Vytas A. Bankaitis mainly focuses on Biochemistry, Phosphatidylinositol transfer protein, Cell biology, Golgi apparatus and Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The concepts of his Phosphatidylinositol transfer protein study are interwoven with issues in Phosphatidylcholine Biosynthesis, Secretory protein, Diacylglycerol kinase and Cell membrane. The Cell biology study combines topics in areas such as Exocytosis, Secretory Vesicle and Lipid metabolism.
His Golgi apparatus study deals with Phosphatidylcholine intersecting with Biophysics. His work on Fungal protein as part of general Saccharomyces cerevisiae research is often related to Cathepsin A, thus linking different fields of science. He usually deals with Phosphatidylinositol and limits it to topics linked to Membrane protein and Complementation and In vivo.
His primary areas of study are Cell biology, Biochemistry, Phosphatidylinositol transfer protein, Phosphatidylinositol and Golgi apparatus. His studies deal with areas such as Lipid metabolism and Lipid signaling as well as Cell biology. His research related to Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Yeast, Phospholipid transfer protein, Membrane protein and Secretion might be considered part of Biochemistry.
As a member of one scientific family, Vytas A. Bankaitis mostly works in the field of Phosphatidylinositol transfer protein, focusing on Phospholipase D and, on occasion, Phospholipase D activity. His Phosphatidylinositol research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Phosphatidylethanolamine, Phosphatidylcholine, Biophysics, Phosphatidylserine and Membrane. His Golgi apparatus research incorporates themes from Transport protein and Endosome.
Vytas A. Bankaitis focuses on Cell biology, Phosphatidylinositol, Phosphatidylinositol transfer protein, Lipid signaling and Kinase. His research combines Vesicle and Cell biology. His study in Phosphatidylinositol is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Plasma protein binding, Phosphatidylethanolamine, Phosphatidylcholine, Biophysics and Golgi apparatus.
The study incorporates disciplines such as Apical membrane, Endosome membrane and Cell polarity in addition to Golgi apparatus. His work carried out in the field of Phosphatidylinositol transfer protein brings together such families of science as Cell signaling and Heme binding. His research in Lipid signaling intersects with topics in Plant lipid transfer proteins, Helix, Function, Yeast and Lipid metabolism.
Cell biology, Lipid signaling, Phosphatidylinositol, Phosphatidylinositol transfer protein and Neural stem cell are his primary areas of study. In his study, Organelle and Lipid droplet is strongly linked to Membrane protein, which falls under the umbrella field of Cell biology. He combines subjects such as Membrane and Endosome with his study of Lipid signaling.
His Phosphatidylinositol research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Developmental biology, Stem cell, Neuroblast, Asymmetric cell division and Myosin. His work on Phosphatidylinositol transfer protein is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Kinase. The various areas that Vytas A. Bankaitis examines in his Neural stem cell study include Golgi apparatus, Cell, Cell polarity, Neurogenesis and Apical membrane.
