Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Enzyme
  • Bacteria
  • Gene

Lipid bilayer, Membrane, Biochemistry, Biophysics and Porin are his primary areas of study. His Lipid bilayer research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Ion, Bacterial outer membrane, Reaction rate constant and Gating. His Bacterial outer membrane research incorporates elements of Mutant and Binding site.

His research integrates issues of Chromatography, Membrane potential, Ion channel and Analytical chemistry in his study of Membrane. As a part of the same scientific family, Roland Benz mostly works in the field of Biophysics, focusing on Membrane channel and, on occasion, Membrane transport. His Porin study combines topics in areas such as General bacterial porin family, Voltage-dependent anion channel, Complementary DNA, Cell wall and Mitochondrion.

His most cited work include:

  • Mechanism of Interaction of Different Classes of Cationic Antimicrobial Peptides with Planar Bilayers and with the Cytoplasmic Membrane of Escherichia coli (565 citations)
  • Formation of large, ion-permeable membrane channels by the matrix protein (porin) of Escherichia coli. (445 citations)
  • Permeation of hydrophilic solutes through mitochondrial outer membranes: review on mitochondrial porins (363 citations)
