What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Internal medicine

His main research concerns Biochemistry, Endocrinology, Internal medicine, Nitric oxide and Receptor. The study incorporates disciplines such as Molecular biology and Cell biology in addition to Biochemistry. Solomon H. Snyder has researched Cell biology in several fields, including NMDA receptor, Glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase and Synaptic plasticity.

Solomon H. Snyder interconnects Glutamate receptor, Neurotoxicity and Arginine, Citrulline in the investigation of issues within Nitric oxide. His Receptor research incorporates themes from Pharmacology and Binding site. In his study, Neurotransmission is inextricably linked to Neurotransmitter, which falls within the broad field of Nitric oxide synthase.

His most cited work include:

  • Isolation of nitric oxide synthetase, a calmodulin-requiring enzyme. (3032 citations)
  • Localization of nitric oxide synthase indicating a neural role for nitric oxide (2696 citations)
  • Handbook of psychopharmacology (2630 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Biochemistry, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Receptor and Cell biology. His Biochemistry study frequently links to other fields, such as Nitric oxide. His Endocrinology study frequently intersects with other fields, such as Serotonin.

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

Solomon H. Snyder focuses on Cell biology, Biochemistry, Signal transduction, Pharmacology and Neuroscience. His Cell biology research includes themes of Neurodegeneration, Neuroprotection and Inositol. His study on Neurodegeneration also encompasses disciplines like

  • Huntington's disease that connect with fields like Molecular biology and Neurotoxicity,
  • Huntingtin together with Striatum.

His Signal transduction study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Nitrosylation, Nitric oxide, Cystathionine beta synthase and Gasotransmitters. As part of his inquiry into Endocrinology and Internal medicine, Solomon H. Snyder is doing Nitric oxide research. His Pharmacology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Receptor, Nucleus accumbens and Dopamine.

Between 2008 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • H2S Signals Through Protein S-Sulfhydration (751 citations)
  • H2S signalling through protein sulfhydration and beyond (485 citations)
  • Hydrogen sulfide-linked sulfhydration of NF-κB mediates its antiapoptotic actions. (430 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Internal medicine

His primary areas of investigation include Cell biology, Biochemistry, Signal transduction, Nitric oxide and Internal medicine. His Cell biology research integrates issues from S-Nitrosylation, Neurodegeneration, Neuroprotection, Receptor and Molecular biology. His Biochemistry study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Nitrosylation.

Solomon H. Snyder has researched Signal transduction in several fields, including Gasotransmitters, Cysteine, Phosphorylation and Inositol. The Nitric oxide study combines topics in areas such as Biophysics, Membrane potential, Endothelium and Endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor.
