His main research concerns Cell biology, Receptor, G protein-coupled receptor, Biochemistry and G protein-coupled receptor kinase. All of his Cell biology and Signal transduction, Beta-Arrestins, G protein, Heterotrimeric G protein and Phosphorylation investigations are sub-components of the entire Cell biology study. His Phosphorylation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Homologous desensitization and Kinase.
Receptor is a subfield of Internal medicine that Robert J. Lefkowitz studies. His work in G protein-coupled receptor addresses issues such as 5-HT5A receptor, which are connected to fields such as Enzyme-linked receptor and Tropomyosin receptor kinase C. His G protein-coupled receptor kinase research incorporates elements of Molecular biology, Rhodopsin-like receptors and Beta adrenergic receptor kinase.
Robert J. Lefkowitz mainly focuses on Receptor, Cell biology, Biochemistry, G protein-coupled receptor and Internal medicine. Robert J. Lefkowitz regularly ties together related areas like Molecular biology in his Receptor studies. His study explores the link between Cell biology and topics such as 5-HT5A receptor that cross with problems in Enzyme-linked receptor.
His work in G protein-coupled receptor addresses subjects such as G protein, which are connected to disciplines such as Biophysics. His Internal medicine research focuses on Endocrinology and how it connects with Homologous desensitization, Dihydroalprenolol and Pharmacology. Robert J. Lefkowitz combines subjects such as Rhodopsin-like receptors and Beta adrenergic receptor kinase with his study of G protein-coupled receptor kinase.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Receptor, G protein-coupled receptor, Cell biology, Arrestin and Signal transduction. As part of the same scientific family, Robert J. Lefkowitz usually focuses on Receptor, concentrating on Endocrinology and intersecting with Adrenergic receptor. G protein-coupled receptor is a subfield of Biochemistry that Robert J. Lefkowitz explores.
His study looks at the relationship between Cell biology and topics such as Internalization, which overlap with Endosome. His Signal transduction study combines topics in areas such as Angiotensin II, Pharmacology and Protein kinase A. His work deals with themes such as 5-HT5A receptor, Rhodopsin-like receptors and Beta adrenergic receptor kinase, which intersect with G protein-coupled receptor kinase.
Robert J. Lefkowitz mainly investigates G protein-coupled receptor, Cell biology, Beta-Arrestins, Signal transduction and Arrestin. Receptor and Biochemistry are the two main areas of interest in his G protein-coupled receptor studies. In his work, Stimulation is strongly intertwined with Ligand, which is a subfield of Receptor.
In his research, Class C GPCR, 5-HT1 receptor and Receptor tyrosine kinase is intimately related to Rhodopsin-like receptors, which falls under the overarching field of Cell biology. His research integrates issues of Angiotensin II, Internalization and Protein kinase A in his study of Signal transduction. His Arrestin study incorporates themes from GTP-binding protein regulators, G protein, Plasma protein binding and Phosphorylation.
