Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Enzyme
  • Photosynthesis

Shinichi Takaichi mainly focuses on Carotenoid, Biochemistry, Bacteria, Bacteriochlorophyll and Pigment. His study in Carotenoid is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cyanobacteria and Fatty acid. He has researched Cyanobacteria in several fields, including Red algae, Phototroph, Accessory pigment, Brown algae and Green algae.

His Biochemistry study frequently links to other fields, such as Carotene. His Bacteria research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Phylogenetics and Microbiology. Photochemistry, Chlorophyll a and Violaxanthin is closely connected to Stereochemistry in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Pigment.

His most cited work include:

  • Carotenoids in Algae: Distributions, Biosyntheses and Functions (410 citations)
  • Roseiflexus castenholzii gen. nov., sp. nov., a thermophilic, filamentous, photosynthetic bacterium that lacks chlorosomes. (245 citations)
  • Discovery of Natural Photosynthesis using Zn-Containing Bacteriochlorophyll in an Aerobic Bacterium Acidiphilium rubrum (150 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Biochemistry, Carotenoid, Bacteria, Botany and Bacteriochlorophyll. His work carried out in the field of Biochemistry brings together such families of science as Cyanobacteria and Carotene. His work in the fields of Carotenoid, such as Lycopene, overlaps with other areas such as Glucoside.

His Bacteria research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Strain, Microbiology and Purple bacteria. His work carried out in the field of Botany brings together such families of science as Phylogenetics and Phylogenetic tree. His studies deal with areas such as Photochemistry, Zinc and Plant physiology as well as Bacteriochlorophyll.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Biochemistry (53.76%)
  • Carotenoid (53.76%)
  • Bacteria (28.32%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2008-2017)?

  • Carotenoid (53.76%)
  • Biochemistry (53.76%)
  • Botany (24.86%)

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

Shinichi Takaichi mostly deals with Carotenoid, Biochemistry, Botany, Phototroph and Bacteria. His Carotenoid study incorporates themes from Cyanobacteria, Stereochemistry and Mutant. Shinichi Takaichi interconnects Green algae and Red algae in the investigation of issues within Cyanobacteria.

His Botany study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Phylogenetics, 16S ribosomal RNA, Strain and Microbiology. His Phototroph research includes themes of Ecology and Mangrove. In his work, Photosynthetic bacteria, Proteobacteria and Glucosyltransferase is strongly intertwined with Purple bacteria, which is a subfield of Bacteria.

Between 2008 and 2017, his most popular works were:

  • Carotenoids in Algae: Distributions, Biosyntheses and Functions (410 citations)
  • Genomic structure of an economically important cyanobacterium, Arthrospira (Spirulina) platensis NIES-39. (83 citations)
  • ISOLATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF PARMALES (HETEROKONTA/HETEROKONTOPHYTA/STRAMENOPILES) FROM THE OYASHIO REGION, WESTERN NORTH PACIFIC(1). (53 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Enzyme
  • Photosynthesis

His primary scientific interests are in Botany, Carotenoid, Biochemistry, Ribosomal RNA and 16S ribosomal RNA. His research integrates issues of Cyanobacteria, Halophilic archaeon and Phylogenetics in his study of Botany. His Cyanobacteria research integrates issues from Accessory pigment, Genotype and Algae.

Shinichi Takaichi works on Carotenoid which deals in particular with Lycopene. His 16S ribosomal RNA research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Rhizosphere, Sequence analysis and Microbiology. His Photosynthesis research incorporates elements of Singlet oxygen and Zeaxanthin, Echinenone.
