endocytosis and Zebrafish. His Caveolae research includes themes of Caveolin 1 and Membrane lipids.

His study in Biophysics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Integral membrane protein, Membrane protein, Membrane curvature and Bilayer. His studies in Endosome integrate themes in fields like Autophagy, Lysosome, Phosphorylation and Peripheral membrane protein. His research in Endoplasmic reticulum focuses on subjects like Rab, which are connected to Golgi apparatus.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Minimum information reporting in bio-nano experimental literature. (194 citations)
  • Rab18 promotes lipid droplet (LD) growth by tethering the ER to LDs through SNARE and NRZ interactions. (84 citations)
  • Caveolae: Structure, Function, and Relationship to Disease (78 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Cell membrane

Robert G. Parton mostly deals with Cell biology, Caveolae, Biophysics, Endocytosis and Endosome. His work deals with themes such as Formins and Lipid signaling, which intersect with Cell biology. His work on Caveolin and Cavin is typically connected to Cell and molecular biology as part of general Caveolae study, connecting several disciplines of science.

His Biophysics research incorporates elements of Integral membrane protein, Membrane protein, Apex, Protein–protein interaction and Membrane curvature. His Endocytosis research incorporates themes from Monoclonal antibody therapy, Monoclonal antibody and Mediator. His Endosome research includes elements of Protein subunit, Lysosome and Peripheral membrane protein.
